Louis Delmas could be cut by the Detroit Lions

The good: Glover Quin might have been the best free agent signing the club made in the offseason. He was a reliable, calming presence and rarely made mistakes. Plus, he’s a high-character guy who has been on a winner. His three interceptions tied a career-high, and his two sacks were a career high. After struggling initially, Don Carey proved to be a competent nickel back by the end of the season. Louis Delmas played in every game for the first time in his career and had a career-best three interceptions. He also, at least until the final games of the year, appeared to play much more in control.

The bad: Delmas would sometimes play out of control, and by the end of the season appeared to be out of position a lot against the run and pass. His helmet-to-helmet hit on teammate Bill Bentley knocked Bentley out of the game against the New York Giants. Detroit struggled against the big play and deep pass for a lot of the season, and the safeties are the last line of defense there.
