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.

If you're an NFL fan, you typically fall into one of two classifications: those who are for Tim Tebow and those against him.
It's quite obvious where a certain sect of Jaguars fans stand.
The Bold City Brigade, a Jags booster club now in its second year, has started a website, Evenifhesreleased.com, to combat the swirling Tebow rumors, petitions, and PR campaigns.
With first year offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg attempting to change the complexion of a spotty offense, Jets' rookie Geno Smith is working diligently to take command of a West Coast style system.
Tim Tebow is still in search of an NFL job, and many have speculated that the New England Patriots would be a logical destination if he is willing to give up on playing quarterback. Bill Belichick is known for getting the most out of players and showcasing their versatility, so some have wondered if the Patriots could use Tebow as an H-back or tight end.
According to Michael Silver...
