Jets sign WR Obomanu

The SportsXchange

The New York Jets signed wide receiver Ben Obomanu on Thursday, adding another target for quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Obomanu was released by the Seattle Seahawks more than two months ago. He caught four passes for 58 yards in the first eight games last season, but spent the rest of the season on injured reserve.

The 29-year-old was drafted in the 2006 seventh round by Seattle, and spent six seasons with the Seahawks. He has 87 career receptions for 1,209 yards, including seven touchdowns.

The Jets also placed quarterback David Garrard on the reserve/retired list. In nine career seasons -- all with the Jacksonville Jaguars -- he threw for 16,003 yards and 89 touchdowns.
