Beanie Wells was looking for another 1,000+ rushing yard season for the Arizona Cardinals last season after rushing for 1,047 yards in 2011, but that didn’t happen.
Instead of rushing for a thousand yards, Wells struggled. He only played in eight games for the Cardinals last season while picking up 234 rushing yards on 88 carries but had five touchdowns.
The Ohio State Buckeye alumni was released by the Cardinals during the off-season and has yet to be picked up.
But the light at the end of the tunnel could be closer than Wells has expected as the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens put him through a workout.
Now this doesn’t mean the Ravens are going to sign him right away, but it shows Wells that he is being considered an option. Ray Rice has struggled to get things going this season as he’s only rushed for 242 yards on 86 carries through Baltimore’s first six games.
Wells has 2,471 rushing yards on 625 carries and 24 touchdowns through 51 games played in four seasons.
It’s a bit of a surprise that Michael Turner hasn’t received any contact from teams who are looking to add some depth at the half-back slot on their depth chart.
