Joseph Scott "Joey" Galloway (born November 20, 1971 in Bellaire, Ohio) is an American football wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. He was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks eighth overall in the 1995 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ohio State.

Early years

Galloway played high school football at Bellaire High School in Bellaire, Ohio. During his senior year he caught 32 passes for 608 yards and eight touchdowns. He also was a All-Ohio choice in basketball and lettered in track.

College career

Galloway played college football at Ohio State University. While there he earned many honors and finished in the top five all time in many of Ohio State's receiving records. During his junior year he caught 47 passes for 946 yards and a tied Cris Carter with a school record 11 touchdowns. His great play earned him First-Team All-Big Ten Conference honors as a junior. During his senior year he made 44 receptions for 669 yards and seven touchdowns, and earned Second-Team All-Big Ten Conference. He finished his college career fourth in both career receptions with 108 and receiving yards with 1,894, and second in touchdown receptions behind Cris Carter with 19.

Professional career

eattle Seahawks

Galloway was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks eight overall in the 1995 NFL Draft. He made an immediate impact for the Seahawks, setting franchise season records for a rookie with 67 receptions, 1,039 receiving yards and three 100-yard games. He also had success as a punt returner, returning 36 punts for 360 yards and a touchdown. During his second year he started all 16 games for the Seahawks, leading the team in receptions with 57, receiving yards with 987 and touchdowns with seven. During his third year in 1997 he made a career high 72 receptions for 1,049 yards and 12 touchdowns. In 1998 he went over double digit receving touchdowns for the second consecutive year with 10. He finished the season with 65 receptions for 1,047 yards. During the 1999 season he played in only eight games due to a contract dispute. When he came back he made 22 receptions for 335 yards and only one touchdown. Overall he finished his career with the Seahawks with 283 receptions for 4,457 yards and 37 touchdowns in 71 games.

Dallas Cowboys

Desperately seeking an elite wide receiver to pair with Rocket Ismail as a target for Troy Aikman, the Dallas Cowboys inquired about Galloway's availability in the wake of his holdout. Dallas would eventually pay a steep price for the speedy WR: on February 12, 2000, they traded their first round selections in the 2000 and 2001 NFL Drafts (with which the Seahawks would go on to select Shaun Alexander and Koren Robinson) to Seattle for Galloway.

Galloway's Cowboys career was doomed from the start. During his first year with Dallas, Galloway played in only one game after tearing the ACL in his left knee in the fourth quarter of a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He finished the game with four receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown. During his second year with the Cowboys Galloway rebounded from the injury from the previous season, starting all 16 games and finishing second on the team in receptions (52) and receiving yards (699) and first in receiving touchdowns (3), but he was not the threat he had been in Seattle.

In 2002, Galloway started all 16 games, making 61 receptions for 908 yards and six touchdowns. In 2003 he started 13 of 14 games he played in making 34 catches for 672 yards and two touchdowns and led the NFL with a 19.8 yards-per-catch average. He finished his career with the Cowboys with 151 receptions for 2,341 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

On March 19, 2004 the Cowboys traded Galloway to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Keyshawn Johnson. During his first year with the Bucs he played in 10 games making 33 receptions for 416 yards and five touchdowns. After the season he re-signed with the Bucs. During 2005 he enjoyed his best season as a pro, catching a career high 83 passes for 1,287 yards and 10 touchdowns. In 2006 he started 14 of 16 games making 62 receptions for 1,057 and seven touchdowns. It was also just the second time in Bucs history that a player had gone over the 1,000 yard receiving mark in back-to-back seasons. In 2007 he played in 15 games making 57 receptions for 1,014 yards and six touchdowns.
