Cardinals TE Darren Fells played a season-high 47 snaps in Thursday night's Week 15 win over the Rams.
Fells has played 92 snaps the past two weeks after being in on 57 total plays the previous 12 games. The Cardinals are said to be "really excited about the future" with Fells. Of those 92 snaps the past two weeks, Fells has been asked to block on 72 of them. He's been targeted just four times, catching one ball for six yards. Fells (6-foot-7, 281) is a former basketball player and the brother of Giants TE Daniel Fells. Darren will turn 29 next April. Coach Bruce Arians' offense doesn't feature the position, so Fells doesn't bring any real fantasy upside. Dec 12 - 10:56 AM

Seahawks re-signed TE Darren Fells.

Fells was waived 12 days ago, but the Seahawks are bringing the former basketball player back for one more look-see. Fells is 6-foot-7 and 280 pounds.

Seahawks waived TE Darren Fells.

Daniel Fells' brother, Darren is a 27-year-old former basketball player. The Seahawks liked his 6-foot-7, 280-pound frame, but he lasted less than two months on the roster. He's unlikely to ever crack a regular-season roster.

The Seahawks initially worked out TE Darren Fells as a defensive end last week.

Seattle wasn't impressed with Fells at the position, so they had him run routes. They obviously liked what they saw out of the 6-foot-7, 280-pound former basketball player, and are reportedly anxious to get Fells in pads. Fells faces long odds, but coach Pete Carroll has never shied from a project.

Seahawks signed TE Darren Fells to a three-year contract.

Daniel Fells' brother, Darren has a basketball background, playing internationally since graduating from UC Irvine in 2008. He checks in at a mountainous 6-foot-7, 280 pounds. It's another unconventional signing for a team that's thrived on them, but Fells will be facing long odds of cracking the Seahawks' roster because of his lack of experience. He hasn't played football since high school.
