ST. LOUIS (AP) When Jeff Fisher took the Tennessee Titans to the Super Bowl in 1999, Scott Wells was a Nashville high school player.
Wells was a Fisher fan then, and during eight NFL seasons the respect has grown. The new Rams new coach was a big enough draw in free agency that the Pro Bowl center left the Green Bay Packers to join the rebuilding effort in St. Louis. The Packers were 15-1 last year, five more wins than the Rams' total the last three seasons.
"Green Bay was definitely a player and that was a tough decision," Wells said Monday. "But in the end I feel like St. Louis is the best fit for me right now. I think coach Fisher is going to step in and do an outstanding job."
The 31-year-old Wells several times cited his respect and belief in Fisher, adding that he's received glowing reviews from several players who've played for Fisher. Wells has signed a four-year contract for a reported 24 million with 13 million guaranteed.
