Once the Denver Broncos released seven-time All-Pro cornerback Champ Bailey, it wasn’t going to be long before he was tied to just about every team in the league. But Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons are a team seriously in the hunt for the former Georgia Bulldog standout.
