'Champ' gets KO'd in New Orleans

Metairie, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Future Hall of Fame cornerback Champ Bailey is unemployed again after the New Orleans Saints released him on Saturday en route to getting to the NFL's 53-man roster limit.

It could be the end of the line for the 36-year-old, seven-time All-Pro, who performed poorly last year in Denver.

The Saints also terminated the contracts of veteran wide receiver Robert Meachem, linebacker Keyunta Dawson, kicker Shayne Graham and tackle Thomas Welch.

New Orleans also waived center Matt Armstrong, cornerback Derrius Brooks, wide receiver Brandon Coleman, linebacker Todd Davis, kicker Derek Dimke, cornerback Terrence Frederick, wide receiver Charles Hawkins, tight end Nic Jacobs, guard Marcel Jones, wide receiver Seantavious Jones, tackle Tavon Rooks, running back Derrick Strozier, nose tackle Lawrence Virgil, cornerback Trevin Wade, safety Pierre Warren and guard Jason Weaver.

The Saints currently have no placekicker on their 53-man roster so expect the team to be active on the waiver wire in the coming days.
