NFL • Cornerback Champ Bailey spent a decade with the Denver Broncos, making eight Pro Bowls and picking off 34 passes even with quarterbacks only reluctantly glancing his way.

This number was hard to overlook: $10 million.

In a salary-cap move Thursday, the Broncos released Bailey, the team's defensive leader who's been a fan favorite since he was acquired in a trade with Washington in 2004.



There's simply no room for loyalty in the NFL, especially with free agency about to start and with holes needing to be filled, something that became apparent to the Broncos after a 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl last month.

Vick, Eagles haven't ruled out QB's return

NFL • Two people familiar with the situation say Michael Vick and the Eagles haven't ruled out the quarterback returning to Philadelphia. Vick will become a free agent next week, and the four-time Pro Bowl pick has made it clear he'll look for an opportunity to be a starter.

South Carolina's Martin suspended

College Basketball • South Carolina coach Frank Martin was suspended one game for harsh language aimed at his players during a loss to No. 1 Florida and won't be with the team when it plays Saturday.
