Saints News, 4/7/14: Champ Bailey Says Saints Are Very Close To Super Bowl Title

Jeff Zelevansky

"(The Saints) are very close (to a championship)," he said Friday, according to the Saints' official website. "You look at, Coach Payton took a year off, came back and they got in the playoffs, and won a game. They're very close. I think any time you have a guy like Drew Brees calling the shots on offense, you're always going to have a shot. Then, you put a good defense in with that and you give yourself a better shot. They've got all the pieces, so hopefully I'm another piece to help them get to where we want to go."
