Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter expects to use more two tight end sets with Darren Fells.
"We're excited about Darren as a blocker and receiver. He's a really good blocking guy. He’ll get plenty of use," said Cooter. The Lions project for fewer three-wide sets with Anquan Boldin gone, but Fells isn't a threat to Eric Ebron's targets. Fells should upgrade Ameer Abdullah and Detroit's run game. Jul 8 - 5:11 PM
