Beanie Wells showed promise as a rookie in 2009, but his stats in 2010 were a significant drop off.
Wells had 793 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie, but he had only 397 yards and two touchdowns last season, as well as a dismal 3.4 yards per carry average.
He also missed three games in 2010 due to injury.
Don’t let his drop off in 2010 fool you, as he’s still a very capable back. Last year, the entire Arizona offense was trying to adapt to life without quarterback Kurt Warner, who left the team for retirement.
The Cardinals have not solved their quarterback issue yet, but the initial shock of losing Warner is gone, and Wells will likely get back on track at some point.
