Actually, when Morey was cut, 14 other Eagles were cut the same day. So to say he was cut so they could keep Pinkston, Mitchell, Lewis, McMullen, or Perez is a reach. Another quote from the article that announced he was cut was:

"Morey was a mild surprise, earning MVP honors while finishing second on the Eagles with 28 special-teams tackles. He played all 16 games and returned seven kicks for a 13.3-yard average."

I just disagree with you that a 6th receiver spot is more valuable than a special teams ace. It would be great if that guy could perform both jobs, but if I had to choose a guy that MIGHT play a down or two in a game or a guy that will get a couple tackles on special teams.....I'd take the later.
