Champ Bailey pays visit to the New Orleans Saints

Champ Bailey paid a visit to the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday - and plans to speak to one more team before making a decision on his future, according to reports.

The cornerback is a 12-time ProBowl pick but was released by the Denver Broncos after his poorest season on record.

Bailey suffered a serious foot injury in August which limited him to just five games in 2013, and struggled to make it back in time for the Superbowl, where he was shown up by Doug Baldwin for a 37-yard gain in the first quarter.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bailey visited the Saints yesterday and plans to speak to another franchise - unless talks in New Orleans go particularly well and a contract is agreed.

While news of the 35-year-old's potential arrival is hardly likely to set pulses racing in New Orleans, it could prove to be a wise move, with little cover on offer behind Keenan Lewis.

There have been plenty of comings and goings at the Saints during the offseason - a host of veterans have been released while Darren Sproles has been traded to the Eagles.

New faces include Jairus Byrd and free-agent fullback Erik Lorig.
