Free safety is a very logical move, and as long as his health holds up could easily be among the league leaders in interceptions. Now if for some reason he really doesn't have anything left, I am sure that would be exposed during training camp and the team can simply release him at that point.
Correct me if I am wrong but don't we have enough nickles to nearly make a dollar?

A lot of names get thrown out and 90% of the replies are: He can play nickle, he would bring leadership... Leadership is one person and we don't need a pocket full of nickles. We have a handle on stopping the run, we need shut down corners...

Re: Champ Bailey - Future Saints Free Safety?

man I don't think champ has legs left, he totally got burnt big time like Jason david big time. safety may be better fit at his age. but on the cheap, I don't see that, he won't play for less than 2 mill a year. were safe we won't get him.

Well, Charles Woodson was a CB that moved to FS later in his career and he played well at the free safety spot. I don't see why Champ can't do the same.
