Packers need to keep Sam so he can grow with us. He has potential to be really great in a year or two :)

Props to MM for making the move, finally.

Shields had trouble catching the ball. That is not a concern for a kick returner, who has plenty of time to gather the football, and a kickoff is typically easier to catch than a punt. The concern for a kick returner is fumbling. That wasn’t Shields’ problem. Shields is the fastest player on the team and immediately gives the Packers a bonafide threat there.

I am fine with Tramon returning punts. It appears that he genuinely likes the role. Other teams have all had important players returning and been fine with it, see Minnesota, New Orleans, Chicago, etc. If they can all have key players returning punts, why not us?

I cant believe we still have one of our star CBs back there still…
