Default steelers-interested-in-beanie-wells

Former Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has drawn interest from the Steelers and Bengals, a source told ESPN.com.

The Steelers are looking for a featured back, but they don't have much salary-cap room to spend on a high-profile one. The Bengals are looking to add another running back to go with BenJarvus Green-Ellis, although it was assumed they would pursue a more explosive runner.

Wells, 24, a first-round pick in 2009, was cut by the Cardinals on Monday. He fell out of favor in Arizona because he couldn't stay healthy.

Wells' power running style would seem to suit the Steelers, who are expected to let Rashard Mendenhall go elsewhere in free agency. That leaves the Steelers with an underwhelming group of Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and Baron Batch.

In 2011, his best season in the NFL, Wells rushed for 1,047 yards and 10 touchdowns. Last season, he was limited to eight games due to a turf toe injury and was benched in late December.

In his four-year NFL career, Wells has averaged 4.0 yards per carry and has only three 100-yard rushing games.

Why can't we get a fucking burner for once? Do we really need three power backs in one backfield? Don't get me wrong, I really like Wells, hope he starts over the other two, but let's get a speed guy to complement him.

I like Wells but would like to see us pick up Tavon Austin in the draft as the WR/RB/PR playmaker that we need.

Not sure Wells is any better than Mendy.

It doesn't even say we're interested in him, it's just pointing out the glaringly obvious that we need a Running Back. We also need a Safety, are we interested in getting Ed Reed? This is the kind of stuff I don't pay attention to.

you mean like willie parker?

steelerfans hate backs like willie parker or barry sanders who get stopped for no gain or 1 yard then bust one for 8.

I'll pass. We got enough injury prone players already.
