Washington Redskins

Bailey's reputation as a shutdown corner was established at the professional level. He was a large presence on a defense that had its ups and downs. He benefitted from time spent with iconic cornerbacks Deion Sanders and Darrell Green; both are considered among the best of all time. In tandem with Fred Smoot and the aforementioned greats, Champ helped establish a near legendary era of man-to-man coverage for the 'Skins.

On January 14, 2006 in a divisional playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos, Bailey broke the record for the longest non-scoring play in NFL history. With the Patriots poised to score, Bailey intercepted a pass from Tom Brady in the end zone and returned it 100 yards to the 1 yard line, and fumbled the ball out of bounds, after being chased down and lightly pushed out of bounds by Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson, who also went to Georgia. The Patriots challenged, in the hope that the ball was fumbled through the end zone, which would have caused the possession of the ball to go to New England Patriots at the 20 yard line , but there was not enough evidence to overturn the call, and the play stood. The Broncos scored a touchdown on the next play. The play was considered the most crucial of the contest, which the Broncos would go on to win, hence ending the Patriots' quest for a historic third straight Super Bowl title. is the 14th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...
