Shields, 29, suffered a concussion in the season opener against the Jaguars and missed the final 15 regular-season games and the team's three playoff contests. It was Shields' fifth documented concussion in his NFL career and Packers coach Mike McCarthy said at the postseason news conference last month that Shields still had not cleared concussion protocol.
