Rashard Mendenhall: Teaming up with former Pittsburgh Steelers coordinator Bruce Arians, Mendenhall agreed to a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals. He will compete with Ryan Williams for the Cardinals' starting job while seeking to rehabilitate his value for another run at free agency in 2014. Mendenhall previously had visited the Denver Broncos and reportedly drew interest from the Falcons, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.
Beanie Wells: After visiting the Bengals last Tuesday, Wells will explore other options, Yahoo! Sports reported. Currently without a starting running back, the Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to pass on Wells after Friday's visit. A league source tells the Post-Gazette that Beanie has a "bad wheel."
Mike Goodson: Although injury-prone with ball-security issues, Goodson drew surprisingly strong interest early in free agency after averaging a gaudy 6.3 yards per on 43 carries last season. Darren McFadden's 2012 backup has now agreed to a three-year, $6.9 million contract as Shonn Greene's replacement on the New York Jets.
Michael Turner: Tumbleweeds.
