St. Louis Rams Sign Fendi Onobun

The St. Louis Rams signed 6th round draft choice TE Fendi Onobun today. Reports are that the 6'6" 250lb freakish athlete out of the University of Houston received a 4-year deal worth $1.92 million with a $129,000 signing bonus. This seems like insane money for a player that did not play ANY High School football, and after a 4-year basketball career at Arizona then played 1 year of football at Houston. Onobun playing in only two games had 2 catches for 33 yards and a touchdown. Word is that Onobun will mostly play on special teams in 2010. While at Houston Onobun blocked two extra points in a 50-43 win over Southern Mississippi, earning him Conference USA Special Teams Player of the Week honors. I am still skeptical about a player with basically NO experience trying to play in the NFL. Only time will tell if Onobun can make the cut.
