The Detroit Lions will release safety Louis Delmas on Thursday, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

BEDARD: Studying Michael Sam’s game tape

Delmas, who has only played for the Lions in his five-year career, recorded 49 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks last season while starting every game. Delmas is the second notable player Detroit has cut today, after wide receiver Nate Burleson.

Cutting the pair will save the team about $11.5 million in cap space.


Louis could never stay healthy though I loved his zeal. Nate never-ever lived up yo what we all hoped for though he seemed like a great guy. Both solid men, too bad for us Lion fans. Wish a Petti"drop" would get traded/cut...
