Saints News, 2/27/14: Free Agent Safety Louis Delmas Visits Saints

New, comments

Delmas, 26, was a second-round selection by the Lions in the 2009 NFL draft. He started 64 games for the Lions with 331 tackles, two forced fumbles and six interceptions. He was named a Pro Bowl alternate in 2010 and 2011. However, he has dealt with knee problems his entire career but was able to start every game in 2013 for the first time. Delmas was a salary cap casualty for the Lions this offseason. Could this be an indication that the Saints aren't all that interested in re-signing Malcolm Jenkins?
