If the Steelers find a chronic knee problem that isn't a simple clean-out....I don't want him.
We just let one problem go in their eyes anyway, so instead of finding a solution They bring in another problem.
With our money issues we won't be able to sign a good FA back or one any better than we have so the draft is our best option imo.
Has everyone concocted a mutual head trauma injury on this board and in Pgh? Wells is garbage.
1.) He is always hurt.
2.) When he DID play last year, he racked up a 2.7 apc. That sucks.
3.) He sure smells of PED.
Yea, PED, you know me.

The stable we had last year is still here minus Mendy and it was? It is clear they need upgrades at RB and that number is at least +2. RBs in the draft are all over the board in hit and miss & round to production. They really need to get a RB here that has some type of NFL resume PLUS drafting one or two. It could be a Wells, a Bradshaw, a Phelix Jones....A body to compete. Given the cap situation...Bradshaw & Jones may be out of reach. Given what happened to Wells...He may be a good risk reward signee. He isn't going to get a big deal with limited to no gurnatees. You still draft a RB in the mid rounds. You let them battle through camp. Dwyer & Redman are on tenders. Redman will be 29. If Wells is beat out by Redman & Dwyer you cut him before the season starts. Makes alot of sense IF he has no chronic injury in that knee.
