The Green Bay Packers have re-signed CB Sam Shields. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Monday.

He joined the Packers as non-drafted free agent out of the University of Miami in 2010 and has appeared in 53 games with 35 starts during his four seasons with the club. For his career, Shields has posted 165 tackles (138 solo), 64 passes defensed, 13 interceptions, one forced fumble and one sack.
