#Saints have agreed to 2-year deal with CB Champ Bailey, per source.



Cornerback Champ Bailey will be joining the New Orleans Saints roster.

WWL Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic confirms the team and the defensive back have agreed on a two-year deal.
Garic says it is a smart move by the Saints.

"Bailey, has played in the league for 15 years, and while his best football might be behind him, he's still a valuable player to a young defensive secondary. He'll fit right in with Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan's pressing defense. Realistically I think the Saints will carve out a specific role for Bailey in the nickel defense," our sideline reporter said.

Garic also likes the way things are shaping up for the Saints in the NFL Draft.

Happy with that.
Vaccaro, Byrd, Lewis and Bailey should lead to loads of interceptions. Id love to see a good CB or Mosley in the draft to round off a stunning backfield

Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

I like the move assuming we got him for the right price. He will at the very least help coach up any young CBs we get in the draft and might even have a Sharper type effect. I think he is still better than average.
Without all the rape of course.

Re: Saints sign Champ Bailey

At 35 is he still able to start or is this just a mentor/depth move?

Grahams tag salary is already factored in; my guess is that he plays under the tag this year and gets a deal done next year when the cap goes up...
