49ers can check Delmas off list of safety candidates

The 49ers can check Louis Delmas off their list of candidates to replace Dashon Goldson at safety.

Delmas, 25, has reportedly re-signed with the Detroit Lions, who gave their 2009 second-round draft pick a new two year contract.

The 49ers visited with former Green Bay Packers safety Charles Woodson on Wednesday in Santa Clara. Woodson has expressed interest in returning to the Bay Area - he played his first eight seasons in Oakland - to play with a Super Bowl contender.

Baltimore Ravens free agent safety Ed Reed is also available. Reed visited with the Houston Texans for two days, but left the team's headquarters today without a contract.
