Champ Bailey wants to continue playing in NFL following release

Champ Bailey was released by the New Orleans Saints on Saturday but the 36-year-old future hall of famer is not ready to hang up the cleats just yet.

Bailey still wants to play with his agent saying that his client was healthy and ready.

“He had a plantar (foot) problem which is resolved. He just missed too much time for the coach’s evaluation to be complete.” said agent Jack Reale.

A 12-time Pro Bowler, Bailey played in the Saints final preseason game on Thursday.

Last season Bailey was limited to just five games while dealing with a foot injury. Interested teams will want Bailey to prove he is healthy before placing him on the field.
