(The Sports Xchange) - Champ Bailey's long and distinguished NFL career came to an end Tuesday.

The cornerback had been out of a job since he was released during final cuts before the season by the New Orleans Saints. Reale indicated that several teams had shown interest in Bailey since then, but he chose not to go that route.
