Person familiar with deal says Jets sign 5th-rounder OL Oday Aboushi to 4-year deal

A person familiar with the deal says the New York Jets have signed offensive lineman Oday Aboushi, the team's fifth-round draft pick, to a four-year contract.

The signing Friday comes a day after the Jets agreed to terms on four-year deals with two other draft picks: offensive lineman Brian Winters and fullback Tommy Bohanon. The person spoke to The Associated Press about Aboushi's deal on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced the contract.

Aboushi, a Staten Island native, was a standout at the University of Virginia after starring at Brooklyn's Xaverian High School. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Aboushi will work at left and right tackle, as well as potentially guard to add depth to the offensive line.

The Jets opened rookie minicamp on Friday.
