Right-o.... back on topic... Beanie Wells..
Chadman would be ok with this signing as it gives the Steelers a 1st round talent at 7th round talent prices. If they could rotate Wells & Dwyer, you might get decent 'powerback' play at great cap value.
Of course, it would completely negate the need to keep Redman.
And they'd still need a 3rd down/ change of pace type RB to be added.
But Chadman likes the idea of kicking the tyres of 'fallen 1st round picks'. It's not like they lost their talent.
Wells, Eben Britton & Darius Heyward-Bey are all young, relatively unwanted former 1st round talent players. For small contract numbers, what can it hurt to add them to the roster & see if they can evolve some of that talent?
Schiavone's Race Career:
random thought... it amazes me how crash can make activity triple by just showing up...
Go get Randy Moss. Play Moss/Plax/AB in a 3 wide base offense. Cotchery as #4.
Then draft PITT's Mike Shanahan as a TE in round #3 and groom him as Miller's eventual successor.
This isn't that hard to do. But I'm not working there.
I am not sold on Wells...If the Cards let him go, why in the world would we want him?
