Slowly but surely, the Detroit Lions are trying to build their depth back on the offensive line. According to the Detroit News’ Justin Rogers, the Lions are re-signing veteran guard Oday Aboushi to a one-year deal.
Aboushi was first brought to Detroit last year. The Lions likely brought him aboard due to his familiarity with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, whom he played under in 2017 with the Seahawks (started eight games that season).
Last year, Aboushi was simply a reserve, making seven game appearances and two starts. He earned a PFF ranking of just 57.7 in those games.
Aboushi now joins Beau Benzschawel and Josh Garnett as the two most likely candidates to replace right guard Graham Glasgow, who agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with the Denver Broncos last week. The Lions appear to still be looking to upgrade the position, as they were reportedly interested in former Panthers guard Greg Van Roten. However, Van Roten has since signed with the Jets.
