Giants' Roster Breakdown: Daniel Fells, TE

US PRESSWIRE

Does veteran tight end Daniel Fells have a chance to stick with the Giants?

The New York Giants report for training camp on July 21, a little over a month from now. Between now and then we have been breaking down the 90-man roster the team will bring to camp. Today, let's get to know tight end Daniel Fells.

2013 Season In Review

Daniel Fells spent last training camp with the New England Patriots, but was waived on the team's final cut-down day when it appeared Rob Gronkowski was ready to return to action. The 30-year-old was not signed by any other team and last saw game action in 2012 for the Patriots, hauling in four receptions for 85 yards. Fells' most successful season came in 2010 when he caught 41 passes for 391 yards and two touchdowns for the St. Louis Rams. He started six games. Fells has 92 receptions over five seasons, the most of any of the Giants' tight ends.

2014 Season Outlook

Fells is getting a good look as the position is wide open for the taking. Throughout OTAs, a different tight end saw reps with the first team each practice. Presently, the Giants have five tight ends on the roster, likely fighting for three spots. The 6-foot-4, 252-pound Fells would appear to be competing primarily with Kellen Davis for the role of blocking tight end. It will be hard to judge that competition until training camp when players have shells or pads on and contact is allowed.
