Thompson "would like" to have Sam Shields back

For the second time in a week, a major man in the Packers Organization has come out saying that he wants a soon-to-be free agent back. 

“Sam (Shields) is one of the fellas we’d like to have back,” Packers GM Ted Thompson recently said in an article on Packers.com.
You may remember Head Coach Mike McCarthy saying something similar to that about B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett last week, so yea, I'm not sure I can trust what Thompson's saying here. I mean, he might actually wanna keep Shields, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't just say this kinda stuff about everybody.

That might be considered an enthusiastic comment by Thompson, who's not exactly known for saying much at all.

I think the distinction is that I've heard about negotiations they've had with Shields, while I haven't heard about any with either Raji or Pickett.
