49ers signed RB Xavier Omon, C Chase Beeler, OT Derek Hall, WR Joe Hastings, CB Cory Nelms, TE Konrad Reuland, and OLB Monte Simmons to their practice squad.
Journeyman Omon opened eyes with a strong exhibition season, rushing for 121 yards on 30 carries. The final spot is expected to go to LB Keaton Kristick, who was waived Sunday. It's interesting to note that a quicker Hastings was kept over sixth-rounder Ronald Johnson, who struggled in preseason action. Mon, Sep 5, 2011 12:48:00 AM

49ers signed RB Xavier Omon, WRs Lance Long and Kevin Jurovich, K Fabrizio Scaccia, and OL Nick Howell to reserve/future contracts.

Omon, a sixth-round pick of the Bills in 2008, has shown a plodding style in preseason opportunities and managed just 27 yards on 11 career carries. Long was a onetime fantasy sleeper in Kansas City. He can play the slot, but it was a bad sign when a receiver-needy Todd Haley gave up on him in 2009.

Seahaws waived RB Xavier Omon.

Despite an ultra-productive college career at D-II Northwest Missouri State, Omon has shown nothing as a pro. He's running out of chances and may not land a roster spot elsewhere this summer.
Tue, Apr 6, 2010 07:02:00 PM

Seahawks signed RB Xavier Omon, WR Patrick Carter, WR Mike Jones, LB Anthony Heygood, TE Jason Pociask, and CB DeAngelo Willingham to reserve/futures contracts.

The Seattle backfield is a nice opportunity, but Omon has shown a lack of explosiveness in his time with the Bills.

Seahawks signed RB Xavier Omon to their practice squad.

Omon, the Bills' sixth-round pick in 2007, will be Seattle's No. 3 tailback until Julius Jones (ribs, lung) returns to the lineup. Omon's addition may be an admission from the Seahawks that Jones will miss multiple games.

Bills waived RB Xavier Omon.

Omon's stint in Buffalo ends after he generated 27 yards on 11 carries in two seasons. The 2008 sixth-round pick lacks burst to have a long NFL career.

With Dominic Rhodes' release, Xavier Omon will likely be the Bills' No. 2 RB for the first three weeks of the season.

Omon must have made a big enough impression on the Bills' staff to allow them to feel comfortable cutting Rhodes. Marshawn Lynch is suspended for the first three weeks, leaving Fred Jackson as the starter.

Bills second-year RB Xavier Omon has dropped 11 pounds since the end of last season.

Omon showed nothing as a rookie, but the Buffalo News says he was "noticeably quicker in hitting the hole" in Sunday's Hall of Fame game. We watched the game and there was nothing impressive about Omon's explosion. He must've really lacked a quick first step before. He's on the roster bubble.
Tue, Aug 11, 2009 09:35:00 AM

Bills declared RB Xavier Omon, third QB Gibran Hamdan, SS Donte Whitner, G Brad Butler, LB Teddy Lehman, T Demetrius Bell, WR Josh Reed, and DE Aaron Schobel inactive for Week 10 against the Patriots.

Roscoe Parrish starts opposite Lee Evans. Ryan Denney replaces Schobel.

Rookie Xavier Omon is not expected to be on Buffalo's Week 1 roster.

They'll try to get him on the practice squad. Omon faced a big jump out of D-II Northwest Missouri State and has been outplayed by Dwayne Wright.
Wed, Aug 20, 2008 04:13:00 PM

Rookie Xavier Omon rushed for sixteen yards on five carries and a fumble in the Bills' first preseason game Saturday.

Dwayne Wright had a similar outing with 20 yards on six carries and a fumble. Omon is trying to overtake Wright as the third stringer, but he may be headed to the practice squad instead.
Sat, Aug 9, 2008 11:18:00 PM

Bills signed sixth-round RB Xavier Omon to an undisclosed contract.

He was ridiculously productive at DII NW Missouri State. The bruiser has an uphill climb, though, to make the team if the Bills only keep three tailbacks. It's possible Omon could go on the practice squad.
Thu, Jul 24, 2008 12:56:00 PM

Bills selected Northwest Missouri State RB Xavier Omon with the No. 179 overall pick in the draft.

The Bills don't need a running back, but probably felt Omon was the best player available. Omon has good size at 5'11/226, but injury questions. He's not all that different from last year's sixth-rounder, Dwayne Wright.
