Seattle’s general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll have gained a reputation as not being afraid to sign a player if they think he can help the team, even if they find him in an unusual place. They did it again Tuesday.

NFL.com is reporting that the Seahawks have signed Darren Fells to a contract.

Fells, 26,  is a former professional basketball player on the international circuit. This past year he played in Argentina, and has also played in Mexico, France, Finland and Belgium. He played college hoops at U.C. Irvine, where he was a .530-shooting forward and graduated in 2008. He hasn’t played football since high school.

Fells worked out for the Seahawks on Tuesday, and showed enough that Seattle signed him to a three year deal.

Here’s the impressive part: Fells is 6-foot-7 and weighs 280 pounds. If he can catch the football, he could be a very large target for quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense.
