The Steelers made room on their roster for Paxson by releasing rookie linebackerPatrick Bailey. Bailey, who originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent from Duke, spent the first two weeks of the 2008 season on the team's practice squad before being promoted to the active roster.
