That awkward moment when you don't know how to react after hearing the news that your favorite football team is signing basketball players.

Doesn't matter if they sign 800 guys, if he's not good enough, you cut him.

former basketball players like gates and graham had at least one year of college football (I think).

The reason why we signed him for 3 years is because we wanted to teach him how to play football/be a tight end for the first part of the contract.

Just another amazing example how PC/JS find talent that so many others dont because the others are locked into their dogma.

I bet he turns into a great TE.

In BBall he has to find seperation and have good hands.

This FO is amazing at finding the talent in the world that is going to make them great for years and years.

Yes I know I am ahead of myself and he may be a bust but I have a sneaking suspision that we will look back on this day in a year from now and smile.

Look it is simply to understand what happened. Every pre-season camp they play an internal basketball tournament with bragging rights to the winner. So Schneider gets to pick first and decided to stack the deck a little bit........

Gates never played college football, which is crazy considering his success in the league.

If there is a player under a rock in a cave behind a frozen waterfall in the farthest reaches of Antarctica-- he fits our system, Schneider will find him.

I :bow: to John Schneider!

Hey, that's no joke. Look at Drew Brees. He had Gates in SD and then Graham in NO. Coincidence? I think not. Leave no rock unturned. I wish I could get more info on his workout today. It must have been very impressive. GoHawks!!! :th2thumbs:

As a half Argentinean, I can't tell you how hyped I got when I saw the title of this thread? Gotta say, I'm a little let down to see that it's some dude named Fells and not some future bust/trout out/stiff named Lopez Hernandez.

I'm sure this guy will be a beast, but zany, likeable, bound to be nothing special, foreigner is one area this team is still sorely lacking in.

So now we have a former baseball player RW and a basket ball player now. Are we looking at some soccer players too, now wait they don't catch the ball, they just kick it, may be a kicker:)

Gotta Love this team and FO.
Darren's signing is just another latest in the High risk=High rewards moves. He looks a big strong player who catches balls above the rim. This guy increases our height and toughness on offense immediately but will benefit from playing next to our pro-bowl TE Miller.
I drool at the thought of our two tight end sets featuring sure-handed Miller and the 6-7 athletic freak Fells.

By the way RW did play basketball in highschool. I can see many lobs from RW to Fells both on grass and hardwood :179422:

This is why I love our front office. Everyone is studying up for the draft, and we are finding guys that play basketball in Argentina. The crazy thing is that we have hit several home runs with this plan. They know exactly what skill they need and go get it. Even if it's not the prototypical skill set, they find something and a way to utilize it. It's a page out of the Major League featuring Charlie Sheen and Tom Beringer play book.

He's got 3 years to make an impression so other possibilities for this signing include: Fells as a 6-7 280 lbs TE/OT. Simply convert him to a DE if he's as quick and strong as he looks. Or simply hike the ball to RW who jumps onto Fells shoulders immediately increasing his height to roughly 10 feet at QB.

No details on the monetary value of his contract yet but giving a guy 3-year contract without an official workout, exam AND for someone who has never played football beyond highschool? His contract may be small but he is nevertheless a project that could take away opportunities from proven FA out there. But you guys are right.. This risk is very calculated and not that high of a risk.

Kiper will point out he's still actually 9' 11 3/4".

Not sure why, but I dig this signing. I just do, even though I realize its a longshot and I know NOTHING of the dude. I dont even know his hoops game.

WTF? Its going to be a LONG offseason.

I bet he turns into a great TE.

In BBall he has to find seperation and have good hands.

This FO is amazing at finding the talent in the world that is going to make them great for years and years.


Don't forget about his clairvoyant powers...

I seeee........I see a big TE.........playing hoops......in Argentina....PETE GET THE HAWKWING READY!

He's got 3 years to make an impression so other possibilities for this signing include: Fells as a 6-7 280 lbs TE/OT. Simply convert him to a DE if he's as quick and strong as he looks. Or simply hike the ball to RW who jumps onto Fells shoulders immediately increasing his height to roughly 10 feet at QB.

Kiper will point out he's still actually 9' 11 3/4".


Uh, you mean 9' 11" and 6/8...right? :P

If he has trouble catching the ball we could always convert him over to CB.

Well my hunch we plan on targeting a TE early could be effected by this. But I think this only provesthe fact they are wanting to upgrade our offense with some large targets. 6'3+ WR's 6'6+ TE's and give Wilson some more weapons.
