Champ Bailey is an all time great, a Hall of Fame caliber cornerback and probably can’t remember the names of all 11 defensive coordinators he’s had in his career. The 14 year veteran is the prototypical defensive back, He has size, he can play zone or man to man, and he takes away half of the football field. It’s even more amazing that with the entire turnover Bailey has experienced, he has maintained such a high level of play and respect among his peers. Bailey has taken instruction from many, too many for him to count. “I know I’m up there,” Bailey said. “I’ve got to be up there” according to Andrew Mason of CBSSports.com. The flavor of the month is Jack Del Rio, former Head Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and possibly a coach who could stick around for a while. Del Rio has done a great job with the Broncos’ defense and could attract some attention for a 2nd Head Coaching stint; though it is unlikely it would happen this year. “I’d be happy for him,” Bailey said. “It would suck for us because we’d have to start all over again, but it is what it is. Everybody wants a promotion, so you’ve got to applaud guys that get them.”           var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
