Rams' Sam Shields: Interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields recorded one tackle, a pass defensed and an interception across 11 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Shields didn't see a ton of action Sunday but made the most of his opportunities, recording his first interception since 2015. The veteran cornerback got snaps with the game out of hand after not receiving a single defensive rep in Week 1. However, after the impressive interception, which he returned 22 yards, Shields could be inclined to see some more regular playing time in the future.

Rams' Sam Shields: Practicing in full pads
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (concussion/suspension) practiced in full pads Sunday, Vincent Bonsignore of the Orange County Register reports.

Shields hasn't put on the pads in live drills since suffering a severe concussion early on during the 2016 season. However, it now seems the cornerback is back to normal, flashing his trademark speed in training camp. If he can stay free of any setbacks throughout the rest of the summer, Shields should combine with fellow offseason acquisitions Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib to give the Rams one of the best groups of cornerbacks in the league.

Rams' Sam Shields: Participating in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (suspension/concussion) was a participant in Wednesday's OTA session, displaying his speed while covering Brandin Cooks, the Rams' official site reports.

Shields appears to be competing as if his last concussion -- the fifth of his career -- is finally behind him. However, OTAs don't have the full contact impact of having full pads on, so it remains to be seen whether or not he's ready for that. Even if he does clear all of the hurdles, Shields will be forced to sit out the first two games of the 2018 season due to a suspension stemming from a drug charge in January of 2017.

Rams' Sam Shields: Signs with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields signed with the Rams on Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Shields has usually been very effective when on the field over the course of his career, collecting 18 interceptions over his six active seasons, but has trouble staying healthy. He suffered the fourth career known concussion of his career in the first game of the 2016 season and has not played since. As is the case, this move is a risky one for Los Angeles, with another concussion possibly ending Shields' career, but with the defensive backfield already solidified with new acquisitions Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, the Rams found the risk was worth taking.

Sam Shields: Aiming for return to NFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (suspension) is expected to return to the NFL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Shields has been sidelined since sustaining the fifth known concussion of his career Week 1 of the 2016 season. In the interim, he was charged with marijuana possession in January of 2017 and subsequently levied a two-game suspension by the NFL, which he'll be subject to if he latches on with an organization. According to Schefter, Shields will make his first visit with the Browns this week.
