Wells emerges as Titans' top OL target

While the Titans have talked to Chris Myers, Scott Wells has emerged as the team’s primary target in patching its interior offensive line.

Wells is from Nashville, Tenn., went to Brentwood Academy in the city and played at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

He’s a free agent who was part of Green Bay’s Super Bowl team two years ago. He should come cheaper than Myers, but signing him won’t come with the additional benefit of denting the rival Houston Texans.

“Myers is the better player -- and in his prime -- but Wells is a top-seven or eight center in this league, too, and also fits the Titans’ scheme,” said Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. “They really need interior line help. Wells is a tough guy that Mike Munchak will love.

"Houston can’t let that offensive line, which was the best in the league, fall apart. I’m not feeling what Houston is up to overall.”

The Texans cut right tackle Eric Winston and now risk losing Myers and Mike Brisiel in free agency.

They surely are hoping the Titans can land Wells, leaving Myers alone; not that other suitors won't emerge.
