Expect one of these guys on the New Orleans Saints’ roster in 2014

This year’s draft crop at cornerback is the deepest its been in years, so much so that there is a distinct possibility that five (if not six) of them could be drafted in the first round. And one of those first-rounders could land in New Orleans. Despite recently signing veteran back Champ Bailey to a two year deal, the Saints still have to seriously consider using their first pick...

New Orleans Saints hay have made a mistake signing Champ Bailey

In case you missed our coverage Friday, over the weekend, or on Monday, the New Orleans Saints and free agent cornerback Champ Bailey agreed to a two-year/$7 million contract. The 12-time Pro Bowl DB and likely future Hall of Famer is 35-years old – the same age as one Drew Brees. Much could be said about Bailey’s past accomplishments in the NFL.

New Orleans Saints: The Champ is here

Mickey Loomis is at it again. Like a teenage girl with her dad’s credit card, he continues to buy anything he pleases, despite obvious financial constraints. This time, the New Orleans Saints’ general manager worked his fiscal magic and signed well decorated cornerback Champ Bailey to a 2 year deal worth up to 7 million dollars. Everyone knows what Bailey used to be; a consummate...

Gamble on Champ Bailey could pay off big for the New Orleans Saints

With the signing of cornerback Champ Bailey on Friday, the rest of the league was dumbfounded. They kept on wondering how Mickey Loomis is still making things work (because no one seems to get that Jimmy Graham’s cap hit is A: already accounted for and B: higher now than it will inevitably end up being in 2014), and Champ joined a team that he described as “very close” to a...

Saints Make a Statement Signing Bailey

The Saints are making a statement by signing Champ Bailey, their third defensive back of the free agent period. It’s time to win, and win now. Rob Ryan performed a miraculous turnaround with a defense that was the worst in league history, making them a respectable force in just one season. Now with the free agent signings of Jairus Byrd and Bailey, the New Orleans secondary has...

Champ Bailey not the answer for the New Orleans Saints

After signing Champ Bailey to a two-year, max $7 million deal on Friday the Saints are a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Admittedly that statement is a bit misleading, because prior to signing Bailey the Saints were still one of the seven or eight teams popularly believed to have a shot at winning it all. Bailey is the second pro bowler the Saints have added to the defensive backfield...

Saints sign Champ Bailey

Mike Triplett of reports that the Saints have agreed to terms with veteran CB Champ Bailey. Jason La Canfora reported that Bailey was signing with a new team on Friday, but couldn’t confirm the team. Bailey, 35, was cut loose by the Broncos a few weeks ago, which came as little surprise given his age and salary for the 2014 season. Last year, he totaled 14 tackles...
