New York Giants Make First Cuts, Aaron Curry Biggest Name to Leave
With the New York Giants making their first cuts of the 2013 season, the biggest name to get released is outside linebacker Aaron Curry. After being drafted fourth overall in 2009 by the Seattle Seahawks, he had a decent rookie year, but his stats declined in his sophomore campaign.
After his second year with the Seahawks, he was traded to the Oakland Raiders, because he was thought to be a bust and not a good fit in the Seahawks’ defense. Curry spent the majority of the 2012 season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, and was released in November of 2012. When the Giants signed Curry to a one year deal on May 10 of this year, I breathed a sigh of relief. After the Giants let Chase Blackburn and Michael Boley walk earlier in the year, I felt they needed to make a splash and sign another good linebacker. With the signing of Curry I thought, like most Giants fans do, that the Giants, as an organization, could correct all the negatives about him. I thought that they could make him into a force to be reckoned with, and at least live up to some of the potential he showed while at Wake Forest.
In retrospect, I could not have been more wrong! Needless to say, it is a shame that someone who had so much hype and potential has quite possibly seen the last bit of playing time of his career. At only 27 years old, Curry is now a free agent, and will be looking for his fourth team in five years. I only wish that he could have shown glimpses of what he once was; that may have enabled him to help out a Giants’ linebacking core that desperately needs it.
