The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the deal was for four years and $24 million with $13 million guaranteed. Incentives could drive the worth of the deal up to $25.5 million.
Wells will give the Rams a veteran leader on their offensive line, continuing their offseason makeover under new coach Jeff Fisher. Wells' departure leaves the Packers searching for a replacement, which would likely come through free agency or the draft with no obvious candidate to replace Wells currently on the team's roster.
Wells has been the Packers' most consistent offensive lineman the past two seasons, and has played a critical role in dictating protections for Aaron Rodgers in one of the league's most productive offenses. Rodgers and Packers coach Mike McCarthy have routinely praised Wells' play in recent years.
