Denver is set to release CB Champ Bailey, according to an ESPN report. Two seasons ago Bailey was showing signs of losing a step; last season he had clearly lost it. One of the league's most consistent cornerbacks of all time fell off in a blink.

We have seem other sharp declines in recent years but Bailey's is one of the saddest.

Begs the question: Will his sharp decline affect his first ballot HOF chances?
