Lions bring back Louis Delmas

Posted by Mike Florio on March 15, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

Some thought that the addition of safety Glover Quin would slam the door on the Lions bringing back safety Louis Delmas.

And yet he’s back anyway.

The veteran signed a two-year, $9.465 million contract, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Delmas had visited the Rams and 49ers before staying with the team that picked him in the second round of the 2009 draft.


Nearly $5M per year for an injury prone player seems a bit much to me, but it is what it is.

I would have rather signed someone more stable, even if they were less talented. At least we have Quin as well.

Delmas/Quin (IF healthy) would make our secondary much better. I like the fact it is just a two year deal.

I haven't seen the contract details yet, but they better include weekly roster bonuses. Signing Delmas for that amount without them makes no sense. Then again, we're talking about the Lions.

Agree. Any chance they both start?

I hope the bulk of that 5 Million is incentives. But, glad to know that Delmas is smart enough to tuck his tail and come home, unlike one Mr Avril.

One is a FS and the other a SS, so yes.

Oh ok I was thinking Quin was a FS.

Sorry to go off topic, but something bothers me here. I started this thread about Delmas re-signing, but there isn't a single thread about Bush, Quin, Jones, or Houton signing. Why is that? I leave this board for a FEW MONTHS and nothing gets done right. :wink:

Honestly we've all been waiting for you to come back and clean everything up (and dirty up the off topic section).

I'm sure they set the contract up the right way--that's Lewand's area, not Mayhew's anyways. If he stays healthy, we have a pretty intimidating safety combo!

Post Re: Lions re-sign Delmas
Yeah I saw that number and it has to be the total value of the contract IF Delmas stays healthy or IF he reaches certain playing time incentives. If it's just straight $5M a year it's a waste. Not that I'm not glad he's back but until he plays a full season he's not worth all that money.

While I appreciate your concern for my tardiness, working 8-12 hours per day, 6-7 days per week has something to do with it.

I would be willing to bet Delmas sees every penny of the deal. Even if he's hurt they're still going to bring him back for a 2014 campaign, unless they severely back-loaded the deal.

What's the guess on guaranteed money? I'm saying $4M with a low salary this year, say $1M, making his total cap hit this year $3ish, and $4M due next year. We'd save $2M cutting him next year, but we'll keep him because the possibility of having a "good" starting caliber S for cheap is "worth" $4M.

That's how I see it playing out...
