After starring on the football field in high school and at the University of Georgia, cornerback Champ Bailey was chosen by the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 1999 NFL draft. Champ quickly proved that he had what it took to be a star in the NFL. His speed, athletic ability, and understanding of the game made him a fearsome defender. Opposing quarterbacks soon learned that they would pay a high price for throwing to Champ's side of the field.
After the 2003 season, Champ signed a seven-year, $63 million contract with the Denver Broncos. This made him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. Champ has remained among the league's best defensive players, and has been selected for the Pro Bowl eight times. It seems certain that Champ will remain a pro football superstar for many years to come.
