little bit better name, Ha. I'd like a one year deal to help and mentor Corey, P-Rob, & our future draft pick. Great, mature leader and could help lite a fire in the above mentioned. We still have about $2+ mill to play with, which im sure will increase as well some way or another(restructures) to sign the draft class.

I think it would be awesome to get this guy. Of course he's not a #1 CB anymore but as a rotational player we could do a hell of a lot worse than one of the best CB's of all time. The knowledge he could impart to Lewis, White, etc. would be invaluable.

Champ In For Visit

So much for slowing down the free-agency pace now that we’ve hit April.

The New Orleans Saints stayed plenty busy on Tuesday, bringing in future Hall of Fame cornerback Champ Bailey for a visit and re-signing linebacker Parys Haralson.

Both moves make sense. Even though the Saints have been going through a bit of a youth movement this offseason, they could still use a little veteran depth on defense.

Obviously, the enthusiasm over the 35-year-old Bailey should be tempered a bit. The Denver Broncos chose to release him, and they’re in the exact same boat as the Saints -- a team going “all-in” to win right now.

Still, the idea of signing Bailey is a fascinating proposition. He’s one of the NFL’s all-time great cornerbacks, who would match wits in practice every day with another 35-year-old future Hall of Famer in quarterback Drew Brees. And if nothing else, Bailey would be a great addition to the locker room with one of the league’s rising young defenses.


Another Hall of Famer could fit with Saints - NFC South Blog - ESPN

or Bellamy. He never cleaned out his locker either

Of course age is an issue, but what about durability? He played 5 games last year.
I'd be disappointed if he got more than vet minimum and some roster and snap bonuses

We will def draft a CB in 1-3 rounds but it would be awesome if they could get some tutlidge from Champ for a year or two.
I still think we draft WR 1st and maybe even in the second too. Cornerback 2 or 3 and we re-sign Goody.

+1, GREAT player .... in his prime. He will be 36 by the time training camp starts. I think he is a back up at best. Continue with the youth movement on D.

Re: Champ Bailey @ Saints Facilities??

I'd like to see us get him. Champ Bailey is still better then Corey White and Patrick Robinson. I'd go as far as to say he's still better then Jabari Greer and Asante Samuel. He could play a little safety. He could play nickel. And you know you're getting an intelligent guy, a leader, as well as a ball hawk. We can get some one year magic out of him. What do we have to lose? It's not like he's going to break the bank.
