Because of the uncertain status of safety Louis Delmas, the Lions are going to have question marks in the secondary.
They tried to provide a short-term answer Monday. According to Tim Twentyman of the team’s official website, the Lions have signed veteran safety Chris Hope.
Hope played in all 16 games for the Falcons last year, starting four. He’s also played for the Steelers and Titans, but hasn’t been a regular starter since 2010.
Delmas’ troublesome knee limited him during the spring, though no one has said much about his prognosis. Hope at least gives them a smart veteran for cover until they know more.
