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.

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.

New York Jets – Mornhinweg Given Opportunity To Shine

With low expectations and a hands off head coach, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will have a chance to shine for the New York Jets

The New York Jets made a savvy coaching decision this off-season by replacing Tony Sparano with Marty Mornhinweg as the team’s offensive coordinator. Savvy could be an overstatement considering what an obvious choice it was to fire Sparano. Savvy could also be an understatement considering how AWFUL Sparano was last season and since Mornhinweg has proven to be a competent NFL offensive coordinator. Regardless of the level of savvy, it was a positive move and this season will provide Mornhinweg a chance to shine.
