Fells agreed to sign a three-year deal with the New England Patriots on March 19, 2012. On August 30, 2013 Fells was released.
On January 7, 2014, Fells was signed by the New York Giants.
On October 5, 2015, the Giants announced that Fells had been dealing with a chronic ankle condition, which was later discovered to be a staph infection, a discovery made after he had received a cortisone injection for his ankle injury. Specifically, it was found to be MRSA, which is resistant to many antibiotics that are used to treat staph infections. He has had six surgeries on his foot. Doctors do not want to amputate his foot, but they are afraid that the MRSA infection may have spread, or may spread, to the bone (osteomyelitis), or even the blood (sepsis), both of which could ultimately be fatal even with proper medical care. Fells had had a 104 degree F temperature upon his arrival on October 2, 2015, at the emergency room, where he had been taken by his wife. Due to the staph infection found in his ankle, he was placed on injured reserve. As of October 9, 2015, Fells' condition appeared to possibly be improving, as he was moved from the intensive care unit (ICU) to a private room. On July 26, 2016, Fells announced his retirement from the NFL.
