  • Lions' Darren Fells: Signs one-year deal with Lions
    By RotoWire Staff

    Fells will sign a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Lions, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports. A good blocking tight end, Fells will join the Lions after being non-tendered by the Cardinals this offseason. Eric Ebron will play ahead of him and presents a better and more effective pass-catching option. However, Fells could receive a boost in fantasy value should the injury bug bite Ebron again and is joining a pass-heavy Lions offense that could make him an option in deep leagues and a flier in daily lineups.

  • Darren Fells: Visiting Detroit
    By RotoWire Staff

    Fells, who didn't receive a restricted free-agent tender from the Cardinals, will meet with the Lions on Friday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. The Cardinals put their eggs in Jermaine Gresham's basket with Tuesday's four-year contract, seemingly spelling the end of Fells' three-year run in Arizona. Although Eric Ebron is the Lions' No. 1 tight end, depth is lacking at the position after the team opted to move on from reserves Tim Wright (knee), Matthew Mulligan, and Clay Harbor. If Fells indeed lands a deal with Detroit, he could serve as Ebron's primary backup in his age-31 season.

  • Fells is not expected to receive a restricted free agent tender, Kyle Odegard of AZCardinals.com reports. Fells will turn 31 in April and is coming off a 2016 season in which he only caught 14 passes for 154 yards while taking a clear back seat to Jermaine Gresham. With 2014 second-round selection Troy Niklas also in the mix, Arizona isn't willing to give Fells a one-year, $1.8 million RFA tender, instead allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent.

  • Fells reeled in 14 of 18 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown in 14 games during the 2016 season. In Weeks 2 through 4, Fells led the TE group in Arizona in terms of offensive snaps. However, a stringer in the latter contest sidelined Fells with a Thursday outing on tap, allowing Jermaine Gresham to stake a claim to the starting spot. Gresham received a plurality of the workload thereafter, deviating below 77 percent of the snaps on offense just once over the final 12 contests of the year. Considering Fells' age (he turns 31 years old in April) and Gresham's pass-catching acumen, the Cardinals may carry on with the latter as the No. 1 tight end, despite his status as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. Fells is a restricted free agent himself, but a tandem of Gresham and 2014 second-round selection Troy Niklas (wrist) could very well be the breakdown at the top of the group in 2017.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Fells (ankle) was removed from the Cardinals' injury report and will suit up Sunday against the 49ers. Fells was limited in practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but return in full capacity Friday. He projects to assume his usual role as the Cardinals' No. 2 tight end behind Jermaine Gresham.
