Free agent target No. 3 - Tight end Noah Fant

The Seahawks acquired tight end Noah Fant from the Denver Broncos as part of the Russell Wilson trade two years ago. He is now a free agent after starting each of the last two years for the Seahawks. Fant started every game for the Seahawks in 2023 at tight end and led all of Seattle's tight ends in receptions (32) and receiving yards (414). With the Seahawks letting go of Will Dissly, the Seahawks are going to need to at least re-sign one of their two pending free-agent tight ends.

Noah Fant and Colby Parkinson are both going to be free agents this off-season. The Seahawks are going to want to do everything they can to re-sign them this off-season. Both Fant and Parkinson are expected to earn about the same amount of money, according to Spotrac, Fant expects to earn a contract for $6.2 million a year, and Parkinson about $6.6 million per year.

Seattle may prioritize Fant over Parkinson because Fant started every game for the Seahawks in 2023. Whereas Parkinson came off the bench most of 2023 and made just one start for the Seahawks last season. The Seahawks would love to bring both of these two tight ends back, but if they can only pick one, then Fant appears to be the tight end Seattle needs to re-sign. Fortunately for the Seahawks, both Fant and Parkinson should not expect to command top dollar if they bring them back to Seattle.
