David Vobora was born in the Pacific Northwest and he played high school and college football in the region.
Therefore, the former Mr. Irrelevant is not irrelevant in the Pacific Northwest.
Vobora will now get to return home to play for the NFL team in the Pacific Northwest.
The 6-foot-1, 239-pound linebacker signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, 10 days after the St. Louis Rams released the last player chosen in the 2008 NFL Draft.
Vobora joins an NFC West divisional foe after playing 34 games in three seasons with the Rams. He started 16 times, 10 during the 2009 season, when he finished with a career-high 49 tackles.
Vobora, who played at Winston Churchill High in Eugene, Oregon, before starring at the University of Idaho, will try to help Seattle defend its division title.
