FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - By all accounts Beanie Wells had a successful rookie season for the Cardinals rushing for over 700 yards and seven touchdowns.  Preparing now for his second year, Wells has arrived in Flagstaff leaner, stronger, faster and oozing with confidence.

This is a far cry from his turbulent rookie campaign when a homesick Wells struggled with life off the field in the NFL. 

Tonight in a 3TV Sports exclusive, Wells and Coach Ken Whisenhunt tell the story of the day Whisenhunt sent Wells home to Ohio right in the middle of the 2009 season and how that unorthodox decision proved to be a seminal moment for the running back's startling play the second half of his rookie season.
