Sitting Down With… Steve Morley
Sitting Down With… is a Blue Bomber Talk series that is featured on the blog on a semi-regular basis. The mandate of the series is simple: to sit down with veteran or retired CFL players and give them a chance to tell their story. The player featured in this article is Steve Morley.
Steve Morley was a member of the CIS Atlantic Conference’s St. Mary’s Huskies from 1999-2002, winning back-to-back Vanier Cups in his junior and senior seasons. Drafted first overall in the 2003 CFL draft by the Calgary Stampeders, Morley spent the 2004-2007 seasons between the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, and Seattle Seahawks before returning north to play for the Toronto Argonauts in the 2007 campaign. After a one-year stint with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2008, Morley signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as a free agent prior to the 2009 season. Morley went on to play for the blue and gold for six seasons, winning an East Division Championship in 2011. Over his eleven years as a professional football player, Morley received playing time at all five positions along the offensive line.
On September 13, 2015 I was able to conduct an interview with Morley reflecting on his career and his departure from the Winnipeg Football Club this past April. This is the edited transcript of that interview.[standout-css3-button href=”http://3downnation.com/2015/09/16/sitting-down-with-steve-morley/”]Read More[/standout-css3-button]
