Stedman Bailey: A few teams are showing interest in bringing me back
Three year ago, it was presumed that Stedman Bailey’s NFL career was over when he was shot in the head. Today, he says he’s coming back.
Bailey participated in Marshall’s Pro Day workout last month, and he says NFL teams are telling him they’re interested in signing him.
Teams showing interest. A few teams! I would tell y’all who but I’ll let y’all sit on the edge of your seats, Bailey wrote on Twitter.
Bailey spent three seasons playing with the Rams and caught 59 passes for 843 yards and two touchdowns. He acknowledged in an interview on NFL Network that the chances of him getting all the way back after three years away are slim, but he’s hoping some team will let him show what he can do.
Batting practice was also called off, but players from both teams played catch on the areas of the field that were still accessible.
Rogers Centre wasn’t the only Toronto stadium affected by the weather. Water was leaking into the seating area at nearby Air Canada Centre about an hour before Monday’s NHL playoff game between the Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins. That game began on time. Saturday’s NBA playoff game at the same arena between the Raptors and Washington Wizards was delayed by a leak along the baseline.

The Blue Jays were rained out twice in Cleveland over the weekend and then faced the first streak of three consecutive postponements in franchise history after chunks of ice fell from the adjacent CN Tower, puncturing several holes in the Rogers Centre roof. The biggest hole, over right field, was roughly 3 feet by 5 feet.
Roads, sidewalks and entrance gates on the east side of the stadium, next to the tower, remained cordoned off Tuesday, forcing detours for fans on foot. The tower itself and several nearby restaurants and attractions were also closed.
Kansas City was also the opponent for the only previous cancellation at Rogers Centre. That happened on April 12, 2001, after a collision between two panels of the stadium’s moving roof.
