The way we hear it, negotiations between the Packers and unrestricted free-agent C Scott Wells really aren't going all that well. After another solid season, word is the 31-year-old Wells is looking for a contract that will pay him roughly $7.5 million annually. Meanwhile, the Packers are looking at a maximum annual salary of about $5 million. While the team is hoping Wells eventually might be willing to come down in price if the market falls short of what he's looking for, the odds are growing that the Packers will work the free-agent market for a new starting center, with as many as nine 2011 starting centers having become UFAs. "We'll figure it out," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told PFW at the Combine. "I'm still hopeful we can work something out from a business standpoint, but if not, we'll just have to go in another direction. There are different scenarios we're exploring."
