    Steelers re-sign former ROY Patrick Bailey

    not exactly earth-shattering news, but Bailey was our Rookie of the Year two seasons ago. i think he'll have a difficult time making the roster this year though, but competition is always a good thing.


    Steelers | Bailey re-signed

    Tue, 16 Mar 2010

    Adam Caplan, of Scout.com, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed exclusive rights free-agent LB Patrick Bailey. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    I'm glad to see him back, especially since he went to high school here in San Antonio (Alamo Heights)!

    How do you go from ROY to basically can't make the team


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    We have a lack of depth at OL. Notice a lot of our backup signings are special teams demons. I doubt that is an accident. I think he will make the team.

    Patrick Bailey was a bit of a disappointment on special teams this past season. If he's going to make the team this season he better revert back to the way he covered kicks his rookie year. If he does so, he makes the team. If he doesn't, one of those other special teams demons we've been bringing in will take Bailey's roster spot.

    Yeah, you noticed him out there as a rookie (he punctuated the season with a huge hit on the free kick following the safety in the 4th quarter in the Super Bowl). However, last season, he seemed to be invisible. He's not good enough to be a regular OLB if something happens to Harrison or Woodley, so I think his time on the roster may be short if we are able to draft a legit backup OLB or two that can also play some special teams (i.e. not another Bruce Davis).

    Bailey making the team just shows the lack of depth we have at LB. We use to have James Harrison as a ST stud and now we have Patrick Bailey. Enough said.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner
