Ugh. Read here from Bob McGinn. I think Scott Wells is important to this team. He is a reliable veteran who is healthy. And his age (31) doesn’t seem to be an issue considering he has gotten better each of the last 3 years as McGinn points out. He made the Pro Bowl last year. He is a good player and my hope is that the Packers can figure something out with him. I think he deserves a pretty high offer from the Packers – and I’m sure Aaron Rodgers is saying the same thing. Centers are important to teams, especially teams that get as involved in dissecting defenses at the line of scrimmage like the Packers do.
Another reason I’d like for Wells to get paid is that we should minimize the O-Line shuffling we do – especially at center. To the extent that we can control it, I think it should be a goal to return the same or a mostly similar starting O-Line next year.
