It’s been a long time since former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey has stepped onto a football field. Bailey’s last NFL game was in 2015 and his career was cut short after he was shot twice in the head in an incident in Miami Gardens, Florida in November of that same year.
Bailey’s injuries were not considered life-threatening but put his football career in jeopardy. However, just over two years later, the former West Virginia University standout is giving it another try.
He was the ultimate playmaker for the Mountaineers and the Rams took notice of that and drafted him in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. However, Bailey’s collegiate production didn’t live up to his NFL expectations as he only had 59 receptions (96 targets) for 843 yards and two touchdowns in 38 games.
Bailey is facing an uphill to be signed as a free agent when the new league year opens next week. Additionally, Taylor notes that Bailey is thinking about participating in Toledo’s Pro Day on March 19 and if he is not signed, he will go back to his alma mater for their Pro Day on March 29.
It should be interesting to see where Bailey’s journey takes him next as he tries to make his way back to the NFL.
Now, part of that comes with some bad luck, as Lucic is dealing with a career-worst 7.9 shooting percentage. But the big concern at this point is if this season is not an anomaly. If this becomes closer to the norm over the next five seasons, it’s a big, big problem. Lucic will turn 30 this summer, so it’s not like he’s done as a player. We’re just not going to expect him to produce at a terribly high rate relative to earlier in his career. In truth, Lucic’s numbers haven’t necessarily been consistent year to year anyway.

Womens Xavien Howard Jersey There’s the cap space it takes up, of course, but the deal also comes with a full no-movement clause for the next three seasons before moving to a limited no-trade by June 1, 2021 (hat tip to CapFriendly.com). The Oilers are in desperate need of scoring help on the wings, but it only gets harder to make improvements when you have a player you’d have a hard time moving taking up a good chunk of cap space.
