MILWAUKEE -- With no end in sight for the NFL lockout, several Green Bay Packers offensive linemen are in Tennessee this week for group workouts.
"We all felt it would be a great opportunity to get together to work and talk football," Wells said. "It helps break up the offseason. Plus, its always good to spend time together as a group."
Wells said the sessions are being run by his trainer, Judd Granzow of M.A.D. Sports Training. The group chose Nashville because Wells and left tackle Chad Clifton live in the area during the offseason.
"A couple of the guys expressed a want to get together and see one another as well as work out together," Wells said. "I took the opportunity, since Chad Clifton and I live near Nashville, to have the guys come here."
NFL players are prohibited from working out at team facilities during the lockout.
Although contact between players and team officials generally is prohibited during the work stoppage, the Packers received clearance from the NFL to hold the ring ceremony even if the lockout remains in effect.
