    The dude was a legend. I'm surprised ESPN hasn't devoted hours of coverage to this astonishing development.

  • Something tells me this isn't the last we've seen of Darren Fells. They'll waive somebody else in a few days, bring Fells back, waive him again, bring him back. It's called, getting the Donny Lisowski treatment.

    not sure why some folks on here feel TE is a weak/thin position, i personally think it's one of the positions that's pretty solid with Miller and McCoy being 1 and 2.. the others will fall in line where Pete and Bevell see fit.. the TE position is not a concern for me, i'm more concerned about how this new D line gels, and when Clem's is coming back...


    I agree, I think the TE position is solid with Miller and McCoy.

    if you look at Football Outsiders, McCoy actually ranks higher than Miller. I think McCoy is underrated on here. I think people only remember the bad Redskins drop (as well as the bad preseason drop) and assume he was a butterfingers last year. As far as I can tell he had very few drops last year. He ranked #22 in the league in "Catch Rate" with a 66.7% (Miller was ranked 8th with a 73.1%. McCoy also Ranked #1 in the league in yards/Target with an impressive 10.78 yards/ target ( Miller was 20th with a 7.62 yards/target).

    Overall I think these 2 are solid players. I think you add in a movable peice in Luke Willson and you've got a very dynamic TE spot.

    (Please note the first table is sorted by targets than by Catch Rate- thus it shows McCoy ranked #48 because he only had 27 targets. If you resort the table based solely on Catch rate you discover for his limited opportunities he did quite well.)

  • I like the idea of a burly 6'8" basketball player with hops and athletic ball skills man-upping our TE core. And his name is LeBron James. :P

  • According to John's interview on 710 today, Fells has been invited back to rookie camp this weekend for another tryout.

    Keep hope alive, Darren Fells super-fans!


    Oh heck yeah! I read the initial tweet and got the clarification on Twitter as an official member of the Darren Fells Illuminati. All non believers will repent when he makes the roster. 8-)
