  • Edwin Mulitalo Visits

    http://www.detroitlions.com/document...ment_id=455877

    It looks like Multalo is visiting Detroit today. Depending on his health and his price, he would be a decent stopgap solution at Left Guard. He's a better run blocker than pass blocker, but he's better than what we have right now at Left Guard, which is nobody. I would still want to draft a good guard in Round 2 for the future if Grubbs or Blalock fell.

    Any thoughts on Mulitalo?

    He should play right guard if he's a better run blocker.

      He played left guard all the time in Baltimore I think though.

        Would be a great signing. If we sign him, I think it might indicate that George Foster will indeed play RT, rather than shifting inside to guard . . . and therefore, no Joe Thomas . . .

        Or I suppose it could mark the end of the Damien Woody era as well . . .

        Hmm . . .

          Depending on the price, I'd be happy with the signing.

            I think it would mark the end of the Damien Woody era. Fairly surprised that Mulitalo didn't make his first visit with Washington. He reportedly wants to stay in the DC area and the Skins are looking for a guard. That said, if he's healthy, Edwin would help you guys out inside. Add another OL piece in the draft, and the whole line looks much better.

              Toonster, what do you think of George Foster? Is he best suited to play OG or RT for us? Or is he essentially a "throw in" from that trade that will have little effect on whether we draft Thomas or not . . .

                I was hoping that he'd visit... adding Multalo and Foster can only help us. I guess we could get rid of Woody and still draft JThomas... have a line of Backus-Multalo-Raiola-Foster-JThomas (or something)... or either JScott/Foster can play RT and we could spend the pick differently.

                I'm glad they're getting players for the Oline. Now I just hope they pan out.

                  I think Foster is our Right Tackle with Tucker providing some depth there right now. I think Woody will stay depending on the draft and Saipia will back him up at Right Guard. However, if Justin Blalock drops to us Woody could be gone.
                  Backus,Mulitalo,Raiola,Woody,Foster doesn't seem too bad to me.
                  Hope we sign him. Foster is making 2.3 million this year.

                    I just realized why Mulitalo visited. Our O-line coach Collello coached him in Baltimore. Good connection there. Hopefully, that is enough to sway him away from Washington.

                      Getting Blalock would really be great. He's vastly underrated on this forum IMO.

                        Which is great.

                        I love players that are top 15 picks before the Combine and 2nd round picks after... the workout warriors jump and the great performers fall to your 2nd round pick.

                          great for us, sucks for him though.

                          Is everyone this harsh on him everywhere or is it just a NFLDC thing?

                            Mulitalo didn't sign, which leads me to believe that perhaps he wanted too much cash.

                            If you look at the deals that some less-than-top-tier interior lineman have received this offseason, and the fact that he's 32 and may never see another big contract, it wouldn't surprise me if Edwin's demands were a touch out of Detroit's range.

                              Edwin is probably waiting to see on Washington's offer. He would prefer to stay in the DC/Baltimore area.
