Noah Fant wants to show the Broncos they screwed up selling him

In an interview with FanSided, new Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant says revenge games are real and that he wants to prove the Denver Broncos wrong for trading him.

Some eventful trades took place during the NFL offseason. One of the first was the deal that saw Seattle Seahawks Trade quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. Part of the return for Seattle was tight end Noah Fant, the former 20th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. It won’t be long before Fant plays his former team because that’s taking place in Week 1 on September 12th.

In conversation with fan side On the Stacking the Box podcast, Fant spoke about the trade and the early revenge game that got him drafted. He said that ultimately he wants to prove himself the Broncos they were wrong to walk away from him.

Noah Fant wants to prove Broncos wrong in trading him

“Of course I want to make a really good game,” said Fant. “I want to beat them, I want to be able to hold that over my former teammates and really close friends that I have in the Broncos, I’m going to hold that over their heads. I’m looking forward to the game. I can go up against guys I know, guys I love, who are my brothers, and hopefully be able to make a statement and say, ‘Hey, you should have kept me’ or something like that.”

This offseason, the Broncos were keen to bring in a top quarterback option after finding none following Peyton Manning’s retirement after Super Bowl 50. In fact, the team made an offer that Seattle liked and agreed to the trade.

In addition to Fant, the Seahawks also added quarterback Drew Lock and defenseman Shelby Harris to the deal. In addition, they received two first-round picks (2022 and 2023), two second-round picks (2022 and 2023), and a 2022 fifth-round pick.

Fant was one of the top picks for the NFL draft emerging from the 2019 Iowa Hawkeyes football program, and the Broncos drafted him after a first-round trade-down with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Since joining the team, he has started in almost every game for Denver.

In 47 games (41 starts), Fant caught 170 of 249 goals for 1,905 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Fant will be ready to face off against his former team in the opening week of the 2022 season. The question remains who will be the starting quarterback. Will it be Lock, Geno Smith or possibly another option? We’ll find out as the season approaches.
