The Seattle Seahawks have announced the signing of veteran wide receiver Sean Morey to a multi-year deal.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Morey (5-11, 193) was a seventh-round pick (241st overall) out of Brown University by the New England Patriots in 1999.
After spending much of his first four seasons on either the Patriots' practice squad, or as a street free agent, Morey finally caught on with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2003. Morey appeared in 16 games for the Eagles that season, and while he did not have a single pass thrown his way, he did make 7 special teams tackles, and averaged 13.3 yards per kick return.
Morey spent the next three seasons as a core member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' special teams units, earning a Super Bowl ring (Super Bowl XL) and posting 42 special teams tackles, including a team-high 16 during the 2006 season.
In 2007, Morey signed a three-year, $2.7 million dollar contract with the Arizona Cardinals. Morey set career-highs in receiving that season, catching 8 passes for 131 yards, including two for 23 yards in a Week 2 win over the Seahawks.
During his three seasons with the Cardinals, Morey continued to excel on special teams, adding 43 tackles and a blocked punt in 2008. Morey was named the Cardinals' special teams captains during both the 2008 and 2009 seasons, and made his first trip to the Pro Bowl following the '08 season.
The 34-year old Marshfield, Massachusetts native has 11 receptions for 168 yards during his 8-year career, and has 94 tackles.
