Saints Release CB Champ Bailey



Albert Breer reports that the Saints are in fact releasing veteran Champ Bailey

Bailey was paid a $500,000 signing bonus this spring, which was the only guaranteed money included in his contract.

Bailey is 36, appeared in just five games last year and recorded 14 tackles and three pass defenses.


According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, there is “drama building” in New Orleans regarding whether or not they’ll keep veteran Champ Bailey on their 53-man roster.

  • Rapoport mentions that the Saints “may love rookie Brian Dixon more” than Bailey.

The idea of Bailey being on the chopping block came up months ago, so this wouldn’t be a completely shocking move from the Saints.
