The Seahawks have exercised the 5th year option on TE Noah Fant

So, who is the Seahawks newly acquired TE Noah Fant?

Noah Fant, 24, played college football for the Iowa Hawkeyes, and was drafted by the Denver #Broncos in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. This off-season, Noah Fant was included in a package deal for former Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. This trade included QB Drew Lock, so it seems that Lock and Fant will be connecting yet again but on a new team. During his tenure in Denver, Fant compiled 170 receptions for 1,905 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has a solid catch rate of 68.3% on his career and is a big bodied receiving tight end.

Noah Fant never really reached his full potential in Denver, but did have a career best season in 2021 with 68 catches for 670 yards, and 4 touchdowns. The Broncos finally landed a top tier QB in Russell Wilson but shipped off Noah Fant in return, so it looks as if Seattle is now in search for their next franchise QB, and Fant might continue to see lackluster QB play.
