The deadline for NFL teams to tag franchise or transition players has passed with no news from the Packers organization. While there's a chance the Packers could have tagged a player but not officially announced it yet, it looks like the Packers will not be tagging anyone.
The Packers and Shields had been working on a contract prior to the deadline, but after talks broke down, it was believed that Shields would test the free agency market. The Packers have exclusive negotiating rights with Shields until March 8. The NFL league year officially begins on March 11.
