Saints News, 5/23/14: Champ Bailey Unable To Intercept No. 24 From Corey White

Kevin C. Cox

Bailey couldn't pry his No. 24 jersey number away from Saints cornerback Corey White -- the number Bailey has worn throughout his 15-year career with the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos. But Bailey said it's no big deal. He didn't even bother to make White an offer for the number. He was content to take Malcolm Jenkins' old No. 27 instead. In other Saints news, Drew Brees says he wants to keep playing into his 40s. Could we Saints fans be that lucky?
