    Wells did seem to lack heart when it came to playing through injury. But, he runs with authority. I wouldn't mind having him on the roster as long as you are not looking for him to be the primary back.

    Bells has been neither productive nor healthy. I'll pass.

    Not sure I can completely agree. When healthy Wells is a 4+ yards per carry back with a nack for finding the endzone.

    Well he "Reeks" of a Steeler FA signing. Wouldn't hurt the Comp picks because he was cut. (Part of the "Steeler Type") He had some injuries but none significant. Wake up call? Would be nice for the Steelers to benefit from that.

    2 years younger than Mendy. In 4 years, 625/2,471 24 TDs. By season avg compared to Mendy...very similiar. Mendy is 173/709 6 TDs & Wells is 156/618 6 TDs. Low risk incentive deal...Why not? The backfield would be better and removes the need to draft one early. They could focus on a "change up" later. Redman will be 29 this year so having two 24 year olds & a rookie is a good start.
    2017 Draft:
    1st Njoku TE
    2nd Rivers or Willis OLB
    3a Davis ILB
    3b Witherspoon or Griffin CB
    4th Dobbs QB
    5th Conner RB
    6th Nicholson S
    7th Ebukam OLB

    And? Considering I have seen most of his games in college, and have followed his career in the pros...it makes me more qualified than most to evaluate his talent which IMO is evident. I'm the first to bust on a Buckeye when I dont like their play...ie Mike Adams.

    Was establishing the perspective.. I think it also makes you biased.. ask me if I want Michael Bush...

    Beanie was a STUD in college. He's been "average" in the pros. We already have a couple of average RBs on the roster. He wouldn't be a horrible add. But, you'd want "better than what we have" - i think he's on par with what we have...

    his college production inflated his value AND expectations. For what the Steelers would need him for, i think he's worth a look.

    I'm not sure what his health has been like in specific seasons, other than that he is rarely healthy. Below 4 YPC in 2 of 4 seasons:

    AZ seemed like they had seen more than enough of Wells, especially with the drafting of Ryan Williams in the second.
