Pittsburgh Steelers[edit]

After spending the first two games of the 2008 season on the Steelers' practice squad, Bailey was signed to the active roster on September 20 after the team waived running back Gary Russell. Bailey made a solo special teams tackle against the Philadelphia Eagles in his first NFL game, and followed that up with two solo tackles on special teams against the Baltimore Ravens. He injured his hamstring playing against the Ravens, and was listed as questionable for the week 5 game.

Bailey was waived on October 4 when the team signed practice squad defensive tackle Scott Paxson to the active roster.[1] He was re-signed to the practice squad the following day, rejoining the active roster soon after. Bailey earned the Steelers rookie of the year award for his play on special teams.[2]

He was cut on the 4th September 2010, during the Steelers' final roster cuts.
