RB Chris Wells Has Dropped 18 Pounds

The Cards official site reports that RB Chris Wells has dropped 18 pounds:

Wells was at 247 pounds when strength and conditioning coach John Lott got hold of him; Wells has shed 18 pounds (Lott had guesstimated earlier this offseason Wells’ playing weight would be around 225 pounds). Lott, who spent years training Curtis Martin in New York, sees Beanie as the potentially perfect blend of power and speed – someone who can break long runs, a bonus the Cards simply haven’t had much of from running backs of recent vintage. “I made a promise to (Larry) Fitzgerald, a promise to Kenny (Whisenhunt), a promise to players interested,” Lott said of his interest in seeing Beanie break out. “I think this kid has a chance to do something. He’s got the tools. … He could be a beast.”
