The Shields/Grimes deals are certainly gonna set the market for corners like Talib. Sherman will surely look for Revis money next year...

Grimes with a guaranteed average of $16m over two years, Shields (I think) $21 over two years. Which given their respective ages/upsides, is fairly similar. Talib's age somewhere in the two, and has proven more than Shields at this point, probably means he's gonna get $12m per season I'd expect.

Regarding Monroe, Ravens surely didn't part with the picks unless they thought they could resign him. That they haven't (yet) means either they don't think he's as good as they thought he was or that he's not as valuable as Monroe rates himself.
