Saints sign Champ Bailey

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's washed up but he's also one of the best CB's of all time so I guess it can't hurt to have him for depth. His invaluable knowledge will be the most useful part....

Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

Something tells me he will either be our nickel corner or play 3rd safety in Rob's 3 safety sets

He's not what he used to be, but that does not mean he is "washed up".

If this means we can't afford to sign Rafael Bush now then I'm really opposed to it.

In Ryan I trust. lol

Minimize Champ's weaknesses and use his strenghts. (Rob proved that he is quite good at it)

Can't trust Bailey, age, injuries...
We will. They know he is not a long term solution. They probably brought him in as much for his knowledge as much as whatever talent he has left.
He will be good for all our QBs

2 year deal is surprising.

I'd rather have Jabari Greer back, provided that he's healthy.



But having said all this, I hope Champ Bailey rocks! Sort of like he-who-must-not-be-named rocked when we signed him as a free agent in '09. You know what I mean.

Lookem up again.

Played in games:
6
7
12
15
16
17
18
19


I count 8, thats 3 more in a season than Joe Morgan has played in in the last 3 years.

Dont agree myself
The team obviously put a value on what they were willing to pay Bush. Had they really neen desperate to keep him and felt he was worth more they would have tendered him at round two level for 700k more.

There was never any chance of bringing Bush back once he signed the offer sheet with Atlanta.
