It was an honor to have played with Champ. He will be missed.— Ben Garland (@BenGarland63) March 6, 2014
Champ Bailey released. Devin Hester whacked. Top 3 Corner ever. And the GOAT of return men. #BlackWednesday— Jim Rome (@jimrome) March 6, 2014
Broncos will cut Champ Bailey. Really hope he gets his due as a first-ballot HOF. Deserves it.— Frank Schwab (@YahooSchwab) March 6, 2014
Gonna miss Champ. Bailey pure class on and off the field.— Rod Mackey (@Rod9sports) March 6, 2014
Fairly amazing day. Champ Bailey, Devin Hester--both will get HoF consideration--whacked. Tough business.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) March 6, 2014
Champ Bailey was my favorite Bronco. I won't follow him to another team though.— The Orange Page (@theorangepage) March 6, 2014
Damn! Gonna miss you Champ! Wish you could have gone out on top!
If I feel a little bit hurt about it, you know it's a big deal, I'm a cold blooded bastard. Damn I wish we woulda taken care of Seattle— Mike G (@Bronco_Mike251) March 6, 2014
This is when the business really sucks.
Always going to respect champ. He was classy even when he could have shown otherwise. Hope he leaves in good terms and has an option to come back. Love the guy. The pick against New Orleans in the end zone is still one of the most athletic plays I’ve ever seen anyone make.
@MileHighReport I said this two weeks ago and was blasted for saying it. Now look what happened. It's sad but it was time.— Danielle Andrade (@Ndrameda81) March 6, 2014
I'm glad to see this
Love Champ and what he did and meant to this Franchise, but it’s time to move on.
Really sad a guy like Champ Bailey get cut, but it was the right move for the #Broncos. Next man up.— Jon Heath (@JonHeathNFL) March 6, 2014

@MileHighReport DRC is a must sign now with Champ leaving— Pat Blackmon (@JohnDoe_24) March 6, 2014
Saw this coming
I'll always remember his 99 yard Int return in the 2006 Playoffs. He was one of the best. I wish him well and expect to see him in the Hall of Fame/Ring of Fame.
@MileHighReport Sad but proves Elway is not afraid to make tough decisions to win.— Rock Strongo (@DrKrusher) March 6, 2014
@MileHighReport Such a sad development.— lance Philippi (@broncolover88) March 6, 2014
@MileHighReport He deserved another year, it'll come back and bite us in the ass.— Lois Gribble (@broncomaniac47) March 6, 2014
Thank you Mr. Bailey. You've been one of the consistent bright shining stars on this football team during the dark days of this last decade. I'm sorry we couldn't get you that ring this year.
@MileHighReport it really does suck— Bridgette (@Bingelish) March 6, 2014
Sad day for #BroncosCountry. We knew it was coming. Champ has been a true professional. Feels like losing a best friend.— 303Wes (@303Wes) March 6, 2014
@MileHighReport It's tough. Champ is a Broncos legend, but it's what it best for business. I trust John, but still salute Champ!!!— Pac (@Lakeraholic) March 6, 2014
Champ Bailey's greatness can't be defined through stats alone. Week after week, he eliminated 1/2 of the field. Just an amazing player.— Chris Dberg (@ChrisDberg1) March 6, 2014
A sad day. Thanks for everything, Champ. First ballot hall of famer, no doubt.
