Saints sign Bailey to two-year contract
NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Saints announced Friday that they'd agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Champ Bailey for a two-year contract.
Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said he believed Bailey would add to their defense, calling him a "prideful and competitive" future Hall of Fame contender.
Bailey, a 15-year NFL veteran, played with the Broncos for the last 10 seasons. He was traded to Denver after spending his first five seasons with the Washington Redskins.
Bailey's 12 career Pro Bowl selections trail only Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Reggie White (13) among defensive players in NFL history, and tie for the sixth most overall.
