Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com believes the Falcons could be intrigued by possibly adding free agent safety Louis Delmas.
Don’t be surprise if the Falcons investigate the possibility of adding free-agent safety Louis Delmas, who was cut by the Detroit Lions. Delmas became a cap casualty as he was set to count $6.5 million against the Lions’ cap this season.
Delmas, represented by Drew Rosenhaus, is sure to draw interest from a number of teams. He started 64 games after entering the league as a second-round pick for the Lions in 2009 out of Western Michigan.
The Falcons are looking for veteran help at safety in the form of a sure tackler and guy capable of making plays on the ball. Thomas DeCoud has had trouble tackling, leaving his future with the Falcons in doubt. DeCoud, a Pro Bowler in 2012, has a cap number of $4.8 million in 2014 and has three years left on his contract.
Delmas is a good player, but can’t stay healthy due to a degenerate knee condition.
