DENVER — Cornerback Champ Bailey will retire as a Denver Bronco.

The team announced Friday that Bailey will sign a one-day contract with the Broncos to retire as a member of the team he spent 10 seasons with.

Bailey was one of the game’s premier shutdown cornerbacks, being named to 12 Pro Bowls, seven All-Pro teams and the NFL 2000s All-Decade team during his storied career.

Bailey was released by the Broncos in March. He played with the New Orleans Saints in training camp, but was released before the start of the regular season.
