Shields signs tender, will practice today

Sam Shields didn’t get his long-term contract with the Green Bay Packers, but he did sign the 1-year tender with the team worth more than $2-million.  That means Shields will be on the practice field for the first day of the Packers mandatory June minicamp in Green Bay today.

Shields agent Drew Rosenhaus left a face-to-face meeting yesterday with the possibility of still negotiating a long-term deal for his client.

Shields played in 12 games last season and was the team’s top cornerback.

Because Shields didn’t have a contract, he was not able to workout during OTA’s.
