The Seattle Seahawks officially placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent OT George Fant.
The second-round tender will cost them $3.095 million for the 2019 season and ensure that they receive a second-round pick for him if they decline to match an offer he receives from another team.
Fant, 26, signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky back in 2016. He finished a three-year rookie contract and was set to test the open market for the first time in his career if not tendered.
In 2018, Fant appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and started seven. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 26 overall offensive tackle out of 80 qualifying players.
