Cardinals part ways with Beanie Wells

The Arizona Cardinals have decided to part ways with former first round draft pick Beanie Wells.

It might have been surprising to some since Wells rushed for over 1,000 two years ago, but only played half of last season. When you think about it, it's not a surprise since it seemed that Wells was always hurt or playing hurt. He was limited last year due to a toe injury and has battled knee problems throughout his career.

Just been informed that I'll be released today. Would like to thank the Cardinals organization for give me a chance to live out my Dreams, said Wells from his Twitter account. 

He seems grateful for the opportunity and is looking forward to another chance. Wells will have to show he can over come his injuries before another team gives him a shot, but he is a big back with somewhat limited mileage, so someone may kick the tires on him.
