Sam Shields should get paid more than any cornerback on the market

There are some pretty good cornerbacks in free agency this year, but I do not believe anyone of them should get paid more than Sam Shields of the Green Bay Packers.  The guy is 26 years old, he is a taller corner, and a true playmaker.  While guys like Alterraun Verner and Dominique Rodgers Cromartie might demand more money, Shields will be a steal for a team.  The Sarasota, Florida native deserves to get a pretty penny in free agency.
