CB Sam Shields to hit Free Agency

Having Hardy play as a one year rental under the franchise tag would about be the worst case scenario. I'd rather see him walk and us get a comp pick instead of that.

It is smart if it gives us time to get another deal done. Not so smart if he plays under the rag abd we have $30m tied up in our starting de's

That's my fear but I'm hoping a deal can be reached.

Hardy and Gettleman have handicapped us from building a complete team. Gettleman is to DEs as Hurney is to RBs. Hopefully Gettleman can get it done before the season begins, but at the moment I'm cautious of him. I've seen this story play out before not in the team's favor overall many many times in the past.

Do you not understand the value of two stud DEs compared to running backs? Common man its not even in the same ballpark. DEs are worth the money. RBs are dime a dozen DEs aren't!

Gentleman isn't stupid. He wouldn't want the tag on hardy if he did not care for him to be on the team in the future. I'm 90% sure the tag is basically a place holder to work out a long term deal this season. And those who don't understand why we are investing in a great pass rush, smh! These aren't running backs

Unless he's a Revis or Sherman, that's bullcrap. You do realize The Packers have a crappy pass rush, right? I don't know why fans look at a solid corner like Shields and assume he's mediocre just because his DL can't pressure opposing QBs. It's really simple. If your team has a below average rush, your corners and safeties are gonna appear worse than they are in reality.

We needed a way to keep Hardy while we get to a point where we can dump a, or both RB's. Hardy isn't the problem. DLo and Stewart are.

All he did was tag one DE. How does that compare to what Hurney did with RBs?

@RapSheet: Packers trying to give him Tim Jennings deal (< $6M per) RT @PriscoCBS: Watching Sam Shields, I think he’s going to get paid big time.

End thread.

I don't want him not only because I believe he's overrated, but more importantly we don't have the money to keep our own guys much less an overpriced CB

Damn, good for him then if it happens. I'd love for him to be a Panther but the truth is we just can't afford him as it stands right now unless Hardy is dealt. He outplayed Tramon Williams this past year when they were both healthy, he does get burned on rare occasions but he is very solid.
