Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

Hope he can stay healthy and contribute. I think he could still be decent in man-to-man coverage.

"CB Champ Bailey’s 2-year deal in New Orleans can be worth as much as $7M, source says. The #Saints have given him some guaranteed money"

Hope he can add some more of these to his highlight reel while wearing the Black & Gold!

Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

Said it before, I'll say it again, Champ Bailey is still better then Greer, White, and Robinson right now at this stage in his career. He was hurt all last year. And the year before that he still had a pretty great year. It wasn't the epic Champ Bailey of old, but it was equivalent too or better than the year Lewis just had. I'm all for the youth movement, but this still is a good signing

Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

And it's not the only injury Denver's dealing with -- Champ Bailey also has a foot sprain, the team announced on Sunday.

Bailey's injury appears to be worse -- NFL.com reports that the Pro Bowl cornerback is dealing with a "serious" type of sprain and that he "faces a recovery timeline of several weeks."

Champ told the Denver Post that he suffered the sprain during Saturday night's loss to the Seahawks when a Seattle player pushed his foot off of Bailey's.

Wes Welker has ankle sprain, Champ Bailey has foot sprain - CBSSports.com
This also may help plain why he looked awful last year...

Chris XVI agreed but I'll add to your thoughts...

We have a solid front 4, 2 YOUNG gifts at DE bringing pressure, add a solid SS in Vacarro, ball hawk @ FS in JByrd and a strong #1 corner in KLewis. Champ is older but he has TON of support to be good. What helps out a secondary? ... A strong pass rush.

Baring any major injuries the Saints are gonna be a scary defense in 2014. Bailey won't have to be great ...just good.

This could be the year to bring that prize back to New Orleans.

If he returns to that 2012 level, I just don't know what to say.

Greatest Saints secondary ever (on paper)?

Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

In 2013, the 6-0, 192 pounder appeared in five regular season games with three starts for the Broncos as he missed 11 games with a foot injury. He posted 14 tackles (12 solo) and three passes defensed. He appeared in all three postseason games for Denver with two starts, including Super Bowl XLVII and recorded 11 solo tackles.
Apparently his foot was feeling better in the Super-bowl... Looks like we have a secondary great at tackling now

EDIT: May have read that wrong, 11 solo tackles in 2 games not the superbowl
