TE Darren Fells expected to sign with Browns

The Browns are getting bigger, stronger and more experienced at tight end.

The Browns will sign Lions tight end Darren Fells to a three-year, $12 million deal, a league source confirmed to The Chronicle-Telegram on Tuesday morning.

Free agency officially starts at 4 p.m.

Fells (6-foot-7, 281 pounds) has started 37 of 54 games in three seasons with Arizona and last year with Detroit.


He’s more of a blocker, with 57 catches for 713 yards and seven touchdowns in his career. In his season with the Lions, he had 17 catches for 177 yards and three touchdowns.

Fells, who will turn 32 on April 22, joins David Njoku and Seth DeValve in the tight end room. Njoku was the No. 29 pick in 2017 and DeValve a fourth-rounder in 2016. Their strength is receiving rather than blocking.
