So apparently the Seatlle Seahawks are trying to trade their 2009 #1 pick, Aaron Curry. According to what I've read on blogs and Seattle newspapers, he has been a huge disappointment. However not near as big as some of our favorites like Mike Williams or Aaron Maybin.
I know people get tired of the "lets trade for this guy" posts, but I just wanted to see what others felt about this player that once had so much promise. He's definitely has elite talent and is a big guy at 6'2" and 255lbs. My understanding is that he is an OLB there but I don't have much knowledge about the type of defense they play. Perhaps he could be turned into an ILB in a different scheme. I'm not really trying to convince anyone that we SHOULD trade for him, just looking into it. There is nothing wrong with trying to bring in good talent.
His career hasn't been a complete disaster, according to NFL.com he has 124 tackles and 5.5 sacks in a little more than 2 years. His contract was recently changed from 6 to 4 years so its a little more acceptable. We seem to have made a habit of picking up players that didn't excel at other places. If we could trade just a mid-round pick, I don't believe that it would be a real bad investment. We wouldn't get a player with that talent in the draft at that position anyway. Granted it would cost more money, but making the team better is important. I find it hard to believe that Curry wouldn't be a upgrade over Davis or Batten.
Again, just interested in the thoughts of others.
