It feels like just yesterday that Chris “Beanie” Wells donned the scarlet and gray of THE Ohio State University. It also feels like just yesterday that Wells was signed to DeBartolo Sports. But back in October 2010, Wells switched from DeBartolo to Drew Rosenhaus of Rosenhaus Sports Representation (RSR). At the time, it seemed like quite a trend; many players were leaving DeBartolo in favor of RSR.
Fast forward a year and a few months, and Wells is making another change. He has recently dropped RSR and signed with Sean Howard of Octagon Football.
The former 1st round pick under-performed in his first 2 years in the NFL, but then had almost as many yards in 2011 as he amassed in 2009 and 2010 combined. 2011 could prove to have been very important for Wells, because he was given a chance to get a lot of carries after the Arizona Cardinals’ second round pick, Ryan Williams, ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee, and sat out the entire 2011 season.
