this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Looks like he not exactly lighting it up and has missed the last 2 practices to injury. I think he is going to retire before the season starts. If so do you trust P-Rob or do you think we try ...

Champ Bailey

Looks like he not exactly lighting it up and has missed the last 2 practices to injury. I think he is going to retire before the season starts.
If so do you trust P-Rob or do you think we try and bring someone else in at least for backup. I hear P-Rob is looking decent.

Re: Champ Bailey

Is he injured or just resting? I have seen nothing about him being injured

To answer your question; P-Rob/White will fight for the #2... I doubt we bring anyone else in

Re: Champ Bailey

He was a no-show at practice and Payton refused to answer questions about it

Re: Champ Bailey

Wow on the Bailey thing.

To answer the question I trust P-Rob, if he's healthy I strongly believe he can almost as good as Keenan. Go back and look at the last season he played in a man-to-man scheme, he was easily our best corner. He was also our best corner all through last preseason and was starting to take snaps away from Greer when he got hurt.

Re: Champ Bailey

At his age injuries occur more often....whether it's an old injury that reoccurs or the wear and tear catches up to you. I never expected to see him spending that much time out there. He will see a lot of rotation snaps but will be kept fresh for the long run. Payton brings the older players along at a different pace than the young guns.

Re: Champ Bailey

Yeah I've heard he's getting beat quite a bit in coverage. P Rob supposedly is looking great and Rob Ryan's defense is a perfect fit for him so I'm willing to have condidence in Robinson.

Re: Champ Bailey

Jeff Duncan posted this @nola.com:

"Just while I was chatting our photographer, Michael DeMocker, found a photo from yesterday's workout that captures a sequence where it appears Bailey rolled his right foot under Nick Toon at the end of a play. Pure speculation but it certainly looks like the kind of play where he might have been injured. He apparently played one more down after and was not seen on the field again so it's a fairly good assumption...."

Re: Champ Bailey

I'm sure Bailey will make the roster. We don't need him to be an every down corner. He needs to come in on pass plays, float, and pick off balls.

Comment by Jeff Duncan, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune on I...
@Dalikern I have no clue as to the status of his absence or potential injury. But I'd be surprised if he doesn't make the team. The Saints will have a role for him by the end of camp. My guess is they'd like him to be a hybrid, third CB in sub packages. Patrick Robinson is clearly the starting CB opposite Lewis at this point.
