Champ Bailey Visiting Saints

Free agent defensive back Champ Bailey is visiting New Orleans to meet with the Saints, reports Adam Schefter of (via Twitter). According to Schefter and Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports (via Twitter), other teams have expressed interest in Bailey, so the veteran figures to take at least one more visit if he doesn’t ink a deal with the Saints right away.

Bailey, will turn 36 this summer, appeared in just five regular season games in 2013 due to a foot injury, and his exorbitant cap hit made him a cap casualty for the AFC champion Broncos. While he can walk away from the game as one of the top cornerbacks of his time and a likely ticket to Canton, Bailey indicated after the Super Bowl that he would like to continue playing. The longtime cornerback also previously expressed reluctance about moving from corner to safety, as many veterans do, but sounded at least open to the idea when asked again after the Super Bowl.
