Farnham impressed Morey by going through a workout called "Festivus" -- "It's a bear," Morey says -- at Fischer Sports in Arizona during their time together.

"He's a kid of few works, but he's a tough, humble, hard worker," Morey said. "And if he's in the right place at the right time, he can compete for a job and have a long career in the NFL. I think it says something that he could go into a minicamp with Bill Belichick -- who's got some pretty serious football acumen and experience -- as a tryout guy and earn a roster spot. That says a lot, that he's able to change perception."

As for what Morey sees in Farnham as a player, the comparisons are justified, according to the elder Brown Bear. Which is a big reason why Morey believes Farnham's got a real shot.

"Everyone in football, it's a very driven, small class of people that have that ability to make sacrifices and be accountable," Morey said. "It's a great fraternity and because he's got those qualities, I think Buddy has a chance to be very successful within it. And I do think he and I are a lot alike. He's more sudden and quick off the ball, and he's got a big upper body. He's strong, aggressive, a worker."

So it's safe to say that while Morey's re-acclimating himself to Carroll's program out in Seattle, he'll be taking a periodic peeks at what's happening back home.
