Champ Bailey will be 36 next season. He was due $9 million. His play had started to slip before the 2013 season, and then he missed most of last season with injuries. Given the choice of keeping Bailey around or saving $10 million in cap space, the Broncos made the obvious call.
That ends a 10-year stay for Bailey in Denver. It was a pretty remarkable decade for him.
