Early playing career
Born in Sydney, New South Wales, Mortimer attended James Sheahan Catholic High School while playing his junior football for Orange CYMS before being signed by the Parramatta Eels. He played for the Eels' NYC team in 2008 and 2009.
2009-11: Career with Parramatta
In Round 12 of the 2009 NRL season, Mortimer made his NRL debut for the Eels against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks. He went on to score 10 tries from 18 games in his rookie season as the Eels five-eighth.
In 2010, after a lacklustre start to the season, Mortimer reflected on 2009 saying, "We hit form that not many teams have done in the history of footy, so to be judged on that's pretty harsh".
2012-14: Career with Sydney
In May 2013, Mortimer re-signed with the Roosters on a 2-year contract.
