Cardinals Release RB Beanie Wells

The Cards are going in a different direction at the running back spot, as today the team released RB Beanie Wells.

Wells was due a roster bonus of $1.3 this spring and scheduled to make $1.157 million in salary.

A first-round pick in 2009, Wells never lived up to expectations. Over four years, he played in 51 games (23 starts) and gained 2,471 yards and scored 24 touchdowns.

He was hampered by injuries for much of those four seasons, starting with a high ankle sprain suffered in his first training camp practice as a rookie.

Wells played in eight games last season, including seven starts. Former coach Ken Whisenhunt didn’t play Wells in the season finale, which came days after Wells questioned his future with the organization.

Cardinals officials were not available for comment. Via twitter, Wells wrote “the best has yet to come?”
