The Lions recently brought Fells in for a visit and were in the market for a tight end, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Fells, 30, originally signed on with the Seahawks back in 2013. He spent just a few months in Seattle before he was waived at the start of the 2013 season. The Cardinals later signed him to their practice before bringing him back on a future/reserve contract in January of 2014.
Arizona elected to re-sign Fells to a one-year deal last year.
In 2016, Fells appeared in 14 games for the Cardinals and caught 14 passes for 154 yards receiving and one touchdown.
