  1. I have watched every game Seattle had played that last two seasons. He is not worth that contract.

  2. George Fant was always someone Seahawk fans thought could develop into a start. He is close to be solid but still has potentail at both tackle spots.

  3. Bummer to see him leave Seattle. While I understand him getting the best dollars he can I think the Jets got a steal at $30m. I’m kind of surprised the Seahawks weren’t willing to give that to him themselves. Fant can play either tackle spot and play them well. He is really very underrated. Maybe there is more to it than meets the eye.

  4. Not bad for a guy that made 7 starts. Guess it could of been 7 farts and the Jets would of paid him.

  5. Right Guard, Larry Warford on the Saints is on his final year of his contract. The Saints have .5M in cape space and they still need to sign Brees. This will require some major adjustment, cuts, and restructuring of exiting contracts. Perhaps the Seahawks can trade for Warford which would provide 12.875M in Cap Space. 8.5M in Cape Space is gained if he is waived with dead money of 4.375M in dead money.

    Seahawks can give a 5th or 6th pick in 2021 to help sweeten the deal.

  6. A fool and his money are soon parted. Jets said goodbye to a lot of money when they signed Le’Veon Bell. And they just gave a non-starting OL who did not even play football in college another pot of money.
