Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for cornerback Sam Shields, is meeting face to face with Green Bay Packers officials on Monday in order to get a deal done in time for him to participate in this week’s minicamp, an NFL source told Press-Gazette Media. Shields, a fourth-year pro, is a restricted free agent. He was tendered at the second-round rate, meaning if he plays this season for the tender he would make $2.02 million. However, Rosenhaus is believed to be seeking a long-term deal for Shields, who played in 12 games (including playoffs) last season and was the team’s best cover corner. No other teams signed Shields to an offer sheet before the April 19 deadline, meaning the Packers hold exclusive negotiating rights with him.
