Shields wants to test the FA market

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Packers CB Sam Shields wants to test the free agent market this offseason. In 2013, Shields was solid for the Pack, intercepting 4 passes while collecting a career high 61 tackles in just 14 games. 

Recently, it has been reported by multiple sources that Shields and Green Bay were negotiating a new deal, although I think it's obvious now that those talks didn't go too well. I mean, Shields leaving the team obviously isn't guaranteed, but you'd think that he'd be saying something else here had he actually been given an offer that he liked.

Wonder how much interest Shields will get.

I think he'll get a lot of interest. He's so close to free agency now that it doesn't hurt him at all to test the waters. My question is whether any team would go over $6 million per year for him?
