Champ Bailey wants more “security” in contract proposal

Champ Bailey, Santonio Holmes

The Broncos and cornerback Champ Bailey are talking again.  That’s the good news for Broncos fans.

The bad news is that Bailey isn’t particularly happy with Denver’s latest proposal.  A source “close to the negotiation” talked to Josina Anderson of FOX31 Sports in Denver about where the two sides are:

“The Broncos’ negotiating posture has not changed in any respect from the offer that was made back in October which provided only limited guarantees.  The money represents nothing more than a commitment to the player for just the upcoming season only, which Bailey would be highly unlikely to accept in its current form on the brink of  free agency given the lack of security provided beyond the first year of the contract,” the source said.

We mentioned this morning why Bailey’s contract is particularly tricky.  It’s also a tricky time to sign a player.  The reality is that players may have to take a little less to sign in February than they would ultimately get after a new CBA is worked out.

Bailey should already have enough money for his family to live off for generations.  He doesn’t need to be in a rush.

UPDATE: Bailey has put his house on the market.  That’s probably not a great sign.

    Champ isn’t asking for maximum security like his teammate Perrish Cox will likely receive, just a reasonable comfort level.

    One of the best players… wait sorry, the best player on the team wants a little security an u don’t want to give it to him… come on… he has been more than consistent and deserves a bone thrown his way… but no, the broncos will just show him the door like they did with Marshall an hills… I thought this team was changing for the better after mcdaniels…

    The only reason Champ would be going to Oakland would be to PICK OFF the damn scabs on Al Davis’s head. BLAHHHHHAHAHAHAH

    Champ is a stud and the best player on the team. But he has missed games due to injuries for the last three or four seasons. Given his age and recent injury history, the Broncos probably have to let him go. Hanging on to an oft-injured, expensive player whose skills are certain to diminish in the coming years when you are rebuilding doesn’t make a lot of sense.
