    This article on jsonline makes it sound like a done deal (Also a good read):

    Green Bay may have pulled a fast one in signing Shields - JSOnline

    Well if he is added to the official depth chart he will make the 17th S/CB. Not sure what we are going to do with all these guys.

    I don't want to make any gaurantees on this guy either. Sure he runs a 4.3 40 yard dash but he did say that he hasn't much experience as a returner. He is a great gunner though, pretty sure he could unload Bush from the roster.

    Ehhh I wouldn't go that far. Could happen though. It is encouraging to see all the positive news about Shields. Hopefully he is signed, or at least close to it.

    That report said he signed. I think he could make a solid addition. A special teams stud status could get him a roster spot. Good defensive coaching could teach him the ropes about being a corner. The other report said it was new to him. A tough, super fast player who likes making tackles is fine with me. A tough, super fast player who likes making tackles and learns how to play corner is even better.
