It's not the least bit shocking to hear Shields will test the market. The No. 22 overall player in Around The League's 101 free agent list is coming off the best season of his career. The speedy cornerback compiled four interceptions and 51 tackles in 14 starts.
While Shields is a solid player, the Packers do have quality depth at cornerback and might not be willing to offer what the fifth-year player is seeking -- at least not yet.
Undrafted out of Miami, Shields played on a $2.023 million restricted free-agent tender last season and is looking for his first big payday.
