The Green Bay Packers have given center Scott Wells a multi-year contract extension. Wells signed a 5-year deal with the Packers on Monday.
The 25 year old Wells was entering the final year of a three-year contract that he signed after being selected in the 7th round of the 2004 draft. By signing Wells now, the Packers, with more than $7-million of salary cap room, can count some of the contract against the 2006 salary cap.
The Packers have until next Monday to apply new contract money to their 2006 cap and could still get some additional deals done. Running back Ahman Green and tight end David Martin are both players that are unrestricted free agents at the end of the season and have performed well.
