Seahawks sign player who never played college football

A former pro basketball player who never played college football has a chance to make an NFL roster.

The Seattle Seahawks signed Darren Fells, who is the younger brother of New England Patriots tight end Daniel Fells, to a three-year deal, the team confirmed Tuesday.

Fells, 26, played his college hoops at Cal-Irvine and recently played pro basketball for Libertad Sunchales in  Argentina. Fells was supposed to have a Pro Day to showcase his skills, but the Seahawks were impressed enough to offer him a contract.

According to the Everett Herald, the 6-foot-7, 280-pound Fells has played hoops overseas in Belgium, Finland, France, Mexico. Fells' UC Irvine bio said he was an all-state tight end at Fullerton High School in California.

Here is Fells showing his skills on the basketball court.
