True toonster, Portis at that time was on the same or greater level at the time as Bailey . esp in the future.
People forget now that, at the time, in that final year in D.C. (2003), most observers felt that Fred Smoot had a better year than Champ Bailey, and that Fred Smoot was better in coverage. It's laughable now, and it's fair to ask how much Bailey helped Smoot, but, if you go over that year again, Bailey wasn't as dominant. People have off years, though, and that was certainly looking to simply be a hiccup in Champ's career.
NFL Network's Adam Shefter reports that the Broncos have asked for Ladell Betts in exchange for Dre' Bly.
The Broncos are also reportedly talking to the Saints. Other reports say Denver is interested in Washington's first-round pick. The news about Betts is interesting considering Denver just paid big money to Travis Henry. But it's a typical Mike Shanahan move; He's not afraid to acquire an extra quality running back.
