    Already knows the offense, and I guess that McDaniels already knows him. Seems like a solid back-up/depth signing.

    Good signing! I hope he stays with the team. We could really use a 3rd TE in case Arron or Gronk go down.

    Fells was the starting TE for the Denver Broncos.

    He doesn't know the offense. Despite playing for each of McDaniels last 2 teams, they were in the wrong order. Was with the Rams in 2010 when McDaniels was with Broncos and was with the Broncos in 2011 when McDaniels was with the Rams.

    Pinch me, is this all real... lets see Gronk, Hernandez, Welker, Lloyd, Gonsalves and now Fells... this is real good and we are reloading again. Oops forgot about #85....

    Nice that the Pats can manage the cap so effectively, and take this opportunity to make this team better on paper..

    All of a sudden splitting Hernandez out wide helps the receiver position.

    I think this means we will see ahern playing more receiver than te...this guy is a other pass catcher so it gives brady another option.

    Will we focus mainly on defense in the draft?

    In typical Belichick fashion, he is filling needs on both sides of the ball so that he can take the best players on their board in the draft.

    Bostonherald.com: The 28-year-old UC Davis product may be to the Patriots what veteran Alge Crumpler was in 2009, a blocker and pass-catcher.

    Thank goodness for that insight from the Herald.

    Good move. The guy is a pretty good #2 TE and a spectacular #3 TE.

    The offense is pretty much done other than depth filling. The rest of free agency and the draft will likely focus on defense.
