Shields: New Contract "Just the Beginning"

Following the signing of his new 4-year, $39 million contract this offseason, it has been speculated by some that Packers CB Sam Shields will change.

He apparently doesn't think so.

"Like I tell everybody, it's just the beginning," Shields recently told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Lori Nickel. "I'm going to continue to work my butt off and make plays. Hopefully down the line, get another one, you know? This is just the beginning."

On the final play of last year's Week 17 win in Chicago, Shields picked off a Jay Cutler Hail Mary, officially clinching the Packers a playoff spot. It wasn't necessarily a difficult play to make, although it definitely illustrated the veteran's ability to perform in the clutch, something needed on a contending team.
