The Seahawks have waived tight end Darren Fells, the brother of Patriots tight end Daniel Fells and a one-time professional basketball player. The NFL disclosed the move in its Wednesday transactions.
Fells (6-7, 281) had stints as a professional basketball player in Argentina, Belgium and Finland and played college basketball at the University of California at Irvine from 2004 through 2008. The Seahawks signed him to a three-year deal in March.
The move leaves the Seahawks with five tight ends on the roster entering Friday’s rookie minicamp, with Zach Miller and Anthony McCoy the most experienced of the group.
