Shields is a solid starting CB, playing on an undrafted free agent's salary.

He deserves a new contract. Pay the man.

Darryl Krejci needs a reality check.

Shields is an incredible player. He deserves fair market value for his experience and level of play. Just because $2M is a lot of money to Krejci, doesn't mean it is a fair deal for a top starting CB.

I would agree he is underpaid relative to his performance over the second half of last season. However how quick we are to forget how badly he got torched the year before. I dont like giving guys big deals after 1 year of solid production. If he wants a big long term deal go out and play like you did last season and I'm all for giving you the dough! If you put together even half a season like you did last year dish out a extension mid season and all parties are happy!

Half a year of solid production.

I'm sure the Packers have offered a long term contract extension. Looking at who his agent is, I bet I know where the problem lies.

He was instrumental in our 2010 championship, so I don't want to hear anything about 1/2 a season cause that's a bunch of bs, unless people want to argue about his two picks against the Bears that solidified the trip to the SB. I have a bad feeling about all of this with Shields because he has Drew Rosenhaus as an agent and I don't think the Packers have good rapport with that guy. It seems to me, Ted would have already had a guy like Shields locked up, especially considering Tramon's gimpy shoulder.

The only knock on Shields was is 2011 season.. but again there were off field issues that contributed to that as well.

As Troy notes.. he was a key component to us hoisting the SB trophy is 2010 and played very consistently last season.

We also forget... he was an undrafted free agent and honestly has been playing for peanuts (comparatively to others) up until now. He is playing the only card he has right now to secure a larger payday moving forward, sure he could sign the 2 million dollar tender and hit the open market next season.. but if he is happy here, why not secure a couple year deal and lock down his future completely financially.

Do I like this part of the business.. nope.. but it is what it is.. and I am sure it will resolve itself prior to camp.

wooooo I'm not disagreeing with you. But we need to slow down on the rush to judgement a bit.


I do agree Shields out played his contract, but before saying pay the man we need to know what he's asking for.

Just like Jennings this offseason.... of course we would love to have Jennings back.... at the right price.

In contract talks, it takes two to tango...


A report came out saying Thompson meet with the agents of both D-Smith and Shields. It could of just been to talk about the tender they were going to put on them. But it was reported as Thompson was trying to sign both to long term terms (at the Packers price). D-Smith choose to just sign the tender which makes sense seeing as he could be the season long starter which could add to his vaule (or hurt it).


My point is we don't know what Thompson offered (or if he offered anything) nor do we know what Shields is asking for. If he's asking for 10 million a year, then I say don't pay the man... that's probably too much. If he's asking in the 4 million a year then I think that very well might be fair for a long term term when you're gambling on his potential...

That being said, giving a lot of money to some guys makes them get more distracted by other things and get worse on the field. Not saying Shields is one of those guys but you never know.

On a side note... I'm still a bit surpised how big he got it

Starks was instrumental in the 2010 championship. Should they give him a blank check too?

I think Shields should be offered (and probably has been offered) a fair contract extension that offers him some security and doesn't break the bank.

But for all we know Rosenhaus has him believing he should be paid more than Tramon Williams. That may be true but the money that was paid to Tramon is gone...

Lots of players are UFA after this season. If you give all the money to Shields, how are you gonna pay Raji, Burnett, Quarless, James Jones, or M.D. Jennings?

I'd have more sympathy for him if he wasn't skipping OTAs.
