Seahawks’ Noah Fant discusses trade from Broncos, Seattle QB battle and the new chip on his shoulder

The former All-Big Ten player out of Iowa is an athletic receiver who likely has his best football ahead of him. He's certainly hoping this move north sparks something. The Seahawks picked up the fifth-yea...
