The Rams made a flurry of roster moves today. The waiving of Stedman Bailey was one of them.
Bailey was shot in the head last November in Miami Gardens, FL. He had surgery shortly thereafter and began a long rehab in an effort to get back on the field again. He did not play during the 2015 season following that incident.
If you follow him on social media, then you know he has been training hard.
The Rams waived him with the non-football injury designation.
A few months ago, Bailey said he hoped to play again despite warnings from doctors.
“It’s still a dream of mine to do good things in the NFL,” Bailey said in February. “I just came off my third year of being in the NFL and I feel like I’ve got so much more in me. I want to at least have a 10-year career, so after three years, I feel like I still have a lot left in my tank to just keep going and continue to live out my dream.”
If/when Bailey clears waivers, he is expected to re-join the Rams in a non-football playing capacity per Steve Wyche.
