The Denver Broncos had one of their best seasons in recent memory last year. Unfortunately, they didn't win a game in the playoffs, so their regular season success didn't mean much. They will try to carry their regular season success through the postseason next year, and Champ Bailey should be there to help them do it.
According to Mike Kilis of the Denver Post, Bailey will return next season despite rumors that he could be a cap casualty. Even if Bailey were to be a cap casualty, there is question whether he would move on to another team. Bailey has been in the league a long time and it's not absurd to think he may want to retire.
But with the news being that Bailey will return to the Broncos next season, any thoughts of retirement or free agency can be set aside. Bailey will be back in Denver helping them focus on ways to get deeper into the postseason.
Bailey has been in the league for 15 years. He has spent 10 of those years with the Broncos. Denver is set to pay him $10.5 million in 2013.
