    Do we let him walk and try to draft Konz at #28?

    Pass rush is already a big need. We should keep him.

    Length of contract will be pretty important with Wells. He's 31. A 4-year contract would be ok, but he and his agent may very well try to push for a 6-year contract because he knows that this contract will probably be his last.

    they'll keep him, 4-5 year contract.

    I doubt they'll go after Konz unless they get a high draft pick from a trade...

    No way we let him go. Not just because he's a great player and we need him, but we have more important issues to address in this draft than taking a Center with our first pick when our defense is utter crap.

    If we have to waste our precious, only premium pick on replacing an offensive linemen, instead of addressing our serious needs (hello pass-rush?), then I will be pissed off and that will be bad for our team.

    That is unless Teddy utilizes a cute little tool called FREE AGENCY and brings in DE Adam Carriker and OLB Manny Lawson, and/or OLB Jerry Hughes.
    All of these guys were 1st round picks, and all of them are still well under 30 years old. They all would be immediate upgrades to our anemic defense, especially pass rush.

    Wells is no spring chicken. You can draft a rookie and get better value then Wells. Remember it's a business.

    If they don't bring Wells back and don't sign a FA center, I personally would not draft Konz in the first round. You could probably get Mike Brewster in the 3rd or 4th round or David Molk in the 4th-6th round. I saw today that Mayock likes Philip Blake from Baylor who's projected around the 4th round. The talent drop-off from Konz to these other centers seems to me like it's a lot smaller than the drop-off in other positions. That being said, if Konz is our first round pick, I'm certainly not going to complain. I'm just forming a little bit of a draft strategy should TT call me for some advice during the draft.

    You could but the ROOKIE would be a big drop off. Letting Wells go is a huge mistake. U keep him & give him a 5 yr deal & the Packers put an option in there where they can either pick up or decline his 5th yr.
