Cornerback Champ Bailey will be joining the New Orleans Saints roster.
WWL Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic confirms the team and the defensive back have agreed on a two-year deal.
Garic says it is a smart move by the Saints.
"Bailey, has played in the league for 15 years, and while his best football might be behind him, he's still a valuable player to a young defensive secondary. He'll fit right in with Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan's pressing defense. Realistically I think the Saints will carve out a specific role for Bailey in the nickel defense," our sideline reporter said.
Garic also likes the way things are shaping up for the Saints in the NFL Draft.
"General Manager Mickey Loomis and company have done a solid job of positioning themselves to select the best player available in May's draft. I still think they'll draft a corner next month. Bailey's leadership will also aid the Saints. "
Bailey is a Pro Bowler who snagged two interceptions last season.
