Cleveland is continuing its activity in the trade market.

A league source tells PFT the Browns are shopping tight end Darren Fells.

At 6-foot-7 and 270 pounds, Fells is primarily a blocking tight end and has 68 catches in his five-year NFL career.

The 32-year-old Fells played 38.5 percent of the Browns’ offensive snaps last year and 40 percent of their special teams plays. He is due $3 million this year.

  1. I can see Belichick poss interested, but he only gave a 5th in return for Michael Bennett & a 7th.

  2. They’re not going to get much for Fells. At best, they might get a player that another team planned to cut anyway. In terms of draft value, Fells isn’t worth much more than a swap of late round picks.

  3. Just see this sad story as another former Athlete with an addiction. Needs help, not rejection. Please people check yourselves. For the Grace of God…..

  4. @zugguy56, unless you have some inside info, I think you’re comment was posted on the wrong article.

    Fells is a solid blocking TE, who can be used effectively in certain passing situations. I was sad to see him leave Detroit last year.

  5. Been saying that John Dorsey is really interested in this TE class. Don’t be surprised if he surprises us with Noah Fant or TJ Hockenson with the 17. Foster Moreau and Kaden Smith probably impressed him at the combine, too.

  6. A tight end that blocks, but can’t catch? Send him to Green Bay; he can combine with block-phobic Jimmy Graham to make one complete tight end.

    Of course, they should also share the one salary they’ll earn.
