Biography

Carey, 5-11, 202, was signed by Detroit on Oct. 25, 2011 and spent the past seven seasons with the Lions. In Detroit, Carey provided key depth in the secondary, playing both safety and nickel corner, but established himself as the Lions special team ace, totaling 67 special teams tackles in his seven seasons. During his rookie season in 2009, Carey played in 15 games with 10 starts for Jacksonville and totaled a career-high 51 tackles (36 solo), as well as three tackles for a loss, one INT and one pass defensed. Originally drafted by Cleveland, Carey was waived on Aug. 6, 2009.

Carey, 31, has appeared in 99 career games with 22 starts and has previously spent time with Detroit and Jacksonville, after originally being drafted by Cleveland in the sixth round (177th overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft. Carey’s career totals include 120 tackles (87 solo), 11 tackles for a loss, three INTs and eight passes defensed. Carey has seen action primarily on special teams, totaling 71 special teams tackles (61 solo) for his career, along with two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

A native of Norfolk, Va., Carey attended Norfolk State University from 2005-08 and appeared in 45 games, posting 179 tackles (113 solo), 10 INTs and 35 passes defensed. Carey was a two-time member of the All-MEAC Second Team in both 2007 and 2008.

Carey attended Booker T. Washington High School (Norfolk, Va.) and earned second-team All-Eastern District honors as a senior. Carey became a published author in 2017, penning, It’s Not Because I Am Better Than You, an inspirational tale of how talent alone does not always lead to success in life.
