The New England Patriots are looking to add a blocking tight end, and they may have found one.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Pats are closing in on a deal with free-agent tight end Daniel Fells.
Fells played in 14 games for the Rams last season, starting four. Although the 272-pounder is mostly known as a blocker, he did catch 21 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns last season.
The Patriots are also said to be interested in tight end Alge Crumpler.
