Hard-hitting strong safety with a propensity for getting injured. Sound like anyone? Early in his career Louis Delmas could be compared to Bob Sanders because of his hard-hitting ability. Now the comparison exists because of his injury history. However, unlike Bob, Delmas is only 25 years old and will most likely be a free agent on March 12. A player like Delmas simply won't have much leverage when it comes to contract negotiations, so he won't be looking for a "break-the-bank" long term deal. If a successful franchise like the Colts offers him a short term contract and gives him a chance to prove his worth, I believe he would take that deal.
From the Colts' perspective, signing Delmas would be a great upgrade over the current Strong Safeties Tom Zbikowski and Joe Lefeged. Even if Delmas gets injured and misses significant playing time, it won't hurt the Colts contract-wise. In other words, Delmas is a low-risk, high-reward player that the Colts should pursue.
