Eugene Edward "Mercury" Morris (born January 5, 1947), is a former American football player, nicknamed early on for his quickness when running with the ball. Morris was a running back and kick returner for seven years, playing mostly for the Miami Dolphins (at first, in the American Football League, then, in the American Football Conference following the 1969 merger with the NFL).
Morris played in three Super Bowls and was selected to three Pro Bowls. In 1982, Morris was convicted of felony drug trafficking charges. After 3 and a half years in prison, Morris was released after a plea agreement in which he pled no contest to cocaine conspiracy charges.
