The Super Hornet is indeed non-stealthy, and when the Naval Advanced Tactical Fighter and follow-on A-X (aka A/F-X) programs were canceled for budgetary reasons, the Navy chose the Super Hornet as a cheap alternative to the A/F-X to do the air-to-air role that the NATF might have carried out.

If a winning design for the F/A-XX program is built, no matter if funding for the F/A-XX program has been delayed, then it will provide the Navy with the kind of naval stealth fighter which the still-born NATF program aimed to create.
