According to sources, cornerback Sam Shields re-signed with the Green Bay Packers on a $39 million, four-year deal that includes a $12.5 million signing bonus, and pay per head sportsbooks believe that the team made a very good move in signing the player.
One source said that over the first three seasons, Shields will earn $30 million – $15 million in the first year, $6 million in the second, and $9 million in the third.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that last season he emerged as Green Bay’s top cover cornerback while playing for the restricted free-agent $2.023 million offer.
Shields, who played as a receiver at Miami for most of his college career, tied his career high with four interceptions made in 14 games, which include a game-changing pick with the team’s win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 15, in a game that pay per head sportsbooks remember very well.
The former undrafted free agent who’s very well known with pay per head sportsbooks, and who was once seen as only a speed corner, became a very well-rounded player who often got the task of covering the opponent’s best receiver.
News of the deal was announced on Twitter by Drew Rosenhaus, Shields’ agent, and fans everywhere were very hear happy to learn that the player will join the team again.
