Jacksonville Jaguars TE Fendi Onobun (knee) underwent surgery for a torn quadriceps and will miss the entire 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Same old story with Onobun here. He's a former basketball player who cannot stay healthy. His pro career is likely done.

  Jaguars | Sign Fendi Onobun    Thu Aug 7, 02:43 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed TE Fendi Onobun (Bears) Thursday, Aug. 7. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We don't expect anything from Onobun and neither should you. It seems like the tight end position in Jacksonville has never produced, certainly not consistently.

  Bears | Cut Fendi Onobun     Thu Jun 19, 03:18 PM

The Chicago Bears have informed TE Fendi Onobun that he will be released.

Footballguys view: They don't need the depth at tight end and Onobun didn't bring much to the table aside from blocking. The former basketball player has failed to play up to his potential as a pro.

  Bears | 11 signed to futures contracts    Mon Dec 30, 05:23 PM

The Chicago Bears have signed LS Brandon Hartson, CB Demontre Hurst, CB C.J. Wilson, TE Fendi Onobun, QB Jerrod Johnson, LB Lawrence J. Wilson, OT Rogers Gaines, SS Sean Cattouse, WR Terrence Toliver, DT Tracy Robertson and TE Zachary Miller to futures contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Deep dynasty league owners should have a few of these players on the radar. We like the upside of a guy like Toliver in that type of league. He's got an intriguing size/speed combination, and he's been working hard to improve his hands and route running ability.

  Bears | Seven signed    Wed Sep 4, 08:17 AM

The Chicago Bears signed free-agent QB Jerrod Johnson (Seahawks), WR Ricardo Lockette (49ers) and re-signed LB Jerry Franklin, CB Demontre Hurst, TE Fendi Onobun, FB Harvey Unga and DE Aston Whiteside to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Lockette is an interesting speedster to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. He can get on top of the defense in a hurry and track the ball over his shoulder.

  Bears | 12 players let go    Sat Aug 31, 09:24 PM

The Chicago Bears have released RB Armando Allen, OG Derek Dennis, LB J.T. Thomas, WR Terrence Toliver, OT Cory Brandon, DT Corvey Irvin, DT Christian Tupou, LS Brandon Hartson, CB Demontre Hurst, TE Fendi Onobun, RB Harvey Unga and DE Aston Whiteside.

Footballguys view: Allen and Unga lose out on a backup RB role with the Bears. Fantasy owners need to remember the name Michael Ford as he's now the RB3 in Chicago behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush. The rookie from LSU is a talented runner who loves to punish defenders.

  Bears | Fendi Onobun to get chance    Tue Jul 23, 11:17 AM

The Chicago Bears coaching staff is excited to see what TE Fendi Onobun can do in training camp and the preseason after a strong offseason performance.

Footballguys view: Onobun is a former basketball star who has been trying to make his way at the pro level. It sounds like he's past the maturity issues that plagued him during his time with the Rams. Onobun will be a backup TE behind Martellus Bennett.

  Bears | TE depth chart open    Wed May 22, 09:38 AM

The Chicago Bears' depth chart at tight end after TE Martellus Bennett is wide open. TE Fendi Onobun could seize an opportunity for playing time.

Footballguys view: Onobun is a converted basketball player who never lived up to the hype during his time with the Rams. After he was waived by the Rams in 2011 Onobun bounced around to four different teams (Seahawks, Redskins, Jaguars, Bills) before finding a spot with the Bears this year. He's incredibly athletic but attitude, work ethic and maturity problems have held him back. If he impresses the coaching staff he could win the backup job behind Bennett.

The Chicago Bears signed TE Fendi Onobun to a futures contract. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The Buffalo Bills have declared WR Brad Smith, OT Demetrius Bell, TE Fendi Onobun, DL Jarron Gilbert, RB Joshua Nesbitt, WR Kamar Aiken, OG Kraig Urbik inactive for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Derek Hagan is out there as a desperation WR play against the poor Patriots secondary. He'll get a lot of snaps with Smith out.

Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler (ankle) is likely to return to his starting role in Week 17 after being limited due to an ankle ailment. His backup, TE Mike Caussin (knee), isn't expected to be ready, so the team might activate TE Fendi Onobun this week.

The Washington Redskins signed free-agent TE Fendi Onobun (Seahawks) to the practice squad Wednesday, Nov. 9. CB Brandyn Thompson was re-signed to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Onobun is an athletic but very raw prospect at the TE position. The team could try to develop him over the rest of the year to see if he can play up to his potential.

  Rams | Six players released    Sat Sep 3, 01:31 PM

The St. Louis Rams have released RBs Keith Toston and Chase Reynolds, TE Fendi Onobun, OL Renardo Foster, LB Zac Diles and S Jonathan Nelson.

Footballguys view: Onobun failed to impress as a 'basketball to football' TE, but is extremely athletic and may get a look from another team. However, work ethic and attitude problems held him back in St. Louis. He'll have to mature in order to play up to his potential. Toston had some decent runs in the preseason, but with the addition of Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood the team didn't have any room for him.

  Rams | TEs Bajema or Onobun on hot seat?    Sun May 8, 07:03 PM

Cecil Lammey, NFL Insider for FRSN and senior writer at Footballguys.com, reports via Twitter that sources tell him the addition of TE Lance Kendricks could push either Billy Bajema or Fendi Onobun off the roster.

Footballguys view: Bajema is a consistent veteran who provides the team with quality depth. Onobun (the former basketball star) has higher upside, but work ethic questions and injuries have held back his young pro career.

  Rams | Fendi Onobun says back healthy    Wed Apr 20, 03:00 PM

St. Louis Rams TE Fendi Onobun said the bulging disc in his back that cost him most of the season is completely healed, according to Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Footballguys view: Onobun is an intriguing prospect and could be one of the next basketball to football stars at the Tight End position. However, he'll have to stay healthy and make sure he shows proper work ethic if he's going to make it in the NFL.
