Updating an earlier report, free-agent RB Beanie Wells (Achilles') tore his Achilles' in his recent workout with the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Tough break for Wells, as the way running backs are dropping due to injury he was bound to wind up on an NFL roster this season. It's likely good news, however, that the injury happened during a workout with a team as there's bound to be some sort of compensation or injury settlement.

The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't close to a deal with free-agent RB Beanie Wells.
Huddle Up: This may be the best (non) move the Jaguars have made thus far this offseason. Stay hot, Jacksonville!

The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to work out free-agent RB Beanie Wells (Cardinals) Thursday, June 6.
Huddle Up: The Jags could use another RB option with the contract and off-field uncertainty surrounding starter Maurice Jones-Drew, but the injury-prone Wells would bring his own baggage after missing 13 games during his final 3 seasons with the Cards.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have checked on the health of free-agent RB Beanie Wells (Cardinals).
Huddle Up: This could turn out to be a swap of recently injured RBs as the Cards signed Steelers' FA Rashard Mendenhall earlier in March.

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells is excited for the 2013 season with the recent hiring of Bruce Arians as head coach. Wells expects a better relationship with his new head coach; he often did not see eye-to-eye with former head coach Ken Whisenhunt. "We definitely had our fair share of disagreements this season, and I've never been in a situation like that before," Wells said.
Huddle Up: Apparently Whisenhunt wasn't a fan of oft-injured backs who struggled to average three yards a carry. Maybe Arians has a soft spot for that sort of back, or maybe Arizona will upgrade its offensive line to give Beanie a little more room to run. Don't hold your breath on either account, however, especially after Arians lit up at the mention of Wells' positional competition, Ryan Williams.

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells dressed for the Week 17 game against the San Francisco 49ers, but he never left the sideline. Earlier in the week, Wells had said he was going to be "auditioning" for 31 other teams in Week 17, and said he expected to be released or traded in the offseason.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals likely did Beanie a favor; NFL teams already have plenty of tape of Wells... three yards at a time.

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells said he believes his days with the Cardinals are numbered and will be using Week 17 as an audition for other teams.
Huddle Up: Good luck Beanie as you draw what's sure to be a fired-up 49ers' defense -- one of the league's best against the run -- in a game San Fran needs to win to have a shot at the NFC's No. 2 seed.

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 14, and is probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: After coming back strong from his IR stint with a 2-TD, 48-yard performance in Week 12, Wells has fallen victim to the overall Arizona offensive malaise with a combined 40 yards on 21 carries over the past 2 games. Fantasy owners are advised to steer clear in Week 15 unless you're in the most desperate of circumstances.
