ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos will induct longtime cornerback and new Hall of Fame member Champ Bailey into the team’s Ring of Fame.

The ceremony will take place Oct. 13. It’s been quite a memorable year for the 40-year-old Bailey, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 3.

Bailey played 10 seasons for the Broncos after being acquired in a trade with Washington. He started in 132 of 135 regular-season games for Denver and had 34 interceptions. He also led the team to five post-season appearances.

His 100-yard interception of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the AFC divisional playoff game on Jan. 14, 2006, ranks as the longest in Broncos playoff history.
