Scobey's NFL career began when he was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2002 NFL Draft. In 2003, Scobey led the National Football League in kick-off return yardage and was allowed to be voted for the pro bowl. He played for the Cardinals for three seasons before moving to the Seahawks. In Seattle he earned an NFC championship ring and he was Seattle's kickoff returner in Super Bowl XL against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and served as a team captain for the game and coin toss.

On May 3, 2007 Scobey signed with the Buffalo Bills, but he re-signed with the Seahawks on December 4, exactly one year after he was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks in 2006.


Scobey is Buddhist. He practices Nichiren Buddhism through the Soka Gakkai International, and has been a practicing Buddhist since he was five years old.
