ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Champ Bailey took the raw yet explosive young wide receiver under his wing and gave him insight into the mind of an NFL defensive back.
Brandon Marshall was an apt student when he was with the Denver Broncos, absorbing Bailey's suggestions and helpful hints each day on the practice field. He was receiving a first-rate education from one of the top cover corners in the league.
Now, the mercurial Miami Dolphins receiver gets to use Bailey's extensive tutorial sessions against him when the two square off Sunday in Miami.
But Bailey didn't teach Marshall everything. The perennial Pro Bowler still has a few tricks up his sleeve.
