Fantasy Impact:

Shields is the second long-time veteran Packers player to be released in the past 24 hours -- the team also cut James Starks Tuesday. Shields, who played seven seasons in Green Bay, only appeared in one game in 2016. He suffered a concussion in Week 1 and missed the remainder of the year as a result. He'll likely be signed by a new club this offseason if and when he is granted medial clearance to resume football activities.
