Champ Bailey doesn’t have a Super Bowl ring. But he likes his chances of getting one in New Orleans.
Bailey said after signing with the Saints today that he’s on board with what the coaching staff told him, which is that their sights are set on winning the Super Bowl.
“We’re all on the same page and we all have the same goal in mind and that’s to win a championship,” Bailey said. “[The Saints] are very close [to a championship]. You look at, Coach Payton took a year off, came back and they got in the playoffs, and won a game. They’re very close. I think any time you have a guy like Drew Brees calling the shots on offense, you’re always going to have a shot. Then, you put a good defense in with that and you give yourself a better shot. They’ve got all the pieces, so hopefully I’m another piece to help them get to where we want to go.”
Although the 35-year-old Bailey isn’t the same player he once was, he thinks his experience will be valuable to the Saints.
“I have a little more to my game, I believe, especially mentally,” Bailey said. “I can see things a lot easier, a lot of things come up that I’ve had experience with. That only helps your game.”
Bailey believes he can help the Saints win the Super Bowl.
