Omameh also appeared in four postseason contests with the Saints, starting in all three games during the Saints’ 2020 postseason campaign.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Omameh played in 45 contests with 41 starts during his time with the Wolverines (2008-12), starting in every game over his final three seasons. In 2012 as a senior, he earned first-team All-Big Ten honors and was named to the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.
Omameh will wear No. 78.
