To the surprise of many, Daniel Fells has been seeing most of the first-team reps at tight end through two days of practice.
TE Daniel Fells gets first snap of 11 on 11 for second straight day. Very interesting #giants

The New York Giants are currently holding a position battle between a handful of players for the team’s starting tight end gig. Apparently Fells has done enough to garner first dibs.
It probably didn’t help Adrien Robinson that he had beefed up to 290 pounds before entering camp at 276. It was expected that he, not Fellas, would get the first crack at the starting tight end job this summer.
Meanwhile, Kellen Davis and Larry Donnell are questionable talents with the former being more of a blocking tight end. They’ll have to work to earn valuable reps early in camp.
In six NFL seasons, Fellas has 92 receptions for 1,086 yards (11.8 yards per catch) with eight touchdowns. He did not play a single down of pro football last season after being released by the New England Patriots during training camp.
