Boss Bailey is visiting the Broncos for 2 days

"First of all, we need him, that's the biggest thing above him being my brother," Champ Bailey said Tuesday. "It would be great for us. Hopefully, we'll get it done ... There's no question, this is where Boss wants to be."

Champ has talked to his brother, obviously Boss said he wants to play for the Denver Broncos. Only thing standing in the way is $$$, and they haven't gone nuts so far this year. This would be a great move on their part, as it provides competition for Winborn in camp at Strongside. The Broncos will have an above average linebacking corps once again with Koutouvides at MLB, Bailey or Winborn at SLB, and DJ Williams back at WLB. If Williams won the MLB job over Koutouvides, the Broncos would have the fastest linebacking corps in the NF:

Aw man. This is just disappointing.

Roland "Champ" Bailey is an American football player, starting at cornerback for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League. His mother nicknamed him "Champ" at an early age.

Rodney "Boss" Bailey is an American football linebacker for the Detroit Lions of the NFL. He is the younger brother of Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, and received the nickname "Boss" from his mother.

I'd prefer Gold to be honest. Bailey can't tackle, handle blocks or hold up at the point of attack, so he utterly sucks on the strong side. But we don't have a spot for him on the weakside. We also wouldn't be able to cut him without mortally offending his older brother... who just happens to be one of our top players.

The entire upside of this move seems to be "Champ & Boss... cool!". Hard to see how that helps our team.

It's actually surprising how many Denver fans think Boss Bailey is good simply because of his last name. If only they'd watch a few Lions games... they'd realize the awful truth.

I think Niko is an okay addition - he does the kind of things that our LB's don't seem to be able to do... like tackle... and play special teams. Is he a starter? We'll have to find out.

Anyway, I think our LB corps is very much in transition, which is a nice way of saying the team knows it sucks and is trying to do something about it. We could easily burn 2 draft picks on LB's... but then there's DT, OT, S, WR, KR, K, P, etc. Some many needs, so few picks...

it must make some sense, otherwise we wouldn't be paying them. It's called healthy competition. The move provides depth. Koutouvides is no Lofa Tatupu, there's a reason that he was benched. But he can penetrate and stop the run, something DJ didn't excel at, something we need as one of the worst run defenses in the NFL And of course, I think Boss will battle it out with our "journeyman." Did you ever consider that fast outside linebackers thrive in Denver? No? Oh, well as boss definitely has above average potential, he has the speed, and those types of linebackers thrive in Denver. If you really look deep into things, you never know, there just might be logic.

Yes, of course it makes sense since you are paying them. It's not like people can overspend like the Raiders, right? Afterall, it must make sense to give Tommy Kelly and Javon Walker $100 million over the next 6 years, right? Otherwise they wouldn't be paying them. Right?

Wow, for someone who uses logic as their main argument...

Do you base every single player's career on their last season? I mean, since gold had a crap season last year, that means he never was effective in our system, right? My point is: Gold wasn't always a piece of ****. There was a stretch a few years ago where he could wrap up and tackle, and he could have even made a run for a pro bowl spot. He was effective in our system, as speed linebackers are effective in the Denver defense. One season doesn't erase several years of above average play. Ian just couldn't tackle last season, he sucked. I can promise you, Boss can tackle better then Gold. 99% of Bronco Nation will agree with me. Gold tackles like an average nfl corner now a days

Second, it does make sense because were not paying them absurd amounts of money. We're paying these guys a small fraction of what your two studs are making. In other words, we aren't shooting ourselves in the mouth if they backfire. It's not like we've invested a quarter of our cap in them. These guys will be lucky to make a total of 40 mil combined over the next 6 years.

Are are you seriously comparing the contracts of Kelly and Walker to contracts of Boss and Niko? so yeah, i see how you're trying to put me on the spot by quoting me, but it doesn't look good when youre off by.. oh... 60 million. But... whats 60 million when you root for the raiders? Gotta be used to it by now.

I've watched every Lions game... and I can tell you that the 1% of Bronco Nation might be right.

Gold might tackle like an average NFL CB... but Boss rarely tackles at all. He runs himself completely out of plays, can't shed blocks and, in the rare moment that he actually gets close to the ball carrier, usually whiffs (or throws an arm tackle towards him).

Boss has a lot of speed, but isn't physical and doesn't make plays. Keep in mind: Marinelli wants speed on defense, but wouldn't consider bringing Boss back. Should say something.

And, the best part with Boss: he'll be quiet the entire game... basically on the field to fulfill the 11 man requirement, but not making an impact... and the ball carrier will run right towards him and trip and fall. So, Boss falls on him (he's not bad at that), gets up and has a freaking CELEBRATION!

I've never seen a player celebrate so much for doing so little. Each of the 2 tackles he gets in one game (a good game, FYI), you'll know... because he'll have a party.

My favorite part about Boss in Detroit was when a RB was stood up by a couple of Lions and was seconds away from they play being blown dead he would just jump on the pile.

Some of these old Boss Bailey horror stories are freaking hilarious. good thread.

bleh, i already posted in another thread, so whatever.

anyone who doesn't think boss bailey represents an improvement, no matter how limited, over ian gold is an absolute, raving lunatic and should've watched a broncos game before opening their mouth.

that said, anyone who thinks boss bailey actually makes us better on defense should likely have his head checked. i'd tend to recommend children's hospital in denver, they give good cat scan.

is boss a completely horrific and worthless linebacker? sure. was ian gold possibly the worst player to ever don a jersey in the history of the nfl, a player most broncos fans would've willingly traded for nearly every player, regardless of position in the AFL? without a doubt.


But without Gold's tampa bay vacation, the donks wouldn't have gotten that compensatory pick that landed them future HOFer Maurice Clarett! How can you call him worthless?

I would agree with both statements. My main contention with Jimmy's statement was when he said something to the effect of "Adding Koutouvides and Bailey gives the Broncos an above average LB corps." That leaves the Broncos with an ultra talented LB in Williams, a career special teamer in Koutouvides and a piece of crap in Bailey. Hardly above average.

You are correct friend.

Jimmy, what does the Raiders offseason have to do with Boss Bailey being a subpar LB? Quit changing the subject. He's not a very good player and neither him or the Greek guy are going to make a substantial improvement to your defense.

hmm..well komp, had you taken the time to read my little discussion with another poster, you would know

do you not see the potential though? Koutouvides was a special teamer because Lofa Tatupu was just a better player then him. Lofa's pretty good, so I'm not too worried. Niko is a run stuffer, something we've needed. Boss's speed permits him to be a decent linebacker in our system, assuming he can wrap up slightly better then gold. That in itself, I think their speed and size makes our corps potentially a top 15 unit in the NFL

Honestly, subtracting Gold and adding Boss IMO helps the Broncos LB unit, even if it is by a minimal decimal point. It isn't going to change a whole lot though. Also, its always good to have young depth at the LB position.

With that in mind, I'm thinking that maybe the Broncos don't see LB as a huge need in the draft now. And I would think if they were to draft a LB, it would be for a MLB, so not Rivers.

I agree here. With what they've done I think Rivers drops off the wish list at #12. If they can drop back maybe they still take Connor. I'm not sure he should but it looks like the Broncos thought that LB was best addressed in FA.

As far as Boss Bailey what it looks like is they cut Ian Gold and resigned him with a different name. Gold got to the ball all the time last year so we could all see him miss the tackle. My hope with the Boss pick-up is that working with his brother gets him motivated enough to improve...I won't be holding my breath though.
