    Re: Oakland wave Aaron Curry, any interest?



    Let's see drafted by the Raiders, traded by the raiders, reacquired by the raiders and cut by the Raiders. That's bad. Definition of a true bust so I'm not sure what a change of scenery here in Baltimore is going to do when we've only got 6 games left. I'll pass.

    He was drafted by Seattle.

    Curry had the same issue with the Seahawks. That's why they dumped him. Pete was sick of trying to convince Curry to do what he was supposed to. Finally he had enough and traded him for almost nothing.

    Curry can join Gholston and Maybin in the high 1st round bust club. I wouldn't go near a player who doesn't listen to his coaches.

    Maybin seemed to respond to Rex.

    Not sure what Curry's deal is. That guy was an outstanding prospect in college. I though he would be a top rated linebacker for a long time.

    The Jets cut Maybin again a week ago. Even Rex got tired of his disappearing act.

    Curry is a prime example of a great college player who just can't handle the NFL game. In college he was given free reign because he was so physically talented that he would dominate offenses. In the NFL that talent gap is much narrower. You have to play within your assignments but Curry can't seem to get that through his thick head. He wants to freelance and tries to despite what he's told. That attitude will knock him out of this league long before his physical skills decline.

    Good points.

    LaVarr Arrington comes to mind. Dude was a DOMINANT player...but the Redskins got tired of him freelancing.

    got tired of his free lancing... or his constantly being injured?

    Id certainly take a chance on him. we got the room and the need for a talented player like him. One thing Ray is really good at is teaching guys to watch film and read defenses as to know their assignments. If he does come here, it would be his last shot and I for one think it would work out. Not very often you get a chance at a top 10 pick so easily. Thats assuming he clears waivers too.

    Re: Oakland wave Aaron Curry, any interest?

    Curry definitely needs to understand his role and play that role.

    However, how many times do we see (and accept) Ed Reed doing the same thing? Sure, he comes up with the big play here and there...not saying he doesn't...but there are a lot of times where this defense gets absolutely burned and he has been the cause of that because he was free lancing and doing his own thing.

    I guess, if I am the front office/coaching staff, does Curry's tendency to freelance outweigh his athleticism and upside? I'm not so sure that it does. Especially for a league minimum deal to provide depth, athleticism, and youth to the ILB position. He has no legs to stand on right now from a monetary stance and is going to have to sign with a team that is interested in depth he can provide down the stretch and possibly what he can provide for next year.

    The guy is talented, big, a hard hitter, and has a lot of upside. To me, it would be worth it to sign him to a 2 year deal, minimum salary, with incentives.

    You would have a hard time convincing anyone that Curry isn't or can't be better than Ricky Brown or Josh Bynes.

    A move like this would also give the Ravens some alleviation in the likelihood that they can't draft a LB like CJ Mosley or something.

    Guys like Reed and Polamalu get a pass for freelancing because even though they get burned from time to time, other times it works out great. That's one of the perks of being a HOF safety.

    I agree that playoff depth is crucial. I say bring him in and if his freelancing is really that bad, then cut him. We'd be back where we started.

    Agree on all points

    Absolutely and you won't hear me knock those guys for their free lancing because more often than not, it does work out in favor of them. I'm just saying, Curry is not the first player to think that he can overcome scheme with his athleticism.

    Any chance the final straw in the cut was his late hit on Rice and the penalty?

    In a sense another McKinnie where a team has finally had enough and cuts someone with stuff left in the tank but done putting up with the extras?

    Not only no, but hell no. Why do we always want to pick up other teams busts?
