The Seattle Seahawks have signed former professional basketball player Darren Fells to a three-year deal, according to a source involved in the process.
Fells is a 6-foot-7, 280-pound tight end who worked out for the Seahawks on Tuesday. Fells was slated to have a pro day, yet he impressed people within the Seahawks' organization enough to warrant a contract offer without one.
He spent the past year playing basketball for Libertad Sunchales in Argentina. He also has played professional hoops in Mexico, France, Finland and Belgium.
