“He’s a guy we definitely want to bring back,” coach John Fox told Mike Klis of the Denver Post, saying there have been “discussions” between the two sides. “You never know how things like that work out, but we’re moving forward as best we know how.”
This is a very tricky deal for the Broncos. Bailey is coming off a strong season, but he’s turning 33 years old.
The Broncos badly need to keep him for a beleaguered defense. On the other hand, Bailey would seemingly fit better on a contending team that could pay him huge money over the next 2-3 years.
Will Bailey still be effective by the time the Broncos are any good?
