In 2010, Ben Obomanu's longest reception was for 87 yards.
Who was the opponent?

T / F The result of the play was not a touchdown.

You have 15 seconds

Fought for everything given to him. Like he said a 7th rd pick being on one team for 7 years is pretty amazing. God speed Obo, always appreciated your effort. He was just not worth the money that he was due to make anymore.

I doubt if it was a money issue. More just counting heads. Not enough roster spots.


If I may respectfully disagree, Seattle saves about 2.45M by cutting Obomanu. We are somewhere near (right up against?) the cap, so this money will come in handy for us.


I disrespectfully agree with this.

Obo was a special teams baller. We will draft his replacement in the 6th round this April.

Bizarre.


Well played Tech, I wonder how many people don't get it.

Loved the next post (my bad forgot who) and now he's 86'd.

Back to back comedy gold right there.

Best wish's for a guy that has been all over our depth chart including even being our #1 for a stint in 08 when out entire WR core went down to injury including Seneca Wallace who was going to fill in at WR due to need but pulled a hammy coming out of the tunnel. God what a putrid year of football that was.

He definitely got in at the right time though. The biggest reason for him lasting 7 years is directly related to turmoil in the WR corps, compliments of one Mr Tim Ruskell.

I believe that leaves Hill as the last man standing from the Ruskell era though I suspect that experiment won't last much longer either.

Edit: I know Trufant is still here but he wasn't drafted by TR. I'm referencing TR draft picks of which Hill and Obo, I believe were the last two.

Does this mean I can't pick him as my breakout player again this year?

Chiefs?

And false, it was a TD.

I think that was the same game Earl had his first regular season TD...on a blocked punt return.

Watch him end up a 49er. It actually males sense. He could beat out some of the depth on that roster including Jenkins, would possibly bring trade secrets and is a great special teams guy. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

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!

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.

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...

Are we the same person? My wife and I married in 87, have 2 children born on the 6th and the 9th, and my car also has 87,000 EXACT (0 tenths!!) right now!

I'm off to church tomorrow, fellas.

He should have been cut after his TD celebration dance in NY.
