Lions Cut Louis Delmas Hope To Re-sign Safety

Louis Delmas was released by the Lions on Thursday. The Lions hope to come to terms with the safety again at a lower rate after he tests the market.

Along with wide receiver Nate Burleson, starting safety Louis Delmas was told by the organization that he will be released. The team has spoke out and said that they would like to re-sign Delmas soon but at a reduced salary. Delmas was given a two-year extension in 2012, but was owed $6 million the Lions obviously thought he was just not worth.

Delmas is expected to test the market before coming to terms on a new contract with the Lions. It does not seem likely that Delmas will get the money he was expected to get in 2014 by the Lions but he may want to go to a new city.

Delmas has suffered from injuries since coming into the league. 2013 was just the first season in which Delmas played in every game of the season. Since 2009, Delmas has missed 15 games due to injuries.

The fifth-year veteran has registered a combined 331 tackles, 24 pass deflections, and six interceptions. Will the Lions be able to get Delmas back?

    Where does he stand now? Haven’t heard about him recently /// Injury prone but a talent anyway that hope the Lions can recover. He competes hard, has heart – but does he really want to stay in Detroit? Unfortunately, money speaks for these athletes and if he gets what he wants and another team will take the chance that he could be productive – ??? who knows….
