Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey spoke candidly about his future in the game after his team's Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
The 35-year-old admitted he may have to look at a way to prolong his career, but the Bronco made sure to distance himself from any links with retiring.
"I'm not done playing football," Bailey said, per The Denver Post. "So I feel like I'm going to give myself another shot next year."
Asked if he would consider moving to safety to prolong his career he revealed, "If it makes sense," Bailey said. "It's something I'd definitely look into."
Bailey is one of many great players who is yet to taste Super Bowl success. Post-game he admitted his side were not up to the standards of the Seahawks.
"It's two points [the early safety]. You should be able to bounce back from something like that," he told NFL.com.
"Things got out of hand in the end. You can't play a good team like that and make mistakes because they will make you pay.
"I'm not surprised that we got here. I'm surprised at the way we played. We just didn't match their intensity."
