He then played college football at the University of Florida, where he was part of the 2009 BCS National Championship team. He also played track and field during his college.
In addition to the Steelers, Rainey played for the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL. Even though he signed with the Arizona Cardinals practice squad in September 2014, he was released by the team after just 9 days.
Besides the NFL, Rainey also had stints in the Canadian Football League with the Montreal Alouettes, BC Lions, and the Toronto Argonauts.
