Delmas hopes to get Erik Coleman up to speed

Louis Delmas needs a partner at safety and he’s doing his best in the offseason to work out the situation.

Delmas, who was slowed down most of last season with a serious groin injury, had offseason surgery and expects to be 100 percent when training camp opens whenever that may be.

He trains in Miami, his home, while waiting for the lockout to be lifted. And this offseason he’s been working out with Erik Coleman, who signed as a free agent with the Lions before the lockout.

Not only do they work out, but Delmas said last week he’s hoping they can start watching film, so Delmas can bring Coleman up to speed on the Lions’ defensive scheme.

Coleman, a veteran, is expected to compete for the starting spot at safety along with Amari Spievey, who was moved from cornerback to safety last year in his rookie season.

Delmas said he is in daily contact with Spievey who couldn’t make it to the Lions workouts last week because of issues at home.

>P> Coleman was there meeting his new teammates.

Spievey technically/statistically had a better year than Delmas last season..Safety could be nice and deep with Coleman...or Spievey could go back to CB...I just hope Amari excels at whichever he does.
