Shields is a no-show at OTA’s

Sam Shields was a no-show this week at Packers‘ OTA’s.  Shields is a restricted free agent and has not signed his 1-year tender offer of just over $2-million.

Shields would like a long-term contract extension, but the Packers are in no rush to give him that deal with Casey Hayward and Davon House providing plenty of depth.

Shields played very well in the final two months of last season and the Packers would love to see him take advantage of these off-season opportunities.

J.C. Tretter

Packers draft pick J.C. Tretter, who was expected to compete for a starting job on the inside of the offensive line, broke his ankle in practice on Monday and will miss several months, possible the entire season.  Tretter is expected to undergo surgery soon.
