Beanie Wells of Garfield and Ohio State released by Cardinals

By Ron Ledgard Published: March 11, 2013

The Arizona Cardinals released running back Beanie Wells today, the team announced.

Wells graduated from Garfield High School and played at Ohio State.

Here is the Associated Press story on the Cardinals' move:

The Arizona Cardinals have released running back Beanie Wells after four injury-plagued seasons.

A first-round pick in 2009, Wells showed flashes of the brilliance he had at Ohio State, but has only played one full season — his rookie year.

Wells eclipsed 1,000 yards and scored 10 touchdowns in 2011, but was limited to eight games last season due to a turf toe injury. He ran for 234 yards and eight touchdowns.
Wells has 2,471 yards and 24 touchdowns rushing, with 28 catches for 293 yards in 51 career games.


Arizona also released running back Fozzy Whittaker off its practice squad.
