Metairie, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - The New Orleans Saints agreed to terms with free agent Champ Bailey on a two-year contract Friday.

The veteran cornerback was released by the Denver Broncos last month.

"We are excited to be able to add a future Hall of Fame player with the addition of Champ Bailey," said Saints executive vice president/general manager Mickey Loomis. "His career accomplishments mirror that of his high character and he's a very prideful and competitive player who we believe will add to our defense. Having spent time with him recently and in our discussions with him, I know that he's thrilled to be joining the New Orleans Saints and starting a new chapter in his professional life."

Bailey, 35, suffered through an injury-plagued 2013 campaign. He played in just five regular-season games, but returned to play in all three postseason games, including the Super Bowl.

He finished the regular season with 14 total tackles and no interceptions, marking the first time in his 15-year career he failed to pick off a pass.

Bailey spent 10 seasons with the Broncos, picking of 34 passes. The 12-time Pro Bowl selection has registered 983 tackles, 52 interceptions and 235 passes defensed in his career.

The Georgia product was drafted seventh overall by Washington in 1999 and played his first five seasons with the Redskins before being traded to Denver.
