NFL roster moves: Arizona Cardinals bring back Kerry Taylor, sign TE to practice squad

Otto Greule Jr

The practice squad is full once more.

The Arizona Cardinals filled out their practice squad once again on Wednesday when they made a pair of transactions. They brought back receiver Kerry Taylor to the eight-man practice squad and also added tight end Darren Fells.

Taylor began the season on the practice squad, but was elevated when Larry Fitzgerald was suffering from a hamstring injury. He was released on Tuesday when Brittan Golden, another receiver, was elevated to the 53-man roster. He had three receptions for 40 yards on the season, all of which came in a Cardinals win against the Detroit Lions.

Fells (6-7, 281) spent the preseason with Seattle after signing with the team on March 6, but was released by the Seahawks in the team's final roster cut on August 31. A former basketball player at UC Irvine from 2004-08, Fells played in 123 games and averaged 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. He played professional basketball in Belgium, Finland and Argentina prior to joining the Seahawks. Fells is the younger brother of New England Patriots tight end, Daniel Fells.

This seems to be a trend in the NFL with the tight end position. Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates also have a basketball background. Perhaps they are looking to find another player like that, especially in light of the lack of production from the position this season.
