Sam Shields likely to reach free agency

Packer Report's Bill Huber believes it's "increasingly likely" free agent CB Sam Shields will hit the open market.

Shields will surely seek to max out his contractual worth, which may put him out of conservative GM Ted Thompson's price range. Cornerback is arguably the deepest position on Green Bay's roster, with Tramon Williams, Casey Hayward, Davon House, and Micah Hyde all under contract for 2014. Shields isn't quite valuable enough to be a candidate for the Packers' franchise tag.
