The Seahawks’ experiment with Darren Fells was a short one.
The team has waived the former professional basketball player who was attempting to make it in the NFL as a tight end, a move first reported by Brian McIntyre of Yahoo! Sports and later announced by the team. The Seahawks signed Fells in March.
Seattle selected a tight end in the fifth round of last month’s draft, adding Luke Wilson to a group that includes last year’s starter Zach Miller and backup Anthony McCoy. Sean McGrath and Cooper Helfet are the other tight ends on Seattle’s roster.
The 6-foot-7 Fells has played professional basketball overseas. He’s the younger brother of NFL tight end Daniel Fells.
