    Updated: Wed, Nov 19, 2014

    ENGLEWOOD — Start with The Trade, since that's where it started for Champ Bailey and the Broncos. It started with a Redskins cornerback, entering his prime, being swapped for a 1,500-yard running back, Clinton Portis. It started with shock. "I was baffled, to be honest. I never...
