Report: Lions re-sign Louis Delmas

Friday March 15th, 2013

The Detroit Lions have brought back veteran Louis Delmas, per a source with knowledge of the situation. The safety signed a two-year, $9.47 million contract. Delmas had visited the Rams and 49ers, and there was even an erroneous report that Delmas had signed with San Francisco.

However, reports are now confirming that Delmas will remain with the team that picked him in the draft in 2009. When healthy, Delmas has been a valuable asset to Detroit. Over four seasons, he's had three interceptions, 16 pass breakups, three sacks, and two forced fumbles. Delmas has also been plagued with  various injuries for the past two seasons, missing a total of 13 games.
