Obomanu Out for the season - Kearse promoted

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • From Seahawks Twitter

    Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse & T Mike Person have been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. WR Phil Bates signed to practice squad.

    Seahawks WR Ben Obomanu has been placed on Reserve/Injured for the remainder of season. CB Danny Gorrer has been released.

    More to come I imagine.....

  • I wondering if he was about to move to another team's roster, so the Seahawks had to bump him or lose him. We also don't know if Thurmond is getting activated. My guess is more action is coming.

  • Also per @Seahawks, CB Danny Gorrer released, presumably to make room for Walter Thurmond to be activated.

    Yeah, I guess, he's got a whole 3 tackles. I'm pretty sure we've got guys who can play special teams.

    More to special teams than tackles stats, especially for a gunner - who absorbs the blocks that frees up others to MAKE tackles.

    And if we had better guys for special teams, they would already be playing ahead of him. A huge reason Obo was kept on the roster this season was his experience and ability to play special teams.

    I wouldn't discount it. It creates a hole that someone else needs to fill. Not a huge void, but a void nonetheless.

  • Unless I missed a transaction somewhere, I still think Burress is worth a look. I would'nt send Paul's private plane out to get him but I'd send him a RT ticket. Coach.

    Obo has his moments, both on ST and as a WR, but I echo the previous post suggesting he's played his last down as a Hawk. Having endured the rollercoaster ride Kearse offered both Jake and Price, I have mixed emotions about his activation. The dude is just so inconsistant and constantly wants to turn his head downfield before looking the ball in. A hero one moment, a heartbreaker the next. Hopefully some NFL coaching has broken him of this Pop Warner type play. I want him to excel, but not holding my breath.

    I am going to continue screaming for Robert Woods until the conclusion of this upcoming draft's (mid) first rd. We would likely have to move up a few spots to secure him, but he is exactly the type of WR needed by both Wilson and the Hawks. I'll be pissed when we (likely) pass on him, in favor of some unheard of WR discovered by Pete in the late rds. Please resist the urge to come back with Baldwin, such gems are found quite infrequently.

  • This news sucks. Seattle's just got a huge gaping hole at receiver. We lost both games the last two weeks (SF & DET) because of dropped passes. Our WRs and TEs look terrible. Heck, even Lynch and Turbin have dropped crucial passes this season that basically killed drives when we really REALLY needed points. You need 1-2 good clutch receivers (at least) to be successful in the NFL, and we have zero. Of course, it's a problem most of us saw before the season even began, no surprise there. I'm just surprised they haven't spent any picks at receiver, when it's such an obvious need.

    I'm hoping Sarkisian gets fired from the UW, comes to the Seahawks, and we draft a boat-load of receivers this offseason, along with a few pass blocking OLs. Get those two areas straightened up, and we might contend next season.

    ..so long as he is not asked to partake in the development of Wilson. I am far from an expert on the subject, but I'm not at all pleased with his influence on Locker and even less so with Keith Price. Udubs patchwork Oline has hurt Price's progress for sure, but it is clear Sark expects something from his QBs that ignores their actual skillset. Correct me if I am mistaken, but I don't believe Price ran the ball even once this past weekend! I could see Sark bottling-up Wilson as well.

    The (anticipated) argument that Sark did well with QBs @ SC cannot be proven. Most of us would do well coaching the talent SC gets ...but how many, in recent years, have done well in the pros, no longer playing against inferior competition?

    Or tell Wilson to never throw it right to him, never in the numbers. He only makes redonkulous catches, but never easy catches.

    He's had five special-teams tackles in his last 24 games. Very replaceable, especially given Pete's penchant for riffling through ST players.

  • I am with Greg on this one, special teams play is one of those things where tackles don't mean much. I have seen Obo force the punt/kick returner to react too many times to think he won't be missed on special teams.

    With Harvin returning kicks, Obo might be missed rather severely. It is not a small thing at all. Especially since Robinson, also a special teamer, might be missing as well.

  • Sad to hear about Obo.

    With Baldwin out we don't have a possession receiver, I think that's the missing link in are passing game. I'm not so sure Kearse is the answer, but I don't suspect or expect Carroll to make any moves.

  • Also sad about Obo.

    I like the Kearse move. Good one-on-one matchup guy, can go up and take the ball.

    That being said, I'd cut Braylon Edwards right now and grab Greg Salas ( http://www.google.com/search?q=greg+salas ) from the Pat's practice squad. I would cut Edwards and hope a killer slot guy can comPETE his way into the starting lineup after the bye week.

    We desperately need depth at WR soon!

  • It's possible that the Seahawks are using their 53rd roster spot for a tryout rotation just like they did with their 7th and 8th PS spots earlier in the year. Maybe Kearse gets some looks in real games for a couple weeks and then they try Tuinei, etc.

    Whatever ends up happening, I'm glad that Kearse got his name called. He barely played in the preseason because of an injury, but when he did, he looked polished. If he can beat his drop problem from college, I could easily see him making it as an NFL WR. He's good at everything else. Further, Keith Price has really suffered this year in his absence. There are a lot of factors that go into it, but seeing Price roll outside and ALWAYS throw the ball away, I can't help but think that Kearse's savvy presence is being missed at UW.

  • I say give Kearse a look. He's got to have more upside than Charly Martin.

    Interesting points about Kearse, as I don't know much about him.

    Tuinei can't be signed as he's with a CFL team now.

  • Interesting to see Jordan Shipley mentioned as getting a tryout with the Texans. I am blown away that he's not currently with a team. I was highly impressed with him in college and was just certain he'd be on an NFL roster for a long time. The guy just had "3rd down possession receiver for 12 seasons" written all over him. Not huge, but strong, great hands, good quickness (not straight line speed), but a guy who will go get the ball. I guess he really reminded me of a Paul Skansi/Bobby Engram type. I wouldn't be averse to taking a flyer on him for a couple of weeks if he is healthy. I can't imagine him not playing well unless he's just hurt or totally disinterested in playing in the NFL.

    The one guy I'd love to have right now is the guy who gave up on football... Jeff Samardzjia (sp?). That kid was a darn good receiver at Notre Dame, and I thought he'd be a Randy Moss type talent in the NFL, without all of the headaches since Jeff seems to have his head screwed on straight. He made the right choice by playing baseball since he'll have a longer career, have less damage to his body, and will have a big fat pension from the MLB players union as long as he gets enough service time in. The guys who cut out on baseball and go back to college football are the ones who realize they aren't going to get their pension years in (See Weeden, Brandon).
