Players Thrilled With Champ Signing

One thing is for sure. Champ Bailey's new teammates with the New Orleans Saints are fired up about the arrival of the 12-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Famer.

Several of the Saints’ players expressed their excitement to play alongside one of the NFL’s all-time great defensive backs, via social media. Here’s a sampling:

I have to assume Vaccaro was referring to White losing his jersey No. 24 to Bailey, who wears the same number. I’m guessing there will be some sort of transaction that takes place in the coming days in that department.
Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis also weighed in via Instagram, saying, “It's going to be a honor to learn from one of the best, I would learn as much as possible.”

Earlier in the week, Lewis sent out a picture of himself with Bailey on Instagram, saying, “My dream was to always meet this guy and I finally did. Amen God and thankyou. A real legend. Champ Bailey.”

He is definitely going to be a great locker room guy and a great mentor for our younger DB's, if he can make a big impact then that just sweetens the deal!

I have my skepticism but seeing how our own guys are so excited about this signing I can't help but feel good about it!

I guess they are thrilled. Who wouldn't want Bailey on their team?
