Beanie Wells visiting Jaguars, per report

Christian Petersen

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without Maurice Jones-Drew until training camp, as the running back is rehabbing a foor injury he dealt with in the 2012 season. The team added some running backs in free agency and in the draft, but they're still kicking the tires on some other backs, including former first-round pick Beanie Wells.

Wells was originally drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2009 NFL Draft, there were even some local writers who thought the Jaguars would consider him in the Top 10 that year.

Wells battled injuries during his tenure with the Cardinals, starting just 23 games and rushing for over 1,000 yards in a season just once.

It's a low risk investment if the Jaguars decide they want to sign the 24-year old, who likely would just command the veteran minimum.
