Fells was a fairly useful piece for the Giants in 2014, functioning at a high level as a blocking tight end while Larry Donnell got much of the glory as a receiver. But Fells also helped out when the ball was thrown to him, catching four touchdown passes.
This is a quality re-sign by the Giants, who have been relatively quiet and unexciting so far in free agency. Their defense obviously continues to need major help, though they appear to be hoping that the return from injury of players like Prince Amukamara, Jon Beason and Robert Ayers will provide that help (and that maybe they can find some in the draft). But on offense, they liked the strides they made in 2014, and bringing back Fells, who was a quiet part of it, isn't a bad way to go.
