Former Packers CB Sam Shields signed by Rams

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Rams have signed former Packers cornerback Sam Shields. Shields saw his Green Bay career end after a concussion sustained in the 2016 season opener. The corner suffered a slew of head injuries in his latter years with the Packers. He never returned to the field in 2016 after a concussion sustained making a seemingly-routine tackle in Jacksonville in Week 1 of that season.

Prior to his concussions, Shields was a productive corner in Green Bay. He was best known for his knack for making postseason interceptions and his fleet feet. He had 18 interceptions in 7 seasons with Green Bay.
