Sam Shields to remain with Packers through 2013

Since Packers CB Sam Shields didn't receive any offer sheets from other teams by yesterday's 3:00 pm CT deadline, Shields will be staying in Green Bay for another year. In his three year career(all with Packers), Shields has 9 interceptions, 1 sack, and 102 tackles. Those stats seem good enough to keep him. That's the good thing about Shields, he'll definitely contribute somehow.

This year, the Packers will be paying Shields approx. 490,000 dollars. So at least he's not too much of a financial burden. I have no idea why they didn't want to keep him in the first place.
