FA Guard Edwin Mutalo Signs with Lions on a 3-Yr Deal

Postby madaslives911 » Sat Mar 24, 2007 5:46 am

Mulitalo agrees to terms on three-year deal with Lions

The Lions have reached an agreement with free agent guard Edwin Mulitalo on a three-year deal and an announcement will be made as soon as the documents are signed.

The addition of Mulitalo puts Damien Woody on even thinner ice. Woody, who lost more than 30 pounds and reported in good shape to the off-season workouts, has a cap number of $6 million for the 2007 season. The Lions could save $3 million in cap space this season if Woody is released after June 1.

The Lions are still hoping Woody will get his act togther and the combination of Mulitalo and a athletic and agile Woody would give the Lions some real strength on the interior of the offensive line. If the Lions like the way Woody is performing through the off-season workouts and training camp, don't be surprised if they go to him and try to restructure his deal to make his cap hit less brutal.

The Lions also signed free agent guard Zach Piller, who has starting experience in the league. The Lions now have a lot of depth at guard with Mulitalo, Woody, Piller, Barry Stokes and two young prospects Frank Davis and Stephen Peterman.

Mulitalo was a seven-year starter for the Baltimore Ravens before becoming a free agent in the off-season.

Well, he can't be that bad if he was starting on the Ravens, but it makes you wonder why nobody else wanted him :-°

The words injury-prone and just about washed up come to mind.

Still, it doesn't hurt adding him. I think he'll do alright in Detroit.

It is nice to see Detroit finally trying do shore up their offensive line, rather than just stockpiling overhyped young skill players. I mean, I don't want to see any other NFC North team getting smarter, but their fans don't deserve this.
