Jeff Otah has had a full plate as of late. The offensive tackle was traded by the Carolina Panthers to the New York Jets last week, only to go back to the Panthers based on the trade not going through due to Otah’s failure to pass a mandatory physical. Otah was a first round pick by Carolina in the 2008 NFL Draft, but has battled the injury bug ever since. Then the Panthers made Otah go through physicals to see if they even wanted to keep him on their roster. They chose not to retain Otah; he is now a free agent.
Meanwhile, Otah also was going through a change of representation. He was formerly represented by Lock Metz Malinovic (LMM) and recently switched to Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod of Schwartz & Feinsod. The company has already announced that Otah will be at former Pro Bowler LeCharles Bentley’s O-Line Academy.
Feinsod has also stated, “[Otah will] definitely be able to play again, and we definitely think he’ll be able to play this season.”
