The Denver Broncos released future Hall Of Fame corner back, Champ Bailey early Thursday morning. It’s reported that the Broncos will save $10 million in cap space with the release, something the Broncos desperately need.
The question I have is this, could Champ Bailey help the Kansas City Chiefs in any way? Bailey, 35, has no plans to retire and will become a free agent for the first time in his illustrious career. Though he is well past his prime, Bailey might have something to offer if he were to make a switch to safety or the nickel.
Kansas City is looking to replace free safety, Kendrick Lewis, as it is expected that he will become free agent as well when the new season officially begins next week. Two factors come to mind when thinking about Bailey signing with the Chiefs, one, he is older and is definitely not a long term solution. Two, how much money is he asking for because the Chiefs don’t have much to offer.
It’s a long shot that Kansas City is even considering Champ Bailey for their secondary, but imagine if he made the switch to the Chiefs and just killed the Broncos next year. I see it now, Manning drops back for the pass and IT’S INTERCEPTED! CHAMP BAILEY UP THE SIDELINE, TEN, FIVE, TOUCHDOWWWWWWN KAN-SAS CITY!
And imagine if they could win a Super Bowl! It would be the ultimate revenge for Neil Smith in the late 90’s when he made the jump from KC to Denver. But I digress.
It’s such an intriguing thought, and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since the announcement of the 12 time pro bowler’s release. So, I’m curious, would you consider Champ Bailey for the Chiefs secondary if the money was right?
