Former Packers CB Sam Shields tells Michael Cohen of Packersnews.com that he’s hoping to resume his NFL career and sign with a team in time for the 2018 season, despite sitting out the majority of the past two years with concussion-related issues. “It’s going to feel great,” Shields said of his recovery. “You’re going to see the (number) 37 you remembered. Everything you seen in Green Bay, you’re going to see that wherever I’m at.” Shields says he believes he’s back to his normal self after dealing with serious concussion-related issues the past few years. “No, I don’t think so. I think I’m back to my normal self,” Shields said. “I can just take one day at a time and try to keep conditioning to get myself ready for whatever, March or April, whatever team picks me up so I can be ready to go.” It’s pretty hard for players to sit out a year and catch on with another team, but Shields doesn’t seem to think this will be an issue for him.
