Green Bay center Scott Wells didn’t want to wait for his franchise’s Super Bowl ring ceremony to see some of his teammates this offseason.
Wells and his agent (Brian Parker of Rep 1 Sports Group) helped organize three days of workouts this week with seven of his fellow offensive linemen in Franklin, Tenn.
Two other starters from last year’s championship team — left tackle Chad Clifton and right guard Josh Sitton — as well as veterans Mark Tauscher and T.J. Lang were among the players who attended. Because of the NFL lockout, this marked the first time Green Bay’s linemen had fraternized since defeating Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLV.
“A couple of guys had called me and I think were stressed out over the offseason uncertainty and not seeing each other,” Wells told FOXSports.com on Wednesday after a workout under trainer Judd Granzow at M.A.D. Sports Training. “They expressed that they wanted to get together, do some football drills and talk shop.
“It’s been tough. You’re used to seeing the same guys every day. Now, you don’t see them and don’t know when you’re going to see them again.”
