Or his visit could be primarily about squeezing Clark and/or Polamalu into accepting whatever offer the Steelers currently have on the table.

If we get him hell obviously start. I would rather start shamarko and have him learn on the field at a young age than at backup for a while.

Shamarko would take over at SS for Troy next season, and be the fifth DB in the nickel this season (as he was last season).

Delmas would be the FS.

We could probably get Nick Collins cheap. It's worth a shot to try him out in training camp and see how he does.

I read Bouchette on Twitter said that the Steelers are just doing their due diligence. He said Delmas has a bad knee? Other than that, could be a good signing if healthy.

It would be a great singing imo not sure about long term but long enough(1-2 years) until we find a replacement(this years draft)

Ex-Lions DB Louis Delmas visiting Pittsburgh Steelers

By Marc Sessler
Around the League Writer
Published: Feb. 17, 2014

In 19 games last season, the Seattle Seahawks picked off a league-leading 32 passes. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers have intercepted 31 -- over the past three years.

Improving a drooping secondary looms as a must this offseason, and the Steelers aren't wasting any time.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Louis Delmas is visiting with the team Monday, per a source informed of the player's plans. The Detroit Lions would like to re-sign the safety after releasing him last week, but Delmas is intent to test the market.

While Steelers president Art Rooney II has made it his "goal" to keep Troy Polamalu in Pittsburgh until the All-Pro retires, we don't expect 34-year-old safety Ryan Clark to return. Delmas -- ranked 26th at his position last season, per Pro Football Focus -- has experience at both strong and free safety, but the distinction between those two roles has grown increasingly nebulous in many of the league's defensive schemes.

What a Delmas signing would give the Steelers is another athletic, every-down player who started in all 16 games for Detroit one season ago. Lingering knee issues make him far from a sure bet to stay on the field -- or possibly secure a big-money deal -- but at 26, Delmas is one of the league's hardest-hitting defensive backs.

If he doesn't land in Pittsburgh, he'll find a starting job somewhere else before it's all said and done.

James C Wexell ‏@jimwexell:

No doubt Steelers prefer to not have rookie playing FS next yr. Free agent would allow them to focus on CB early in draft instead.

Just wrote about the Steelers' problem at free safety today bc of all the SSs they have. To that end they checked Louis Delmas' knee today.

Delmas is a solid player. He's no Ed Reed but he could be a great contributor here. He's carried the Lions secondary his entire career with about as little help as possible, in our system he could be much more successful.

I love this move as Clark needs to go but his replacement won't be ready for a few years and our championship window with Ben could be closed by then. He's a far better option than Allen or Golden. The health concerns may be legitimate but I hope we can find a way to get this done.
