Report: Champ Bailey visiting the Saints

Could Bailey be heading to New Orleans?

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

This afternoon ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted out that former Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey is visiting the New Orleans Saints, and could visit another team if talks with the Saints don't go well.

This is Champs first known visit, and it sounds like it will be an upset if he doesn't sign there.

The Saints do have a major hole at corner opposite of starter Keenan Lewis, but it would be risky business going with the soon to be 36 year old Bailey who was limited to only 193 snaps last season as your starter. At the very least Bailey would give the Saints some much needed depth at the position, as well as some veteran leadership.

Bailey is open to playing safety, but the Saints already have their starters in Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro. It's possible Bailey could be used a "jack of all trades" reserve who could play all over the secondary.

Good luck Champ!

Go Broncos!
