Years later, Lions' Delmas still chirping
If Louis Delmas wasn’t so good playing safety, then all of his chirping might be annoying. He was chirping even as a Lions rookie, a second-round draft pick.
But as we saw last season Delmas is not all talk.
It’s all a part of his character that hasn’t changed since he was a freshman at Western Michigan. New Lions tight end Tony Scheffler was a fifth-year senior and remembers Delmas well.
“He came in as a true freshman, green as they come, but he was chirping,’’ Scheffler said. “It was one of the things that was a welcome back, was to hear his voice chirping over there in the locker room. He hasn’t changed at all — great player.’’
Still Scheffler calls him a rookie and seems to enjoy it.
