  • Sam Shields: Will face suspension
    By RotoWire Staff

    Shields will face a two-week suspension if he returns to the NFL, Field Yates of ESPN reports. This suspension likely stems from a drug charge he faced in January. Shields has already said he doesn't plan to return until the 2018 season because of the trouble he's had with concussions. Even with his lockdown abilities at cornerback, Shields' baggage could make him an unappealing free agent once he feels he's ready for a return to the league.

  • Sam Shields: Eyeing return to NFL in 2018
    By RotoWire Staff

    Shields (concussion) is looking to return to the NFL in 2018, Brian Jones of 247Sports reports. Shields suffered the fifth concussion of his career in Week 1 of last season and remained under the league protocol for head injuries through the end of the season before parting ways with Green Bay in February. It isn't clear if he's still dealing with symptoms, but the fact he's aiming to return in 2018 -- and not 2017 -- suggests he still is. The Miami (Fla.) product racked up 18 interceptions and 67 PBUs in 80 career games with the Packers and could be an interesting option on the free-agent market next offseason if he's able to prove that his latest round of head issues is behind him.

  • Sam Shields: Released by Green Bay
    By RotoWire Staff

    Shields (concussion) was released by the Packers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Shields was the first to relay the news of his release via his personal Instagram account, but the transaction had been widely anticipated for a while, as the cornerback is still recovering from a concussion suffered in Week 1 of the season. With Shields' long-term health a significant question mark and the 29-year-old due $8 million and a $500,000 workout bonus for 2017, it was an easy decision for the Packers to make him a cap casualty. Shields has stated that he wants to keep playing, but given his history with concussions, it's unclear if he'll latch on with another team.

  • Packers' Sam Shields: Concussion symptoms linger

    Shields (concussion) admitted he's still experiencing concussion symptoms, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Shields appeared in just one game this season after sustaining a concussion in the season opener. While he stated he hasn't given up on playing football again, the fact he's still experiencing symptoms suggests this injury could threaten his career. Look for further updates on his health throughout the offseason.

  • Shields (concussion) was charged this week with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in a court case stemming from an Oct. 19 incident, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Shield has been on injured reserve since suffering the fifth known concussion of his career in Week 1 of this season. While that has left him unavailable, and likely contemplating retirement, Shields was found with marijuana and drug paraphernalia during an October search of his home on suspicions of drug related activity, WBAY.com reports. Since Shields is involved in an ongoing legal issue, the Packers have refrained from commenting on his situation, but the cornerback is now scheduled for an April 24 plea/sentencing hearing.
