Default Bailey to return according to Woody

In today's mailbag on the Post, Woody says he has been told in good faith the Broncos will re-sign him to a 4 year $42 million deal or put the franchise tag on him

Yay Broncos news! Also kinda good Broncos news. Price tag is a bit steep, isn't it? I haven't exactly been keeping up to speed on cornerback contract values.

*edit* Oh also lol @ local media. So poster above me is probably correct.

Hopefully they sign him, that franchise tag would break the bank

even though woodys articles are pretty much dumb, hes usually right when it comes to stuff like this it seems. he also predicted that orange will be back in 2012.

Not saying it's the smart move but imagine the boost to Peterson's career to learn under Champ and imagine the defensive options with those two in the secondary and Goodman in the nickel.

The source is obviously Bowlen or Elway. If it's Bowlen, let's hope Pat wrote "sign Champ to $42M deal" on his refrigerator or he may forget.

Nice! Pretty much the same as the contract that was yanked earlier in the season.

Hopefully this means we will go DL instead of Patrick Peterson. Fairley, Bowers, Dareus... Doesn't really matter which DL as long as it's DL that can make an impact his rookie year!

If Bowers grades out well I think he would be a smart pick. I don't have a lot of faith in Doom being an everydown DE. Ayers can slide inside during passing downs and we could have Bowers and Doom pressuring the ends and Ayers up the middle.

Baja, drafting Peterson would be the worst possible move this franchise could make with that pick, PARTICULARLY if we sign Champ.

We've got arguably 7-9 positions that could use an upgrade before CB, at that point.

Honestly, drafting Peterson would just be a disaster for this franchise.

No doubt they could be great together... But even those two can't cover for 5 seconds every passing down.

Defensive options like get gashed in the run game or watch 25 million dollars worth of cornerbacks get roasted by a QB who has all day to throw?

Depends on what you think will be available in the 2nd. Med seems to believe there will be DL available in the 2nd that would be mid 1st rounders in most drafts.

I would much rather we get a force on the DL in the first... But if you think there are DL in the 2nd that can make an immediate impact and want to have a succession plan for Champs transition to Safety, it may not be a bad strategy. Certainly a plan for the future rather than immediate results.

Hopefully we can get a CB in free agency (Richard Marshall, Eric Wright or Carlos Rogers), then we won't have to worry about it!

Champ is the best CB in the NFL. Best because he not only covers the best WR, but he is THE best tackler on the entire defense.

Not saying it would be the best choice but I don't think it would be a disaster to get the best player in the draft. We still have two high second round picks in a draft that is deep in DL players plus free agency. A disaster would be drafting a one year wonder with the 2nd overall pick that turns out to be a bust.
