Guard T.J. Lang Wants Scott Wells Back with the Team in 2012

With Scott Wells scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March, the Packers reportedly met with the agent for Texans center Chris Myers, who will also be an unrestricted free agent.

Count Packers guard T.J. Lang among those who hopes Wells stays with the team, writes Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

“He’s really a role model for the other guys,” Lang said of Wells. “He has shown us the right way to go about our business. If it happens, I think it’d be a huge loss for our offense. It’d definitely be a big loss to our whole offensive line group.”

Wells, 31, has started 100 of 111 games over the last eight seasons and earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl following the 2011 season.

“I don’t think people really understand how difficult it is to play center in our offense,” Lang said, “with the amount of information they need from knowing the play, getting up to the line, recognizing the defense, calling out the line calls. And on top of that, snapping it and blocking a guy. It’s tough.”

Myers, 30, began his career with the Denver Broncos before he was traded to the Texans as a restricted free agent in 2008. Myers is also coming off his first Pro Bowl. Younger options at center for the Packers include University of Wisconsin center Peter Konz, who is projected to come off the board right around the time the Packers make the 28th pick in the draft.

    Scott Wells. Pro Bowl…This was a reward to the Packers offensive line for the Pack having a phenomenal offense in 2011. I like drafting the center from Wisconsin if he’s available. Wells is not the future and has never been more than an average center. He is a below average center on run blocking. Let him move on…and good luck with his next team.
