From ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky:
While the Titans have talked to Chris Myers, Scott Wells has emerged as the team’s primary target in patching their interior offensive line.
Wells is from Nashville, went to Brentwood Academy in the city and played at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
He’s a free agent who was part of Green Bay’s Super Bowl team two years ago. He should come cheaper than Myers, but signing him won’t come with the additional benefit of denting the rival Houston Texans.
As Tom Silverstein points out, Well would most likely love to finish out his career in Tennessee.
From a Packers perspective, the situation is similar to what the club went through with Chad Clifton and James Jones when the offensive lineman and receiver each hit free agency. Both times the Packers let the player hit the open market and let him find out what the interest was for their services, with Clifton going so far as to visit the Washington Redskins and have an offer on the table before coming back to the Packers.
The difference here, of course, is that Wells apparently holds more than a bit of a grudge for the way he was treated by the organization along the road to becoming a Pro Bowl player. Obviously, every Packers fan remembers how the club tried to replace him with Jason Spitz a few years ago. Wells responded by having his three finest seasons as a pro, each one better than the last, to the point where he was clearly the team’s best offensive lineman last year.
And now, it would appear he has a good chance to be a Tennessee Titan in the near future.
