After reuniting with John Fox, for whom he'd coordinated the Panthers defense in 2002, Del Rio led Denver's defense to rank #4 in points and #2 in yardage allowed in 2012.

Champ wants back, suggests he’s open to a move to safety

One couldn't help but wonder whether Champ Bailey would have retired with a Broncos victory on Sunday night.

Well, he doesn't yet have the opportunity to walk away on top ala John Elway.
