  • He was a survivor, and a player that simply competed and survived for 7 years. I had respect for him but in the end his talent was surpassed by the depth on the team and the writing was on the wall.

    His contract made him expendable. I think that survivor's mentality may be missed but there is a focus here that speaks of inevitability and Ben's time here was up.

    He'll find a job as he competes and is an undoubtedly talented ST player. I'd not be surprised to see him surface in Jacksonville or with the NY Jets.

    Thanks for your time here Obo. Good Luck going forward!
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    What a special magical year!

  • Mah boy Obo!

    I'll always love that guy for playing through an injury against the Saints in the playoffs and having a solid game. The dude was a team player all throughout and gave up his body for the team numerous times. And an excellent, excellent gunner. If Lane can be as consistent as Obo was, he'll have a solid career for himself just as a gunner alone.

    I really hope he catches on somewhere and has a bit of a revival. He deserves it.

    Goodbye Ben! Best of luck for the rest of your life.

    He was also 87th on the depth chart.

    Bizarre.

    Bizarre you say?

    My wife and I were married in 1987. My first son was born on the 6th and the other son born on the 9th, leaving the 8 and 7 bracketed. My car has 87,000 miles on it as of today. I sold a car last month to a guy for $8700.

    And it appears the Hawks decided to let Obo go on the 15th.... the sum of 8 and 7.

    Spooky...

    He has been on the bubble every off-season since the year he was drafted in the 7th round.
