Just a few short days after creating a slew of questions in fans' minds at the tight end position in New England, the Patriots seem to be ready to begin answering some of those questions.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, they are on the verge of signing a deal that would bring ex-Rams tight end Daniel Fells to Foxborough.

Fells had his most productive season as a professional last year, grabbing 21 balls for 273 yards and three touchdowns in his second season with the Rams after signing with them as an undrafted free agent.

After coming to the pros from UC Davis, Fells was originally signed by the Falcons but then was cut and signed with the Rams.

It's certainly nice to see that there is seemingly a plan and an answer to some of the questions created in the last few days in Foxborough.

While ex-Patriot TE Ben Watson is touring the league's facilities (he's scheduled to visit the Browns on Wednesday) and Chris Baker is looking for a job, we'd be happy to at least have a tight end on the roster who has played a down of professional football. He's not signed yet, but when he is later on today or later in the week, now you know who he is.
