JSOnline is saying it's six years for $24 million, but I think they are in error.

JSOnline said:
Update: According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the deal is worth $24 million over six years with $13 million guaranteed.

Wells to St. Louis, Clifton a big ?, prob done, Sherrod a ?,

I hope ted has a plan, (sure he does), as of right now, A. Rodgers may be running for his life.

Wells for 6 mil a year, IMHO Ted should have been able to match that.

Oh well, time to sit back and see what developes.

This is reminding me of the Seattle team Ted Thompson and Holmgrem built in Seattle, they did good until their big name players started wanting big contracts and were let go elsewhere. Get ready folks it is starting already. I will admit Ted Thompson is good at building a team thru the draft but he is unproven on building a dynasty.

The Wells signing remind anyone of Jenkins' signing last year?

Last year everyone echoed the Packer party line that they couldn't afford to afford to overpay for Jenkins. And Jenkins ended up signing with Philly with a deal that was nowhere near "breaking the bank."

Now this year, the Packers again want to avoid overpaying Wells. And he signs for a deal which isn't particularly rich by 2012 standards for interior linemen.

Sometimes I think Ted tries to make too extra good a deal, and misses opportunities as a result.

I for one is glad Ted didnt pay out 6 mill a year for Wells, I dont think he is worth that kinda of money and overpaying is a sign of desperation, we would most likely be able to get a servicable rookie center in rounds 3-5. There is still decent talent on the Center free agent market, though they all have questions, bring one in cheap short term and let them fight the draft choice for a starter spot.

The Kendall deal is also more that I would have expected Ted to pay out, but would have liked him as a rotational guy at maybe 3 mill a year.

It's starting already? Why didn't it start when guys like Jennings, Jordy, Sitton, and Tramon needed contracts?

I'm still convinced that what went wrong in 2011 was we lost Cullen Jenkins and got nobody to replace him.

Yeah. Neal played 7 games and got 0 sacks.

Wow. I just noticed the Jenkins in 11 games last year got more sacks than our entire DL combined in 2012. No pressure from the DL killed our D.

I know you're asking Hazer, but I'll reply with that Pats guy (I think it's Kraft). He built the last one.

Right now, our biggest threat are the Giants. Their D kicks ass. The stats are misleading because they're injury prone and always seem to get healthy in time for the Playoffs. Their D was superb last year, but rated as average because of injuries. Once they got healthy, they started dominating. So that Giants guy too.
