According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Packers have signed offensive lineman Jahri Evans.
Evans, 33, spent the last 11 seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
Before being released in February, Shields spent all seven National Football League seasons in Green Bay.
Heading into the draft, the Packers now have a replacement for T.J. Lang who sighed with the Detroit Lions in free agency.
In no particular order, the Packers need a No. 1 cornerback, pass-rushing outside linebacker, power running back and a right guard.
In 11 seasons with the Saints, he started all 169 games he played in during the regular season and all 10 postseason contests he appeared in.

Dellin Betances worked a flawless eighth and Aroldis Chapman got three outs for his fifth save despite giving up a run. NY right-hander Luis Severino fired seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, against the Red Sox .

Though the Packers signed ninth-year pro Ricky Jean Francois, formerly of the Washington Redskins, they still may want some more beef along the line.
No, Evans isn't a long-term answer, but he could potentially turn into a significant short-term one if he can elevate his level of play this season. One pick that would surely be popular around these parts would be Wisconsin outside linebacker T.J. Watt.
