Report: Wells, Packers Look to Part Ways
Per a report from Bob McGin of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Green Bay Packers and center Scott Wells seem far apart on his value to the organization. Apparently, the team has informed Wells they do not agree on his perception of his value to the team. Wells has not forgotten the demotion the Packers put him through after three years at center for Jason Spitz in 2009 or how they cut him after his first training camp. Pro Football Focus graded Wells out as the fourth highest ranked center in 2011, and two-year contract paying him $3.5-$4M a year is reasonable. A seventh round pick by the Packers out of the University of Tennessee in 2004, Wells has played his entire career with the Packers. He was elected to the Pro Bowl in 2011 and was a member of the 2010 Packers who went on to win Super Bowl XLV.
