Sam Shields wants a 4 year deal worth 22.4 million dollars

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein reports, Sam Shields is looking for a contract similar to the one Chicago Bears corner Tim Jennings recently signed.

Shields wants a four-year deal worth $22.4 million, meaning that he would make $5.6 million per year. That’s not overpaying, and that’s a pretty team-friendly deal considering the contract would take Shields through the prime of his career. While I have had my issues with his ability as a pure cover corner, Shields has shutdown potential and, again, great ball skills with 17 passes defended last year.

Per @TomSilverstein #Packers CB Sam Shields is looking for a deal on par w/ the Bears’ Tim Jennings, 4 years, $22.4M. Averages $5.6M/year.
