The Seahawks have added another body to a unit whose body of work has not been great in recent years.

Via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, the team signed veteran offensive lineman Oday Aboushi. The 26-year-old blocker entered the NFL as a fifth-round draft pick of the Jets in 2013. He has spent the last two seasons with the Texans.

Aboushi joins Luke Joeckel, the second overall pick in that same draft, as the newest members of the Seahawks offensive line.

The former Virginia lineman has 26 career regular-season appearances, and 18 career starts.

  1. Apparently he played very well in two playoff starts for the Texans and was in their plans going forward. Now the Seahawks stole him. This may be one of those under the radar moves that pays off big by November-December-January-February.

    =======================

    The Seahawks ‘stole’ a guy that was in the Texans ‘plans going forward’ that they didn’t even bother to tender? 12’s, lol

  3. Yeah they stole a guy that the Texans would wait around until after the draft and if they had no other choice they would sign him…. little Ricky Smith is a McNair yes man waiting on Romo to drop in their laps. McNair king of the honeymooners been riding the Oiler exit Texan entry into the NFL wave for 15 years with honeymoons in between, Kubiak after Capers/Casserly crapped out, Wade Phillips when the defense sucked Case Keenum when Schaub stubbed his toe… all the time selling the Texans as Superbowl contenders… Sales superb
    znd the dummies here buy it.. only Romo away from the superbowl…. and a WR , some TE’s an OL and a RB…. to go with a safety, and ILB, a DL and a corner back… simple just get ROMO

  4. I’m stoked that this guy is an actual o-lineman as opposed to like a cricket player Cable decided could be converted into an o-lineman.

  5. They really paid $8 million for Luke Joeckel? I hope it wasn’t 8 mill guaranteed. The guy can’t block.

  6. Russell Wilson is short. Russell Wilson has an amazing arm. Give him the extra time to see the field. It’s really that simple. I love defense, but give Russ protection and the league is ours. My apologies for the homer post.
