The Titans are hosting C Scott Wells for a free agent visit.
Wells is 34 years old, incredibly injury plagued, and was Pro Football Focus' No. 41-rated center among 41 qualifiers last season. Maybe he could join Hakeem Nicks, Anthony Fasano, and Shonn Greene in providing "veteran leadership"? Mon, Jun 1, 2015 04:46:00 PM

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, there has been "organizational conjecture" at Rams Park about re-signing free agent C Scott Wells.

Heh. Wells was abominably bad last year and is 34 years old. It's a reminder that the Rams remain weak on the offensive line, even after devoting several draft picks to the position. Center has become the team's most-glaring hole.

Rams released C Scott Wells.

Wells was a massive free-agent bust after signing a four-year, $24 million deal with the Rams prior to the 2012 season. He was oft-injured and a huge liability when on the field, grading out as Pro Football Focus' worst center last season. The Rams could be looking for three new starters on the offensive line.

Rams C Scott Wells is due a $1 million roster bonus on March 12.

Old, injury riddled, and ineffective on the field, Wells is a prime release candidate. He's also due $1 million in per-game roster bonuses and a $2 million base salary. The Rams do not have a starting center in waiting, but Wells' release should be a formality. He turned 34 in January.

Rams C Scott Wells was forced from Week 8 against the Chiefs with an elbow injury.

Wells had previously played every offensive snap this season. His loss may be a positive for the Rams, as Wells is PFF's worst center. Second-year OL Barrett Jones is in at center for the Rams.

Rams C Scott Wells has restructured his contract.

Entering the third year of a four-year deal, Wells' 2014 base salary has been reduced from $5.5 million to $1 million. He'll get some of that money back in the form of a $1.65 million roster bonus and $850,000 in per-game roster bonuses. The restructure is a firm sign the Rams have penciled Wells in as their starting center for one more year, ahead of sophomore Barrett Jones.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports "indications are that" the Rams will retain C Scott Wells for the 2014 season.

Wells counts $6.5 million against the cap, and the Rams could save $4.5 million by releasing him. But with none of the Rams' five offensive line positions settled, it would be wise to keep the 33-year-old around as a stabilizing presence. Wells fractured his fibula in December but will be fine for camp.

Rams C Scott Wells is in danger of being a salary cap casualty.

St. Louis' four-year, $24 million deal with Wells in 2012 has proven a predictable bust, as Wells has been oft-injured and struggled when healthy, particularly as a run blocker. Wells turned 33 three days ago and is owed a $5.5 million base salary for 2014. His 2013 season ended on injured reserve with a fractured fibula. The Rams do not have a viable in-house replacement.

Rams placed C Scott Wells on injured reserve with a fractured fibula, ending his season.

Wells broke his leg in Week 13. He was given a 3-4 week timetable for recovery. The Rams are shutting him down after being officially eliminated from the playoffs last week. Tim Barnes will handle center duties. OG Brandon Washington was promoted from the practice squad to take Wells' roster spot.

Rams C Scott Wells fractured his fibula in the first half of Sunday's game against the 49ers and will likely miss the rest of the season.

Wells was initially ruled out with an ankle injury. Tim Barnes replaced him to start the second half and will handle the duties for the season's remainder. Wells, 33 next month, started the first 12 games this season, but he'll end up missing 13-of-32 games since signing a four-year, $24 million contract two offseasons ago. He and his $5.5 million salary are candidates to be released in March.

The Rams' offensive line served up 26 sacks over the first ten games last year, but just nine in the six contests after C Scott Wells' return to the lineup.

Wells battled numerous injuries in '12 and had his knee scoped in January. He's fully participating in camp. "I feel great now and I’m really excited about this season," he said. From left to right, St. Louis' starting line looks like this: LT Jake Long, LG Chris Williams, C Wells, RG Harvey Dahl, RT Rodger Saffold.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said at the Combine that C Scott Wells is doing "fine" in his recovery from right knee surgery.

Wells had surgery on the same knee in June of 2012 and January of 2013, which is concerning for a 32-year-old football player. Fisher expects Wells to be ready for training camp in late July. St. Louis badly needs a healthy Wells.
Fri, Feb 22, 2013 06:36:00 PM

Rams C Scott Wells underwent another right knee scope earlier this month, his second since last June.

The latest scope repaired torn cartilage. Wells suffered the setback just as he was returning from foot surgery in November, so he's undergone three separate surgeries in a seven-month span. Now 32, Wells struggled mightily as a run blocker in just seven starts in 2012. The Rams hope he'll be back by OTAs.

Rams activated C Scott Wells (foot) from injured reserve designated for return.

Wells broke his foot in Week 1 against the Lions and has been out ever since. After signing a four-year, $24 million deal in the offseason, Wells has been off the field far more than he's been on it. The pedestrian veteran Robert Turner has been starting in his place since Week 2 and has struggled with his run blocking. Wells, 32 in January, should be a major upgrade.
Mon, Nov 19, 2012 06:55:00 PM

Rams C Scott Wells (broken foot, I.R./designated for return) was not activated for Week 10 against the 49ers.

Wells was originally expected to return this week, but multiple team sources tell Pro Football Weekly that he won't be cleared until Week 12. The Rams will continue to start career-backup Robert Turner in his absence. Wells, currently on injured reserve, has resumed practicing on a limited basis.
