Seahawks Sign Oday Aboushi

A Seahawks-themed Friday continues: The team has signed free agent guard Oday Aboushi to a one-year contract, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Oday Aboushi

The 25-year-old has started in 18 of 26 appearances since the Jets used a fifth-round pick on him in 2013. He was with Gang Green through the 2014 campaign before ending up in Houston, which claimed him off waivers from the Jets in September 2015. Aboushi served a one-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy that year. He appeared in just four games last year and made three starts.

Aboushi, whom PFR’s Zach Links ranked as the seventh-best interior lineman on the market before Friday’s deal, follows Luke Joeckel as the second O-lineman the Seahawks have picked up in this year’s free agent class. The team also visited with tackles Ryan Clady and, per Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com, Matt McCants on Friday. Aboushi figures to serve as depth behind starting guards Germain Ifedi and Mark Glowinski.

      He is the 7th rated guard in this years FA…Drafted in the 5th by the Jets he played there as a rookie then shipped out to Texans. Played the next tow years there and I believe he started like 6 games. His 4th season will be with the Hawks. He is 25 and has played both right and left guard.

    Who in the heck is O’Day Aboushi? Was there something wrong with Ryan Clady? Are the Hawks allergic to signing guys that might help fix the o line or what!

      You say you left the office and did shots at 3 different bars on the way home? Also did some line…. line dancing and drank corn whiskey at a cowpoke bar?
