Cardinals release RB Beanie Wells

The cuts just keep on coming.

The Arizona Cardinals announced Monday they have released running back Beanie Wells.

The move comes as a bit of a shock but not all that big of a surprise, as Wells had a very rocky four years in the desert.

Taken with the 31st pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, Wells showed promise as a rookie when he rushed for 793 yards and seven touchdowns. After a down 2010, Wells ran for 1,047 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011, but his production dropped in 2012 in large part due to injuries and ineffectiveness.

He played in just eight games, rushing for 234 yards and five touchdowns.
