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.
Think Shields is closer to $9.75m/yr, with the more money in the 3rd and 4th year, but i may be wrong.

As for Monroe, i think it's the latter. His agent must know that he can drive a harder bargain after the Ravens only just gave up those draft picks to get his client last season.
