Rams sign former Packers CB Sam Shields

Rams sign former Packers CB Sam Shields”

Los Angeles has been aggressive in reshaping the defensive unit, agreeing to deals to move a couple key players in defensive end/outside linebacker Robert Quinn and linebacker Alec Ogletree.

The comeback attempt of former Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields took a big step Thursday. After suffering his fourth known concussion while making a tackle against the Jaguars in Week 1 of the 2016 season, Shields was eventually placed on injured reserve.

Shields also posted this photo of himself signing the contract. But concussions have plagued Shields throughout his career.

He chose to sit out the entire 2017 season and recently declared that he was attempting to make a comeback.

The Rams need some help at cornerback with Trumaine Johnson and Nickell Robey-Coleman hitting free agency, as well as Kayvon Webster recovering from a torn Achilles suffered in December.

An undrafted free agent signed by the Packers in 2010, Shields played seven seasons in Green Bay before repeated concussions threatened to end his National Football League career following the 2016 season. In eight years, he's never played all 16 games in a season. His interception in the final seconds of the NFC Championship Game clinched Green Bay's spot in Super Bowl XLV, which they won.
