Jim Harbaugh on Louis Delmas: 'I really liked him'

Ezra Shaw

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh came away with a positive impression of Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas after meeting him last week.

Before safety Louis Delmas re-signed with the Detroit Lions, he took visits with the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers. It looked like the Lions were going to lose Delmas since he was taking visits, but he ended up deciding to stay with them in the end.

At the league meetings in Arizona this week, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about Delmas, and he had some really positive things to say about their meeting. From the Lions' official site:

"I really liked him," Harbaugh said Sunday. "I spent some time with him. I really enjoyed being around him. He knows football. He knows the game. I can see the guy becoming a heck of a coach.

"Detroit offered more and got him back."

As we found out on Wednesday, the Lions may have offered more, but Delmas will only get it if he can stay healthy. His contract includes incentives for playing time, so the potential to earn more is there. For Delmas to actually hit those incentives, he needs to prove he can stay healthy and be in the lineup on a consistent basis.
