The Squeeze: Documenting Champ Bailey's Hall of Fame election weekend

Champ Bailey's football life came full circle this week, as he was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his home state. It was quite the journey, as you can see in the behind-the-scenes photos and videos with family and friends throughout the week.

The next day, Bailey and the rest of the Class of 2019 went to the Super Bowl, where they got to enjoy the game and received in-game recognition.

From the suite, Bailey must have had a unique experience. There, he reunited with actor and former Bulldogs teammate Omari Hardwick, who was also a defensive back at the University of Georgia. The two took photos with another fellow Bulldog legend, Fran Tarkenton; civil rights leader and congressman John Lewis; and actors Danny DeVito and Woody Harrelson and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

The final event of the weekend for Bailey was a special one. On the morning after the Super Bowl, Bailey and the rest of the Class got fitted for their gold jackets and had measurements taken for their busts that will go in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Gallery in Canton, Ohio.
