The St. Louis Rams need secondary help and could be targeting Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas. There haven’t been many rumors surrounding Delmas and the Rams are the first team he’s been linked too.
“Indications are that Rams are targeting Louis Delmas at safety,” Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted.
I had the St. Louis Rams looking at University of Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro in the first round of the NFL Draft, but if they were to sign Delmas that wouldn’t be the case anymore. Safety and the secondary in general are major needs for St. Louis.
Last free agency the Rams, and new head coach Jeff Fisher, brought in former Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan. But despite that void in their defense he’d have to take an incentive-laden deal. He has battled injuries through out his career in the NFL.
But Louis Delmas won’t likely stay with the Detroit Lions as he feels burned by the organization.
“I almost feel like a girlfriend waiting at home that’s got a boyfriend that’s cheating on her,” said Delmas, who would prefer to remain a Lion. “But it is what it is. I’m trying to see if I can stay at home and get a couple more years out of him.
“The Lions are cheating on me. They’re going to the club every damn night and staying out late night, trying to come back home to Daddy. But it’s all right.”
