Champ Bailey is undoubtedly one of the top five corners to ever play the game. It makes sense — since the 12-time Pro Bowler learned from under arguably the two-best in Deion Sanders and Darrell Green. Bailey was immensely competitive — using elite athletic ability with transcendent instinctual prowess. He could diagnose the route tree before receivers even got out of their breaks. From there, he’d make a beeline for the intended target. This resulted usually in a pass-breakup or an interception.
In 2019, it was no surprise to find out that Bailey was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A few years earlier, Bailey married his longtime girlfriend in a lavish ceremony in Newport Beach, Calif. Even more exciting, Bailey is a doting father to his son, Keevan. Keevan Bailey also plays as a cornerback (like his famous dad). The younger Bailey was a member of the Colorado State Rams football team. Earlier this season, he entered the transfer portal. His whereabouts currently as a football player are unknown.
