While news broke early on Wednesday morning that the Denver Broncos were re-opening contract talks with soon-to-be free agent cornerback Champ Bailey, new information may dampen spirits over a new deal being worked out. Josina Anderson of FOX31 Denver tweeted:
Full Champ Bailey quote: "I am putting my Littleton, (CO) house up for sale. It will be officially listed within the next few days."#Broncos
That doesn't sound like something one would say if the contract negotiations are indeed serious. This leads one to believe that either Bailey has no intention of returning to Denver or that the Broncos are just attempting a PR move to say, "Well, we tried and he just didn't want to."
