With every passing day, it is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore Will Demps. His coaches can swear to that, as they promoted the once long-shot third-string safety to co-starter. Demps, who has an interception in each of the two preseason games, is now part of a three-man rotation with Anthony Mitchell and Ed Reed.
