On Wednesday, former Rams WR Stedman Bailey worked out at Marshall’s Pro Day in an attempt to resume his playing career.
Alden Gonzalez reports that four teams have expressed at least some interest in Bailey, but he has yet to receive a contract offer just yet.
While doctors have told Bailey that his career is over after he was shot twice in the head while he was a passenger in a car in Miami, Gardens, Florida back in 2015, Bailey says he still isn’t ready to give up on playing again.
“I never had a doubt in my mind that I’d be able to play again,” Bailey told the Huntington Herald-Dispatch. “It kind of hurt with reports from doctors that I may not be able to walk or I may have trouble speaking again. Me, just being a positive person that I am, I just waved those reports off like, ‘OK, we’ll see.’ I set it in my mind to show them differently.”
According to Bailey, he plans to participate in West Virginia’s Pro Day on March 29 if he isn’t signed by that point.
Bailey, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2013. He had one year remaining on his four-year, $2.736 million rookie contract when the Rams made the decision to waive him last April.
In 2015, Bailey caught 12 passes for 182 yards receiving and one touchdown over the course of eight games for the Rams.
