    Steelers interested in RB Beanie Wells

    Bengals, Steelers interested in Beanie Wells

    MAR 12
    By Jamison Hensley | ESPN.com

    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.

    Just what we need: A RB who is constantly injured and never once looked like he lived up to his potential. I smell PEDs with this one. Stay away.

    I may have my Scarlet and Gray glasses on, but I'd love to see Beanie in the Black and Gold. There's a lot of upside if (and that's a big if) he can stay healthy and his price tag should be cap friendly.

    Warning: PEDs likely. Excessive size + power + always injured = juice.

    Do you have first hand experience with this phenomena? Or did you read it on bodybuilding.com's forums?

    Go for a RB like Mike Goodson or someone that sat behind a stud and is looking for his breakout chance over an injury prone RB.

    NOOOOO! Why would the Steelers want this guy? He hasn't done anything since he's been in the NFL!
