A former pro basketball player who never played college football has landed a job in the NFL.

And he didn’t even have to pay $275 to get there.

Darren Fells, the younger brother of Patriots tight end Daniel Fells, has signed a three-year deal with the Seahawks. The team has confirmed the news, first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Fells played college basketball at Cal-Irvine, and pro basketball in Argentina.

It’s a no-risk proposition for the Seahawks, who have shown a willingness to take chances. And who have had their chances pay off.
