I think we all saw this, a signing, coming. Sounds like a stable veteran with at the very least some credible experience. Besides the false starts, fabini looked good enough, so I'm not sure if Demulling will compete for a starting job. The offensive line signings from the front office both in Wade and Kendall have been crucial to the team, so we have no reason to doubt this signing right:whew:

Rick Demulling would be great for depth purposes as he has some NFL experience. However, Kili Lefotu would have been great for depth as well despite not having NFL experience and being waived by the Skins before the start of the 2007 NFL Season.

Lefotu is on the practice squad......he's a work in progress and clearly didn't get "called up" b/c he's still pretty green and not ready to even be a depth guy on the active roster.

Joe Bugel will make him better and maybe worthy of starting (if he isn't starting already, once he knows the offense that is). Only time will tell...
Yes, Joe Bugel will make the 7 year veteran better. :rolleyes:

I'm not knocking ol Buges, but it would be a little more impressive if one of the young bucs, like Lefotu could have been coached up to the active roster. :2cents:

Edit: BTW, I do like the signing.

Well, the problem with Lefotu now is that he's played a full season in NFL-E. No doubt that weighs in the decision. Also, it is a good thing to be able to keep a guy in reserve in a "free" roster spot.
