ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Champ Bailey has been a nine-time Pro Bowl selection at cornerback and was selected to the NFL's all-decade team in the 2000s.

But Bailey has news for the rest of the league, even after 11 seasons.

Bailey says he's better physically and mentally now than he's ever been.

The Broncos, at least to some degree, must believe there are better days ahead for their star defensive back. The team currently is involved in negotiations to extend Bailey's current pact, which expires at season's end.
