Since Bailey's arrival in Denver he has been both a fan favorite and a perennial pro bowler. This season will mark his 11th year in the league but he goes into it with a slight chip on his shoulder.

Last season was not a banner year for Bailey, playing in only nine games due to injury and falling well short of the impressive stats that have so often highlighted his career. For one reason or another Bailey and the entire Broncos defence preformed poorly last season.

For most of his career Bailey has been known as a lock down corner, but what happens when the defence is not playing well and you are not at full strength?

Here are eight questions for the Champ.

1) Since coming to Denver you have had many career highlights. Talk about that initial change in scenery and how it has impacted your game?

2)You have been in the NFL now for 11 seasons. If you could go back in time, what is one piece of advice you would give your self at the start of your rookie season?

3)You are often lined up against the best wideouts in the game today, which one gives you the most trouble and which one gives you the most smack talk? Do you do any smack talk of your own?

4)Why do you think the defence was targeted as the main problem at the end of last season both by the fans and the media?

5)what are your goals for the season both as a team and for your self?

6) With complimentary corner back Dre Blye gone, can you talk about his contributions to the team and how it may effect your personal and the teams strategy this season?

7)In the past you have flirted with playing the wideout position, any plans to actually go though with some of that? Does roll playing like that help you in your preparation?

8)What is the one stat your are most proud of in your career and the one stat you need to improve on this season?
