Fresh off a suspension, Jets give offensive lineman Oday Aboushi his walking papers

NFL: Preseason-New York Jets at Cincinnati BengalsThe past 48 hours probably has not been great for offensive lineman Oday Aboushi. After starting ten games last season, Aboushi was expected to retain his role and improve along the way. Everything changed when the NFL informed Aboushi that he would be suspended for the Jets season opener. His suspension ended on Monday, so the Jets were granted a one-day exemption to decide if they want to keep Aboushi or to let him go. Well it looks like that Jets choose door number two and gave Aboushi his walking papers on Tuesday.


Offensive lineman Oday Abousi, who had been suspended for Week 1 for violating the NFL’s drug policy—at least according to commissioner Roger Goodell’s roulette wheel of justice—was waived on Tuesday, the Jets announced.

Aboushi’s suspension officially ended on Monday, and the Jets do not have to make a corresponding roster move because he did not count on the 53-man roster during the suspension. The Jets were granted a one-day exemption to decide whether to keep Aboushi or to cut him loose. They chose the latter.


I’m sure that Aboushi will probably get picked up by another team at some point this season but his last 48 hours has sucked big time.
