6th round pick Don Carey's family...

is unlikely to be wearing brown and orange in the player's family section should he make the team. From the article: Point 5: Norfolk State cornerback Don Carey wins the award for the funniest NFL draft story of 2009. The 5-foot-11, 192-pound defensive back worked out for the Pittsburgh Steelers twice and had an official visit with the team. He also had visits with the Dolphins and the Seahawks, and their interest seemed sincere, but the Steelers were so impressed by Carey that they had returned for a second workout just a few days prior to the draft. Everyone on his father's side of the family is from Pittsburgh, and the anticipation that a member of their family would be wearing the black and gold continued to build. Close to 60 family members showed up for the family's draft weekend gathering, many of them waiving their Terrible Towels, proudly wearing Steelers team jerseys and hats that they've worn for years. In the beginning moments of the sixth round, the phone rang. The anticipation built to a feverish pitch as Carey learned that he's been drafted ... by the Cleveland Browns, a divisional arch-rival. So how did his family react? "They told me, we hope you have a good game, but that you lose — and don't hurt nobody," Carey said with a laugh. Carey captured the moment well in a message that he sent out through Twitter shortly after our talk. "Terrible towel $15. Polamalu jersey $65. Season tickets $3,000. The look on his face when his son gets drafted by the Browns ... Priceless!!!"
