Saints hosting Louis Delmas

With Roman Harper gone and Kenny Vaccaro recovering from a serious ankle injury, the Saints could use some help at safety.

Likewise, safety Malcolm Jenkins, a first-round pick of the Saints in 2009, is due to become a free agent on March 11.  And safety Rafael Bush will be a restricted free agent.

Enter former Lions safety Louis Delmas.  Per a league source, Delmas is visiting the Saints today.

Cut earlier this month by the Lions, the 2009 second-round pick also has visited the Steelers.  The Lions would like to re-sign Delmas at a lower rate, but he wants to explore his options first.

    Cannot be worse than Harper. It’s simply not possible.

    But will he be better than Raphael Bush?

    I mean, everybody loves Bush, Raphael that is. The way he knocks dudes out of the game is really fun to watch ask (Amendola and Percy if they like Bush). But he’s only a back-up, situational type of player. Believe me Louis Delmas is a great player. And the reasons I hope we sign him are because we pick too late to get Ha-Ha or Pryor and Jarius Byrd is way too much $$$, plus he’ll get tagged anyway.

    You are crazy if you think the lions are tagging him, simply can’t afford to play an injury prone player top three money. This guy sucks against the pass, takes the worst angle

    People that knock Harper fail to remember the seasons where he was top 3 on the team in sacks and tackles for loss. As well as top 5 in tackles. A safety shouldn’t be having those types of numbers if the rest of the defense is functional. Harper and Jenkins both spend a lot of time in duties that aren’t necessarily coverage. I think before long the Saints will miss Harper and need to get serious about keeping Jenkins around

    The only reason Harper had that many tackles was #1 he was the weak link of the defense. He was always picked on because he could NOT cover. Now as a blitzing Safety he was good. #2 that’s how he got alot of tackles and sacks. As far as missing him if it wasn’t for Vaccaro defending the pass against Gonzales in game 1 the Saints would have been 0-1 instead of 1-0. That INT at the end by Harper didnt mean much because the ball was on its way to the ground which is where Harper normally is on pass plays. Don’t believe me? Watch the last play of Saints vs. Falcons week 1, the very last play. As far as Jenkins, he is Harper, Jr.
