Packers release Duke Preston; keep Scott Wells
The Green Bay Packers have released center Duke Preston, thus reducing the chances that former starting center Scott Wells will be traded.
There have been some trade rumors in the past week about Wells, who lost his starting job on Monday night to Jason Spitz.
Wells started 42 games at center in the last three seasons. And he sounded surprised about the demotion, saying he reported to training camp in better shape than ever.
