Jaguars to work out Beanie Wells Thursday, according to report


The Jaguars will work out Beanie Wells on Thursday and could sign him to help fill out the depth chart while Maurice Jones-Drew continues to rehab his foot.

Beanie Wells will work out for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. With Maurice Jones-Drew out for the team until training camp while rehabbing a foot injury, Wells could give the Jags some much needed depth as they prepare for the 2013 season.

Wells was released by the Arizona Cardinals in May after four injury plagued and largely ineffective seasons. In 2012, Wells appeared in just eight games and averaged 2.7 yards per carry behind a tattered offensive line. He is just 24 years old and has a lot of NFL mileage left if his balky knee can hold up.

The Jaguars have made a concerted effort to add depth behind Jones-Drew this offseason. Justin Forsett is currently slotted as the No. 2 running back, with rookie Denard Robinson providing a very intriguing and potentially electric change of pace out of the offensive backfield. Wells would be another player with high upside, and a likely low-risk contract coming off a tumultuous stint in Arizona.
