Champ Bailey signs 2-year deal with New Orleans

It looks like Champ Bailey’s legendary career will continue in 2014, as NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported today that the 12-time Pro Bowler has signed a 2-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints ‘Rex Ryan-led defense’ should be a great fit for Bailey at this stage in his career. The veteran has struggled of late when put in man coverage, but with the Saints defense, Bailey will be backed by one of the leagues best safety tandems featuring Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro.

Bailey will work opposite fellow corner Keenan Lewis, who recorded 39 tackles and 4 interceptions for the Saints defense in 2013.

Meanwhile, Champ played in just 5 games for Denver in 2013 due to injuries. Prior to that, Bailey played in all 16 games for the Broncos during the 2012 season, recording 61 tackles and 2 interceptions respectively.

The Miami Dolphins and former Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno have agreed to terms on a 1-year contract worth a reported $3 million, this according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Last season with Denver, Moreno rushed for a career-high 1,038 yards and scored 10 touchdowns.

The Dolphins will be hoping that Knowshon can produce similar numbers this season in Miami. Last year, the Dolphins backfield struggled to find consistency behind running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, thus prompting a change in the position.

With the departure of Moreno, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will now turn to Montee Bell for most of Denver’s offensive carries.

Vince Wilfork will remain a New England Patriot after all.

Today, the long time Patriots defensive tackle agreed on a 3-year contract extension with the club worth a reported $22.5 million, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

It was just over a week ago when Wilfork asked the Patriots organization to grant him his release. However, thanks to some encouraging words from Pats owner Robert Kraft, and a healthy new contract, Vince has decided to remain New England.

Wilfork turns 33 year-old in November and is coming off a torn Achilles tendon, yet he is still widely regarded as one of the leagues best defensive tackles.

The Patriots obviously believe that the injury will have no ill effects on Wilfork’s ability to perform at an elite level, which they will need him to do this season if they plan on contending with the defending AFC champion Denver Broncos.
