Bills' Efe Obada: Carolina-Buffalo pipeline continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada signed a one-year deal with the Bills on Wednesday.

Obada won't have too much trouble getting comfortable in his new digs, as several Bills -- including general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott -- have spent time with the Panthers organization. Obada, who hails from Nigeria, has worked his way through the NFL's international program. He'll try to land a spot on a deep Bills team as a reserve defensive end.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Tops five sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada finished the 2020 season with 18 tackles (10 solo), 5.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one fumble forced in 16 games.

Obada only played around 40 percent of Carolina's defensive snaps, yet his sack total placed second on the team. It also marked a new career high for Obada, who the Panthers will need to make a decision on as a restricted free agent this offseason.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Bill Voth of the team's official site reports.

Obada drew the questionable tag despite participating in full at practice this week, so it was a good sign the defensive lineman was still active. Obada has worked in a rotational role throughout the season, racking up 14 tackles (seven solo) and 3.5 sacks through 12 games, so expect him to continue that role for Week 14.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Continues strong stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada made two tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Lions.

Obada has come on strong lately, totaling 3.5 sacks over Carolina's last four games. That stretch now sees Obada ranked second on the team in sacks and could earn him more snaps going forward.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Ready for Thursday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odaba (back) is active for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Odaba was listed as questionable for Thursday's contest, despite the fact that he logged a trio of full practices leading up to the game. He'll play his usual rotational role at defensive end against Matt Ryan and the Falcons.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Rejoins Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada was re-signed by the Panthers on Tuesday after clearing waivers, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Obada's roster spot isn't very secure considering the team was willing to run the risk of having him go through waivers, but the defensive lineman should be on the Week 1 roster against the Raiders now that he's back on the 53-man roster.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Adds another year in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada signed a one-year contract extension with the Panthers on Monday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Obada worked in a reserve role this year, averaging 19.5 defensive snaps per game, and he accrued 24 tackles and a pass breakup. He was set to be an exclusive-rights free agent in March, but the 27-year-old will re-up early. The Panthers figure to add defensive ends either through free agency or the draft, but Obada could be in line for an increased workload in 2020 if neither Vernon Butler or Gerald McCoy re-sign.

Panthers' Efe Obada: Re-ups with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Obada signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports.

Obada, who went undrafted in 2015, made his NFL debut for the Panthers in 2018. The 27-year-old evidently impressed the team's brass across his 10 appearances, tallying eight tackles, two sacks and one interception. He'll likely play a rotation role at defensive end once again in his sophomore season.
