Broncos reportedly won’t cut Champ Bailey

Despite a rough playoff game against the Ravens, the Denver Broncos don’t plan on releasing cornerback Champ Bailey this offseason, according to ProFootballWeekly.com.

Broncos CB Champ Bailey had a performance to forget in the playoff loss to the Ravens. A CBS Sports report listed Bailey as a potential cap casualty — the future Hall of Famer is owed $9.5 million next year, in addition to a $1 million roster bonus. Despite the money owed, we hear that the Broncos have no intention of releasing Bailey. He had a Pro Bowl season — not simply by name recognition, but by his play, and cornerback is already considered a position of need for the Broncos this offseason.

Bailey will turn 35 years-old in June and is scheduled to make over $9 million in each of the next two seasons.
