The Green Bay Packers would like Wells back, but it apears general manager Ted Thompson is going to follow the same route he took last year with receiver James Jones. Jones hit free agency, talked with a few times but eventually returned to Green Bay when the market dried up.
With Wells, that appears highly unlikely. Wells is coming off the best three years of his career, capped by a Super Bowl championship in 2010 and his first Pro Bowl in 2011.
In fact, a separate source said Wells already has picked his new team. We’re not allowed to say who that team is, only that a deal will be struck quickly after free agency begins.
The Packers have reportedly shown interest in Texans’ free agent center Chris Meyers. Bob McGinn recently reported that a Packers representative met with Meyers’ agent Drew Rosenhaus at the Scouting Combine last month.
