KUSA - Many of the Broncos have posted on their Twitter accounts in the past 12 hours to say thanks and goodbye to Champ Bailey.

The 12-time Pro Bowler told USA Today on Wednesday night that the team is going to release him, and Thursday the team sent out a release that he was let go.

Bailey said he was not offered a pay cut to stay with the team, and he is looking forward to entering free agency for the first time.

"It sucks, but at the same time, I have to move on. I can't dwell on it. I know they're not dwelling on it," Bailey told the newspaper.

Here is a sampling of some of his Broncos teammates thoughts and pictures:
