A league source told us that Curry received a six-year, $60 million contract with $34 million guaranteed.

The No. 4 overall pick, who played collegiately at Wake Forest, ran onto the field Saturday afternoon a few minutes into practice. The fans in attendance wildly cheered as Seattle’s new outside linebacker nodded in their direction.

Last year’s No. 4 pick, running back Darren McFadden, received $26 million guaranteed from the Oakland Raiders.
