Gaither was spectacular for Pittsburgh in 2022. He was a go to guy, no matter who the quarterback was. Bailey racked up 328 receiving yards, alongside four touchdowns on the season.

One of his season highlights came in week five, versus Houston. In the fourth quarter, Gaither caught two touchdown passes from Vad Lee – including the walk off as time expired.

Despite the Maulers struggling to win football games, Bailey was consistent week in and week out. He put on a show throughout the season, showcasing his athleticism and strong hands daily.
Due to his exceptional performances in the USFL, Gaither now has a chance to pursue his NFL dreams with the Ravens.
