    Fant-astic! Jets Sign OT Fant

    - Advertisement -

    The mission to #SaveSamDarnold has begun.

    After a sluggish start to free agency, the New York Jets made their first move, signing ex-Seahawks offensive tackle George Fant to a 3 year, $30-million dollar contract.

    Fant, 27, signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2016.

    The Western Kentucky graduate only played one year of college football – as a tight end. The other four years? Averaging 10+ points per game as a forward for the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers basketball team. When asked to play overseas for Poland, Fant chose to attempt a football career. He bulked up from 250 pounds to 296 pounds and learned the TE position from now-Los Angeles Ram standout Tyler Higbee.

    In 2019, Fant made eight starts, including a playoff start against the Eagles. He plays both left and right tackle. Fant will likely replace Kelvin Beachum on the offensive line.

    While the three big-ticket offensive tackles in Joe Thuney (franchise-tagged by NE), Jack Conklin (signed with CLE, 3Y/42M), and Graham Glasgow (signed with DEN, 4Y/44M) went off the board early, Douglas maintained composure and was able to snag a solid young OT in Fant.

    I’m going to close the article with something non-related to football. Please, wash your hands and stay inside unless necessary. That’s the only way we can flatten the curve of this pandemic. Thank you.
