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.
