Former Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey will be inducted into the team's Ring of Fame, the Broncos announced Monday.

Bailey, the 33rd member of the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame, was chosen by the selection committee at its annual meeting. 

Bailey’s Ring of Fame induction ceremony will take place during the Broncos’ game against Tennessee on Sunday, Oct. 13 at Broncos Stadium at Mile High during the Broncos’ ‘Fantennial Weekend,' in celebration of the NFL’s 100th season.

“It comes as no surprise that Champ has been voted into the Broncos’ Ring of Fame in his first year of eligibility,” said Broncos President & CEO Joe Ellis said. “Not only did he make so many incredible plays as a Bronco, but the consistency and leadership he brought to this organization for 10 seasons as a perennial All-Pro was second-to-none."

Bailey will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, Aug. 3.

“To see the way Champ’s career has been appreciated over the last four months—first by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and now as our newest Ring of Famer—is very special for us," added Ellis. "We congratulate Champ on this well-deserved honor and look forward to celebrating everything he’s meant to the Broncos in October.”

Bailey becomes the first Bronco to be selected to the Ring of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the same season. He'll join Louis Wright as the only cornerbacks in franchise history voted into the Ring of Fame.
