Here’s why we’ve been laughing at talk of DRC signing for $6.5M-7M per year

Packers re-sign CB Sam Shields

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed cornerback Sam Shields to a four-year, $39 million deal that includes a signing bonus of $12.5 million, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

A source told Schefter that Shields will earn $30 million over the first three seasons—$15 million in the first year, $6 million in the second year, and $9 million in the third year.

FWIW, Shields graded out at +0.4 last year, while DRC was good for a +12.9 grade from PFF. Any questions?
