Aaron Curry’s Days Numbered In Seattle

Published on August 22, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Linebacker Aaron Curry’s days in Seattle appear to be numbered.

First reported by Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, I’ve confirmed that Curry recently agreed to restructure his rookie contract with the Seattle Seahawks, cutting the deal from six to four years.

According to the report, in return for giving up $5 million in guaranteed salary Curry’s due to make in 2012, he gets to become a free agent at the end of that season

So Curry will have earned $28.25 million in guaranteed money over the first 2 ½ years of the six-year, $60 million deal he originally signed with Seattle’s previous regime in August 2009.

Because Curry’s salary is not guaranteed in 2012, the Seahawks could release him in February without any financial obligation. The restructured deal also makes it easier to move Curry in a trade.

Drafted fourth overall in the 2009 draft, the Wake Forest product’s up-and-down play has been a heavily debated topic by both fans and league observers.

At 6-foot-2, 254 pounds, Curry is blessed with great strength and speed, but his athleticism never fully transferred to explosive plays on the field.

Further, Curry has not always been pleased with the way Seattle has used him defensively, as the Seahawks chose to take him off the field in third down situations because of his struggles in coverage.

The final straw for head coach Pete Carroll may have been Curry receiving a personal foul penalty after ripping off the helmet of a Minnesota offensive lineman and tossing it toward the sideline during Saturday’s game against the Vikings.

Carroll said he took Curry out of the game after the play and scolded him for his actions
