2011 NFL Free Agency: David Vobora Signed By Seattle Seahawks, Vai Taua Released

David Vobora was once Mr. Irrelevant, being drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the 2008 NFL Draft. It appears that he's as close to being Mr. Irrelevant of the 2011 NFL free agency mad scramble, as he finally got signed late in the cycle.

The Rams linebacker was buried on the bench in St. Louis and never really got a chance to play in his few years there, putting up 98 tackles in 34 games played through three seasons. Vobora will look for more extended run with the Seattle Seahawks. Curtis Crabtree of 950 KJR reports that Vobora was signed after working out with the team. He mostly played outside linebacker with the Rams.

Rookie running back Vai Taua had to be let go to make room for Vobora. Taua was going to have trouble cracking the rotation anyway, so it's not a huge surprise that the Seahawks decided to let him go.
