Crazy thought: Champ Bailey at Free Safety?

Bailey is a free agent and considering the switch to safety. He's lost a step or two, but talented corners like him can extend their careers with a switch. I feel like Bailey is the type of corner that would make the conversion better than D. Hall.

I'd like to pick up a career safety to hold down the position for several years, but someone like Champ could be a band-aid for a year or two if nothing pans out. That is, if a completely new staff is appealing enough to get Bailey to come back to Washington.


It's far-fetched, but it's still offseason and I felt like stirring the pot. :twisted:

I don't think it's the coaching staff in DC Mrs. Bailey cares about. [-X

Exactly. Unless he got divorced or can prove to his entree that his side dish is not within 800 miles of the dmv, bailey ain't coming here.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

Yes...crazy thought. Leaving the top of the AFC to go to the cellar of the NFC. That's not the way to end a career.
