Hi everyone. Paddy here from over at Arrowhead Pride. We recently came across the news that the Pack may be interested in trading Scott Wells. The Chiefs are desperate for O-Lineman after our weakness in that area was exposed against the Vikings last week. We traded a draft pick to Miami for a couple of guards yesterday, however we aren't sure if they are the answer.
“To be honest with you, it was a very tough decision,” McCarthy told reporters. “I mean, Scott Wells has graded out at a very high level. Scott’s probably one of our top three or four linemen as far as grading out in the preseason.”
Onviously this sounds very good for a team looking for a lineman. We have a particular weakness at Center and Right Tackle.
What do you guys think of Scott Wells? He is only 28 and it sounds like McCarthy thinks he is a solid player. The worry here is that this is just trade bait talk. I come to to you folks (Pack fans are great in my book. Passionate, respectful and not jack asses *cough* Denver* cough*Pittsburgh*) for advice. Can Scott Wells still play? Would the Chiefs be wise or foolish to trade for him? What is his value?
Thanks guys and stop by Arrowhead Pride anytime!
