Champ Bailey #27

Yes, Saints cornerback Champ Bailey did ask about the possibility of taking teammate Corey White’s jersey No. 24. And no, the 16-year veteran didn’t get upset when White — whom the Saints drafted in 2012 — turned him down.
“I’m not the one to get attached to anything like that,” said Bailey, a 12-time Pro Bowler whose 52 career regular-season interceptions are the third-most among active NFL players. “It’s just a number. I’ll make the number I have look like something.”

Saints CB Champ Bailey says he can live with Corey White not giving him No. 24 jersey | Black and Gold

SP: "Corey you know you have to share. Now play nice and give him your number."
Corey: "Hell no coach!"


One thing I learned from drinking. You should always go Christmas caroling with a group. Oh, and always in mid-December.

Re: Champ Bailey #27

Corey White worked really super hard just to get to the NFL in the first place, so I could see why he would want to hang on to his own number. He fought hard to get it, he earned it, at extremely long odds to get there. Champ needs to earn his number just like everyone else. I like the way nobody on this team gets the coddled superstar treatment.

Really won't matter if Champ doesn't make the team, and won't be a problem if White doesn't.

The messed up thing about it was that "He who shall not be named" was our interception leader in 2008 with 5 picks

I've been told he was a great guy and would go out of his way to be nice to fans and the media, just not a great cornerback

I like that from Corey White. IMO, he is going to keep his starting job and have a breakout year, and 80% of the people on this board who think he sucks are going to be shocked as hell. But this kid can play. The signs are all there.

I don't think its a question of if he can play because he makes some great plays at times, he just follows those up with plays that make you think what the hell was he even doing?

E.g - made a fantastic play on the ball jumping the short route vs 49ers, runs it back 30 yards only to fumble it through the endzone and making me puke in the process

Re: Champ Bailey #27

Society puts way to much emphasis on this mythical "respect" these days. Fear of my old man is how I made it to 18 years old.. Not this mythical "respect".

Good chance White has 24 tattooed somewhere and that is why he said no.

If it's no big deal to Bailey then it's no big deal to me.
