ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – John Elway says the Denver Broncos are trying to re-sign perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey. In a series of tweets Thursday, the Broncos’ new chief of football operations said the team is engaged in “constructive conversations” with Bailey’s representatives about keeping the 32-year-old star in orange and blue. The Broncos decided not to place their franchise tag on Bailey, who just completed his seven-year $63 million contract with a 10th Pro Bowl berth, a record for cornerbacks. New coach John Fox’s massive makeover of Denver’s deficient defense would be much easier with Bailey as the cornerstone of that rebuilding effort. But Bailey is putting his Littleton home up for sale, which could be a sign that he’d rather join a team that’s closer to contending for a championship.
