According to the Florida Times-Union, nothing is imminent between the Jaguars and free agent running back Beanie Wells after Thursday’s workout.
Visiting with Wells should be viewed more as the Jaguars doing their homework instead of concern over the availability of Maurice Jones-Drew (still rehabilitating from foot surgery) and the lack of experience at the position. The Jaguars have six tailbacks under contract.
Wells has his own red flags. Still only 24 years old, he has career totals of 51 games (23 starts), 625 carries, 2,471 yards and 24 touchdowns. But he averaged only 2.7 yards per carry last year and was deemed expendable by new Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, who preferred Ryan Williams.
Well has been an effective player at times, but can’t seem to stay healthy.
