Bio

Champ Bailey is a cornerback for the New Orleans Saints. He is a 12-time Pro-Bowler and a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.

EARLY YEARS

Bailey was born June 22, 1978 in Folkston, Georgia. Bailey was an all-around player for the Charlton County Indians. In his high school career, he rushed for 3,573 yards and 58 TDs, passed for 1,211 yards and had eight interceptions.

UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA

Bailey was considered one of the greatest multi-threat players in his time at the University of Georgia. In his final year on campus, on defense, Bailey had 52 tackles, three interceptions and seven passes defended. On offense, he had 47 catches for 744 yards and five TDs.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

Bailey was drafted in the first round (seventh overall) in the 1999 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins.

In his five years with the team, he had 18 interceptions and was named to the Pro Bowl four times.

DENVER BRONCOS

Unhappy in Washington, Bailey was granted permission to seek a trade. Prior the 2004 NFL Season, Bailey was traded to the Denver Broncos in exchange for RB Clinton Portis and a draft pick.

In 10 seasons with the Broncos, Bailey recorded 34 interceptions, including a tie for the league lead with 10 in 2006.

For financial purposes, Bailey was released by the Denver Broncos after the 2013 NFL Season after he played in only five games, making 12 tackles.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Bailey signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Saints on April 4, 2014.

He currently holds the record for most Pro Bowl selections for a defensive back with 12.
