The Lions have re-signed offensive lineman Oday Aboushi per Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com. It’s a one-year deal for the 2013 fifth-rounder.

Presuming Aboushi makes the Lions, 2020 will give him a rare opportunity for geographical stability. In his seven years in the league, he has had stints with the Jets, Texans, Seahawks, Raiders, Cardinals, and Lions.

The UVA product will also have a real chance at starting for Detroit this year after appearing in just seven games (two starts) in 2019. The Lions let right guard Graham Glasgow depart in free agency, and left guard Joe Dahl is coming off a season-ending back injury. Beau Benzschawel and swing tackle Tyrell Crosby could also compete for a starting guard gig.

Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Lions — who generally do not value the guard position — showed interest in free agents such as Greg Van Roten before circling back to Aboushi. The 6-5, 315-pounder is not a world beater by any means, but he has started 34 games in his career and doesn’t turn 30 until June.
