Jets Sign Omon, Rinehart to Practice Squad

The New York Jets have signed RB Xavier Omon and G Chad Rinehart to the practice squad. The announcements were made by General Manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Omon (RB, 5-foot-11, 227, Northwest Missouri State) was waived by the Seattle Seahawks on April 4, 2010, after spending most of his first two seasons with the Buffalo Bills. Originally a sixth-round draft pick by Buffalo in 2008, he has played seven games in his career, all with the Bills. He has 11 carries for 27 yards and has returned one kick for 26 yards. He was signed to the Seahawks practice squad on November 17, 2009, after being waived by Buffalo on November 11, 2009. Omon rushed for 7,073 yards at Northwest Missouri State and is one of only two players in college football history to rush for 1,500 yards in each of his four seasons.

Rinehart (G, 6-foot-5, 310, Northern Iowa) was waived by the Washington Redskins on September 4, 2010, after two seasons with the team. He was initially drafted by Washington in the third round (96th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft. Rinehart played all five of his career games last season and made one start, before being placed on injured reserve on Nov. 24, 2009, with a fractured fibula. At Northwest Iowa, he played 47 games, starting 44, and was named a consensus FCS All-American.
