New York Jets Sign WR Ben Obomanu, Other OTA Notes

Thoughts on the New York Jets signing wide receiver Obomanu and other notes from today’s OTA practice

The New York Jets made an intriguing signing today, bringing in former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ben Obomanu. Since coming into the league in 2007, Obomanu has racked up 87 receptions, 1,209 yards and 7 touchdowns. In 2011, he started 7 games for the Seahawks, finishing with 37 receptions for 436 yards. He was gradually bumped down the depth chart in 2012 and made an impact in only one game last year for Seattle, pulling in 3 catches for 50 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. It is worth noting, Obomanu does have 15 career post-season catches for 174 yards in four career games, so he has experience in big spots.

Chris Gross brings back New York Jets Fact or False with a look at our biggest hits & misses from the 2012 season.

Welcome back to another season of New York Jets Fact or False! Last year, we introduced this column to provide some entertaining predictions throughout the entire season, with topics beginning from OTAs in early May all the way through the end of the season when we just began to predict whether or not Mark Sanchez could last an entire series without doing something idiotic.

While there were plenty of issues we predicted with pinpoint accuracy, there are probably more we completely whiffed on. Today, we will look at the three biggest points we hit on the head, and the three biggest points we couldn’t have been more wrong about.

New York Jets – Offensive Versatility Will Be Critical

The New York Jets skill position players on offense need to be versatile to compensate for the team’s lack of overall depth

Similar to the problems with assigning rigid labels on defense, pigeonholing offensive players to one spot is frequently an incorrect assumption. There is increasing fluidity to player’s positions and the New York Jets offense will need that type of versatility to help compensate for their lack of overall depth.
