Former Iowa TE Noah Fant 'frustrated' with Broncos' offense: It's time to 'Put up or shut up'
Former Iowa star and Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant doesn’t seem too pleased with how things are going in Denver to start the season.
Fant led his frustrations out after Denver’s loss against the Kansas City Chiefs (via Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com):
“I don’t have a bad attitude about it, right?” Fant said. “But I’m definitely not happy with the results that we have right now, right? It’s unacceptable. I’m still positive about it, but at some point it’s like, put up or shut up, and buckle down and get these things going.”
The second-year tight end has 22 receptions for 257 yards and two touchdowns thus far. He’s also battled some injuries this season. However, the Broncos only sit at 2-4 which puts them in last place in the AFC West.
Denver ranks 28th in yards per game and points per game which is simply not good enough.
Fant was a first round pick for the Broncos in the 2019 draft after an excellent career with the Hawkeyes. His last year in Iowa, Fant caught 39 passes for 519 yards and seven touchdowns while sharing the position with fellow first-rounder TJ Hockenson.
Next up for Fant and the Broncos is a date with the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday. Kickoff is at 4:05 p.m. ET.
