Denver Broncos veteran cornerback Champ Bailey is to be released.
The Super Bowl contenders have released Bailey in an effort to free up some $10 million for the teams salary cap, according to CBS's Jason La Canfora.
He announced the news via twitter citing a lack of surprise due to the financial aspect of this release.
Bailey still holds the record for most Pro Bowls for a cornerback with twelve appearances.
He has been a Bronco since 2004 but started his career in Washington for the Redskins in 1999.
Despite his age, his veteran experience is sure to be a draw for many teams in free agency, especially a team drafting and building newer younger defensive line.
