Louis Delmas is officially back with the Miami Dolphins after signing a one-year deal worth up $3.5 million deal Friday, per ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Albert Breer. But will Delmas, who tore his ACL in December 2014, be field-ready when the 2015 season begins in September?
According to Delmas, yes. Yes, he will.
Delmas after re-signing with the Dolphins told the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley that his knee rehab is "going great," and he'll be ready for the start of the season. That's great news for a Miami safety group that was already shallow prior to Delmas' injury last December. Of course, the question becomes whether Delmas can stay healthy and play all 16 games next season--something he's done only once during his six-year NFL career.
Should he be ready for the start of the season, Delmas will likely rejoin Reshad Jones in Miami's secondary, providing the Dolphins with some much-needed "oomph" at the safety position.
