Louis Delmas rumors: Rams targeting safety

USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Rams are pursuing the former Detroit Lions safety.

Looking to make an upgrade at the safety position, the St. Louis Rams are interested in signing Louis Delmas, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.


Delmas already has a connection to the Rams coaching staff, as new St. Louis defensive coordinator Tim Walton coached Delmas as the defensive backs coach in Detroit. In his four years as a member of the Lions, Delmas has been among the most talented safeties in the league when healthy.

Over the last two seasons, Delmas missed 13 games. Last season a knee injury limited him to just eight games. The Lions have been worried about his health, making them reluctant to re-sign him. Delmas has taken that reluctance as a slight, saying, "the Lions are cheating on me."

At only 25, Delmas is a young safety with a promising future if he can stay on the field. The Rams must replace both starting safety positions and Delmas could be a good start.
