Speculation is that Aaron Curry is on the trading block?

Published on September 27, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Speculation around the league is that the Seahawks are interested in trading the team’s first-round draft pick from 2009, linebacker Aaron Curry.

According to an online report, five teams have contacted the Seahawks about possibly making a deal, including Philadelphia, Arizona, the N.Y. Giants, Carolina and Kansas City.

However, the report is unsubstantiated and has not been confirmed by the Sea-hawks.

Earlier this year, during training camp, Seattle restructured Curry’s contract, making it easier to part ways with the underperforming linebacker at season’s end if the team chose.

Curry agreed to cut his rookie deal from six years to four. In return for giving up $5 million in guaranteed salary he was due to make in 2012, Curry can become a free agent at the end of that season – two years earlier at the age of 27.

The No. 4 overall draft pick in 2009 was demoted to second team last week, with rookie K.J. Wright stepping in as starter. Curry played in Sunday’s game against Arizona recording one tackle and one assist.

Carroll said that Wright did a solid job in place of Curry, and that he doesn’t anticipate that situation changing this week. Wright was not credited with any tackles in the statistics.

“We’ll go to Wednesday and see how that goes, and see what that all means,” Carroll said. “But he (Wright) did play well enough to play again. He did a good job.”

Asked if he anticipates any further role for Curry in Seattle, Carroll had this to say:

“Yeah, sure he’s on our team. We’re counting on him playing and contributing. He was involved in a number of different situations yesterday. We’ll see how it goes. I’m not sure what’s going to happen this week. I don’t have to know right now.”
