On my phone, can't link, but I saw that the Packers put a 2nd rd tender on Sam Shields. He's a quality CB and would most likely immediately be our best CB. The biggest problem is that we'd have to offer a contract the Packers weren't willing to match. Contract aside, what would you guys think about spending our 2nd rd pick on him? I'm torn. I love the value in the 2nd this year, but Shields is a young, proven starting talent at a position of need.

He is good, but so are 2nd round corners.

We have some moneyz. About $7mil if I'm not mistaken. Wouldn't take all of that to get him. Would you be satisfied if he and our draft picks were our only acquisitions this year?

Here's the tough part (made even tougher when you have little cap room).

The Anderson space doesn't exist....not until June.

Yea, comes down to whether we want one of the good 2nd round prospects at WR, OL or S (that's where the value is in the 2nd in my opinion) or a young proven CB. I honestly couldn't say at the moment.

He's actually one of my favorite players in the league, but I wouldn't want to give up a 2nd rounder all things considered. He'd be an awesome addition but not the right deal for us atm.

Really great CB and becoming one of the top 5 CBs in the leauge but iirc the Packers run more of a zone coverage scheme and idk if tht'd be a fit
