It's been a slow few days for Rams fans as the initial burst of excitement over signing Cortland Finnegan has began to fade. However, Jim Thomas is now reporting that the Rams have made their second move in free agency: signing former Packer center Scott Wells to a contract. The details of the contract have not yet been released.

This move shores up the position that was opened when the Rams released Jason Brown. Wells is a 31 year old veteran who started 96 games for the Packers. He also made the Pro Bowl in 2011.

The Packers had the 8th best line last year (Mid/Guard) in Adjusted Line Yards from Football Outsiders, which puts value to how much run blocking offensive lineman provide. He was also #95 on PFT's Top 100 Free Agents.

UPDATE: According to Tony Softli, the Rams have confirmed the signing.
