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.

The brother of New England Patriots tight end Daniel Fells, Darren Fells played college basketball at University of California, Irvine.
