With some injury issues along the offensive line, the Green Bay Packers have added a veteran who can play guard or tackle.

The Packers have announced the signing of Reggie Wells, a nine-year veteran who has played for the Cardinals, Eagles, and Panthers.

A full-time starter from 2004 through 2009, Wells has played sparingly the past two years.  He has started 79 games at left guard, 10 at right tackle, and two at left tackle.

The Packers also placed guard James Brooks on the reserve/physically unable to perform list and sent tackle Mike McCabe to injured reserve.

To fill the other roster spot created by the moves, the Packers claimed receiver Andy Brewer off waivers from the Eagles.  Brewer had been signed by Philly after the season-ending ankle dislocation suffered by receiver Ron Johnson.
