    Jets sign Ben Obomanu

    via @nyjets

    The New York Jets have signed WR Ben Obomanu and have placed QB David Garrard on the reserve/retired list.

    He's been on the Seahawks for the last few years. He'll be another part of the group competing for the 4th and 5th WR spots.

    Idzik liked Ben Obomanu over Braylon Edwards.

    Ben was a terrific special teams player and a dependable receiver. He severely injured his wrist and was lost to the team. He had a 2.9 contract. Apparently he can do what Braylon could do and even more.

    Seahawks fans seem to love this guy - a player with some talent who always gave 100% and added real value on special teams. Also supposed to be great in the locker room. Nice signing.

    Obo can challenge for #4 or #5 and play specials too, Jordan White is in danger of not making this team now.

    So the WR group now consists of:

    Holmes
    Hill
    Kerley
    White
    Rogers
    Obomanu
    Gates
    Collins
    Davis

    Are there names I'm missing and how many will be kept? 6/7?

    Here's to hoping Hayden Smith turns into the Aussie version of Gates...

    Sucks BrayBray won't be back... However if anyone of these recievers nose dive hopefully he will be on speed dial. As far as Obomanu goes lets see what he got. If he is a number 5 that does well on special teams then you really can't complain about the signing.

    I like the signing. He was solid here in Seattle for a few years. Good value player and still can contribute on special teams. Better option than Braylon.
