FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Obum Gwacham wanted to catch footballs from the time he started playing the sport.
Now, the New York Jets linebacker is chasing after the guys who are throwing them.
"You can also catch the ball on defense, too," Gwacham said with a big smile. "So if I'm able to do that, I would not be mad at all."
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets signed defensive lineman Ed Stinson and outside linebacker Obum Gwacham on Wednesday, and placed rookie outside linebacker Dylan Donahue on injured reserve.
The team also announced that it signed linebacker Freddie Bishop to the practice squad.
Stinson was a fifth-round draft choice of Arizona in 2014 and had 22 tackles in three seasons with the Cardinals. He was waived from injured reserve on Sept. 13.
