    Looks like we need a center. At least it's a decent draft for them.

    Has he signed with a new team? He hasn't left until that happens.

    What does that mean? That you have inside info that the Packers will make no attempt to re-sign him?

    You're being very vague.

    I'm saying he has a deal in place and the packers know it.

    I have no idea what the packers plans are for replacement. I'm sure if the price is right FA would be logical but it seems like deep draft for centers. Then again I'm not a scout.

    Bill Huber apparently hinted that he's already gone, but we don't know anything yet.

    Dan Koppen could be a good replacement. He's a little on the older side but he's still one of the better centers in the league. I really don't want to begin the season with a rookie center. And I really don't want us to waste our first rounder on a center

    It's said he "Chose his new team," and that a deal would be announced shortly after free agency opened. I imagine we'll find out sometime tonight.

    Whatever. He is not someone I would over pay for. If someone will then so be it.

    Yeah, I saw that, too. But the Titans are the only team I've seen linked to Wells so far. It doesn't really mean much, but if he's already chosen a team, maybe it's them.

    Please TT if Wells leaves go sign Chris Myers, we need a solid line and him being better and younger (all be it only a year) would be worth the free agency pick-up. He was the center for a team that made TJ Yates look like a top 15 QB at points and had TWO crazy good RB. He is worth the money.

    Well, Packers now have holes at OC, DE, OLB, and SS, especially if Nick Collins is done. And counting on Raji and Pickett to anchor our defensive line is like counting on plastic wrap in the wind.

    We might be able to fill a couple of those holes in the draft and draft a few more as projects, but things aren't looking good right now for the Packers. I'm sure TT will draft the BPAs but if that's all he does, Packers may be taking a step back.

    I believe Wells is from Spring Hill Tennessee. and he played college ball there. So it maks sense. I wouldn't Myers. Why invest huge capital in a center? Most decent centres in the NHL are low round draft picks. Draft Molk from Michigan, we EDS, and maybe sign a guy like Todd McClure, old vet, similar size as Wells, from the Falcons zone scheme, would be cheap.

    Can you translate this into English and then re-post it?

    A step back could still be 14-2 - The key components of our team are Elite
