Champ Bailey’s Agent Blames Release On Playing Hurt


A full decade after the Broncos traded running back Clinton Portis for cornerback Champ Bailey, the Broncos have released him. Bailey’s agent thinks that, if Bailey hadn’t been such a team player in 2013, he’d still be on the team.

“Champ is appreciative of the 10 years he had there,” agent Jack Reale told Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “It’s unfortunate frankly that he tried to play hurt this year. Because most people with that injury would wind up on IR.”
