On Monday, the Cardinals cut running back Beanie Wells. As soon as Tuesday, running back LaRod Stephens-Howling could be signing with a new team.
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the offer made to Stephens-Howling last week “wasn’t close” to the player’s expectations.
A seventh-round pick in 2009, Stephens-Howling has thrived in Arizona as a return specialist, a third-down tailback, and a special-teams coverage age.
The departure of Wells and Stephens-Howling means that Ryan Williams will be installed, for now, at the top of the depth chart.
That could change if/when the Cardinals ink Reggie Bush. As we’ve been writing for the past week or so, the Cards and the Lions are the top candidates to land Bush.
