Champ Bailey to Saints

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...s-and-reaction

Champ Bailey is heading to the New Orleans Saints after the veteran defensive back reached a two-year deal following his release from the Denver Broncos.

Bailey is coming off the least productive season of his illustrious career. He played in just five games during the regular season due to a foot injury. When he did try to play through the pain in the playoffs, he didn't perform anything like the top cornerback he has always been.

The Broncos decided to move in another direction to save cap room rather than hope the 35-year-old star could bounce back in 2014. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported the team was saving $10 million by making the move:

In turn, Bailey hit the market at an inopportune time. Despite his status as one of the best defensive backs of his generation, teams are more worried about the immediate past than an entire career track record while searching to fill a void.

As Pro Football Focus noted, even when he was healthy during his final season with the Broncos he played mostly in the slot

When asked to move outside, he didn't display the same range or elite cover skills that were on full display during his prime. It leaves plenty of questions about what type of player he can be in 2014 and beyond.

Now Bailey will get a chance to prove him right. Exactly what role he'll have is unclear at the outset. He obviously has corner experience on both the inside and out, but a move to safety could also be in the cards, giving him a chance to use those ball-hawking instincts.

As long as he stays healthy, there's a good chance he'll be productive. Perhaps he won't perform at the same level as he did in his tremendous peak seasons with the Broncos, but he'll definitely fare better than he did in his final season with the team. It could take him a little while to adapt if he switches positions, though.

Whatever Bailey does in the remaining portion of his career won't do much to change his lasting legacy unless it's something positive like capturing a Super Bowl title.

This looks like a good thread for the question, "In what year was Champ Bailey last an elite cornerback?" 2010?

Terribad signing. He was forced to play the slot last year because of diminishing skills. It's only going to get worse at 35.

If he were to make the switch to safety I'm assuming it would be FS, but I can't see him getting much playing time there with Jairus Byrd holding it down. Dude just doesn't have much left in the tank at his age.

I'm going to say this is a bad signing by the Saints.

Well, we don't know what they are paying him.
