    No way. We are trying to repair a broken locker room as it is. He may not be as caustic as he once was, but he also isn't nearly the play maker he was once either. He doesn't have much left, and his sometimes bad 'tude is exactly what the Steelers DON'T need right now. No reason to risk it.

    28 catches 22 first downs in 2012.

    If we want to value TOP and rest our precious defense, what's not to like?

    Beanie Wells' 'bad wheel' quashing Steelers signing?

    By Chris Wesseling
    Around the League Writer
    Published: March 15, 2013

    When the Arizona Cardinals released Beanie Wells last weekend, it was reportedly in part because they were not optimistic about the state of his right knee.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted Wells for a Friday visit, but a signing isn't likely to be forthcoming. One source tells the Post-Gazette that Wells was found to have a "bad wheel."

    Although Wells did miss lose half of the 2012 season to a turf toe injury, it's a good bet that the knee is the "wheel" in question.

    Still just 24 years old, Wells has plenty of time to salvage what has been a disappointing career since being drafted 31st overall in 2009. A signing may be on hold, though, until his troublesome knee shows signs of returning to full health later in the offseason.

    Meanwhile, the Steelers' backfield options are growing thin. The best back left on the market, Ahmad Bradshaw, has a bad wheel of his own following the latest round of foot surgery.

    Tailback appears to be a position general manager Kevin Colbert will have to address in the NFL draft.

    Good. Thank God the team was forced out of a "Duce Staley" kind of signing. The draft has some good backs. I still like Bell out of MSU a lot. Should be able to get him in the 3rd. That would be truly sweet.

    I am glad this signing didn't go down too. I think a RB drafted in the mid rounds has as much potential as a current Wells. I'm bummed we didn't sign Butler though, he probably wants to hear what his old DC Rob Ryan has to say in N.O.
