The Redskins have signed veteran offensive lineman Rick DeMulling, the team announced on Thursday.
To make room for DeMulling on the roster, the Redskins released wide receiver Shaun Bodiford.
DeMulling, 6-4 and 310 pounds, is in his seventh NFL season out of Idaho. He played in 14 games with seven starts last season in Detroit and has played in a total of 75 games with 53 starts in his NFL career.
DeMulling has primarily played guard in his NFL career and he provides veteran depth to a Redskins' offensive line that is without starters Jon Jansen and Randy Thomas due to injuries.
Originally selected by Indianapolis in the seventh round of the 2001 NFL Draft, DeMulling spent his first four NFL seasons with the Colts, playing in 48 games with 41 starts.
He signed with the Lions prior to the 2005 season and played in 13 games with five starts.
A native of Cheney, Wash., DeMulling played his college ball at Idaho, where he was a four-year starter and three-time All-Big West performer.
