New Orleans Saints CB Champ Bailey has been released.
Huddle Up: Bailey was beaten out for a roster spot by undrafted rookie Brian Dixon. Once considered arguably the best CB in the NFL, Bailey is now at the end of his career and could consider retirement.

New Orleans Saints CB Champ Bailey is not guaranteed to make the final roster.
Huddle Up: The 12-time Pro Bowler, who turned 36 in June, clearly has lost a step or two and is battling a crop of relative youngsters, including second-round pick Stanley Jean-Baptiste, for position on the depth chart. He only recorded 12 passes defenses and 2 interceptions over his final 2 seasons in Denver.

The New Orleans Saints are hosting free-agent CB Champ Bailey (Broncos) for a visit Tuesday, April 1, according to a source. Bailey may come back for another visit depending on how talks go.
Huddle Up: It's been quiet on the Bailey front since the Broncos cut ties with the 35-year-old CB last month, and it's hard to envision the 12-time Pro Bowler as anything more than a nickel corner going forward.

The Denver Broncos officially released CB Champ Bailey Thursday, March 6.
Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 36-year-old DB had a great 10-year run in the Mile High City, and it was simply time for the two sides to part with Bailey due $10 million his coming season. He should find a suitor at a much lower pricetag, but his future most likely lies at safety rather than on the corner.

Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey (foot) said Saturday, Jan. 18, that he does not expect to be limited in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots, and he is not expected to have any restrictions. '(The pitch count) doesn't exist this week,' Bailey said. 'Whatever it takes.'
Huddle Up: This has been the roughest season of Bailey's Hall of Fame career. The CB missed all 5 games due to a preseason foot injury, but the 35-year-old CB is one win away from his first Super Bowl appearance, so expect a championship effort Sunday.
