New York Giants Take a Chance on LB Aaron Curry
Linebacker Aaron Curry will look to shed the “draft bust” moniker and live up to his potential with the New York Giants this season.
The 27-year-old Curry is coming off an injury-plagued season with the Oakland Raiders. In 2012, Curry played in just two games while failing to record a sack. In fact, Curry hasn’t recorded a sack since 2010, his second with the Seattle Seahawks. In 2011, Seattle decided to cut ties with the Wake Forest product and traded Curry to Oakland.
Curry, who signed a one-year deal worth $780,000 with New York, isn’t even a lock to make the 53-man roster. The Giants likely decided to take a shot on Curry because of the team’s deficiencies at the linebacker position.
This past offseason, the Giants signed middle linebacker Dan Connor who is only a marginal improvement over Chase Blackburn. New York has Jacquian Williams and Keith Rivers slotted to start on the outsides, but Mark Herzlich and Spencer Paysinger will also fight for snaps.
It’s a crowded grouping, but Curry will have every opportunity to prove his worth during training camp and preseason. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell will be forced to find snaps for Curry if he can prove his worth in defending the pass. New York’s linebackers struggled last season to protect the middle of the field in nickel and dime packages last season.
In 2008, Curry was a can’t-miss prospect who the Seahawks selected fourth overall in the NFL Draft. Curry has disappointed during his career, but will have one final chance to prove that he belongs in the NFL.
