Re: Champ Bailey @ Saints Facilities??

I'm all about the youth movement we have going on but hey, remember Darren Sharper? Different position I know but still, they thought he was washed up too and we got one heckuva year outa him. Maybe a change of scenery will rejuvenate Champ. If Mickey & Sean think he still has something left and sign him, then I'm on board.

Re: Champ Bailey @ Saints Facilities??

Champ Bailey as our senior security blanket? dam that would be nice. even at the rip old age of 36 he would really push for playing time and add him into the mentor role would be worth it's weight in gold.

Plus the saints seem to always include a veteran DB some where each year for spot duty and what i think is more of a mentoring role than anything else.

Champ Bailey @ Saints Facilities??

I have a great friend that is a die hard Bronco's fan. The tank is empty, and Champ is a huge liability in coverage.

Robinson
Sweeting
Wade
Greer
Carr
White
All graded out better in 2013.

His run defense grading is worse, looks like he doesn't want to hit anymore.

I would have loved getting him 5 years ago but now I don't know. last year he looked like the years had finally caught up to him.

Re: Champ Bailey @ Saints Facilities??

Look, I love the idea. We need a VET. A respected VET. Who do we have to fill those shoes?

Vilma is gone.

I live in Cheeseland and this past year was the first year I did not have any of my heart or soul with the Packers. I seriously had a bitter taste in my mouth when they released two leaders, Driver and Woodson.
I am allowed to have a second favorite team in the NFC.
(Note: I am still open to nominations and I am leaning Chicago.)

There is always room for a Vet to mentor the class below.

I only pray his maturity understands the market value of his aging skill set on the field.

Keep in mind, Reggie White was 36 when he finally played in a playoff game and helped carry home the Lombardi trophy.

Snap, placement, kick by Hartley, and it is — AND IT'S GOOD!
IT'S GOOD! IT'S GUH-HUH-HOOD! Ha ha ha! Pigs have flown! Hell has frozen over! The Saints are on their way to the Super Bowl!

Yes, a guy can still contribute at 36, but Bailey didn't contribute much at 35. White had dropped off quite a bit at 36 also.
If Bailey can play, great. Bring him in cheap. if not, I am happy with the veteran leadership of Lewis and Lofton. Vilma wasn't a presence last year and we were fine.

Re: Champ Bailey @ Saints Facilities??

with the last 2 CFL signings I think Bailey for sure would be an all around back up and will provide a lot of experience for the younger guys.
