It looks at though the Fins like the cheap guy..Has Culver done anything on special teams but maybe a tackle or so to earn a Mil more than Restelli who I saw almost pick off a pass in mop up duty..Thoughts?

Restelli signed with the Edmonton Eskimos on April 29, 2009, after attending an Eskimos free-agent tryout camp in Long Beach, California.[3][4] After the release of Derrick Doggett on June 10,[5] Restelli's main competition for the starting weakside linebacker spot[6] is fellow import rookie Tumbo Abanikanda.[7] Restelli debuted for Edmonton on June 17 in a preseason game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders and recorded one tackle and an interception while Abanikanda recorded three tackles.[8] Eskimos head coach Richie Hall has called Restelli and Abanikanda's battle the closest one in camp so far.

After going unselected in the 2009 NFL draft, Restelli attended an open CFL tryout in Long Beach and got an invitation to Eskimos camp. Edmonton saw how Restelli was a "tweener," running a 40-yard dash as quickly (4.4 seconds) and jumping as high (40-inch vertical) as defensive backs and hitting as hard (skeleton-rattling) as the beefier linebackers.
