Green Bay Packers corner-back Sam Shields will be testing the free agency market this off-season.
Shields is coming off a career year when it comes to combined tackles, as he was able to record 61 in 2013 in what may be his final year with the Green Bay Packers. He tied his career high in interceptions with four.
The four year veteran had an interception in two key games this year for the Packers. He had one in that come from behind victory against the Dallas Cowboys that helped keep his team in the hunt for the NFC North, then against the Chicago Bears in that Week 17 match up that decided the division champion.
Now Shields played a huge role with this Packers defense, so what exactly is he worth to this team? You would have to think he’s going to be receiving a lot of interest from teams in the league, even the Chicago Bears will give him a look.
But according to Ian Rapoport on Twitter, it appears that the Packers are going to try to give him a deal that would be less than $6 million annually.

Will Sam Shields end up re-signing with the Green Bay Packers before March 11th? We’ll just have to wait and see.
