Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey's House On the Market

Free agent Champ Bailey has put his Colorado home up for sale, just after it was reported Bailey had renewed contract talks with the Broncos, writes Jeff Legwald.

According to Legwald, "Broncos head coach John Fox told The Denver Post on Tuesday that some talks with Bailey's representatives on a contract extension had taken place, saying: 'We've had some dialogue there. There have been discussions. He's a guy we definitely want to bring back.'"

Legwald went on to write, "Reale said he did not want to comment on the state of negotiations or what Bailey's decision to put his house on the market the day after those talks became public would mean. Bailey, who could not be reached Wednesday, has said while he wants to stay in Denver, his first priority will be to go to a team that's 'in position to win and committed to win. I can't wait forever.'"

And as much as we Broncos fans don't want to admit it, it looks like Champ may very well decide that he doesn't want to wait through the rebuilding that this team will have to go through.

The past two years must have been very frustrating for Bailey, clearly the only real super talent on the defense—other than Doom, before he was hurt.

And his seeing the damage done by McDaniels in the draft would be enough to send off any player with Champ's narrowing window to chase a ring. And I am sure the way he was treated in his contract offer being pulled didn't help matters any.

So, unless he is slapped with the franchise tag, which would be a very unfair move, he will likely be gone by next season.
