George Fant agrees to terms with the Jets

The Jets have their first addition of the offseason, and it is Seahawks offensive lineman George Fant.

Seattle signed Fant as an undrafted free agent in 2016. As a depth player, Fant accumulated 24 starts during his time with Seattle where his play was up and down.

This is the first move of the offseason for the Jets so I think it is a bit difficult to judge. I’m not entirely certain what the plan is with Fant. It is the first in a series of moves. I tend to doubt this addition will prevent the Jets from trying to address tackle in the NFL Draft. The team also is presumably hoping Chuma Edoga makes a big leap between years one and two.

$10 million a year for somebody like Fant seems like a lot of money at first, but I’m less certain of that when I factor in the lack of quality on the offensive line in the NFL and the likely rise in the salary cap going forward.
