After playing his college football at Brown, wide receiver Sean Joseph Morey was drafted by the New England Patriots as the 241st overall pick in the seventh round of the 1999 NFL Draft.
While at Brown, Morey set an Ivy League record for receptions (251). During his college career, he notched 3,850 yards and made 40 touchdowns. He was Ivy League Player of the Year in 1997.
After playing for the Patriots in 1999, he went unsigned in 2000. From 2001 through 2003, he was a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, and from 2004 through 2006, he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2007, he was contracted by the Arizona Cardinals to a three year free agent contract. He was selected in 2008 to the Pro Bowl as a special teamer.
On March 2010, Morey got signed with the team of Seattle Seahawks, though he never played a game for the team. Due to concussions hours prior to a training camp on 31st July, he announced his retirement.
Morey has appeared in 62 regular season games, making 11 receptions for 168 yards (15.3 YPC). He’s also seen action on special teams coverage and return units. In 80 games on special teams, he’s recorded 62 tackles (53 solo).
At five-foot-eleven and 193 pounds, Morey is undersized for a NFL receiver. As a pass catcher, he’s a fifth receiver. His true worth is on special teams where he has often been designated as a captain. He’s a smart player who ably uses his talents and works hard. He possessed the right speed, attitude and toughness for special teams. Morey started to achieve a point in his career where his skills on coverage units were diminished.
