The Oakland Raiders have parted ways with Aaron Curry just one season after shipping a pair of draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks for the outside linebacker.

The team confirmed that Curry was waived Tuesday not long after he fired off a string of tweets announcing his release.



The Biggest NFL Draft Busts in Y2K Era
Take a look at these top draft busts. Does Aaron Curry make this list?
"No longer a raider! On to my next venture! Expanding Gods territory," Curry wrote. "I am confident in my abilities to play linebacker, I know God will cook something up for me!!"

Yes Aaron a hot turkey sandwich for you.

I'm glad Von lived up to his hype unlike curry, he has to be one of the biggest defensive busts in recent draft history outside of whoever the cheifs perennial 3-4 de is

but... but... but... he's a sure thing!

"You're going to hand him $30 million or $40 million guaranteed and he's going to be like Matt Ryan," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. "He's going to put it in the bank and he's going to go to work."

He's a player who Mayock said "does everything well."

"You can put him in a 4-3 scheme, or you can play him in a 3-4 scheme," Mayock said. "You could insert him day one and he's a starter and your defense is better and you don't have to worry about him getting in trouble."

If we don't lose JDR this offseason I really wouldn't mind bringing him in for a look this offseason. Can't demand big money and if anyone can help him turn his career around it's JDR.

That regime (Raiders) hoped he'd be around for the long haul after swapping a 2012 seventh-round pick and a fifth-rounder in 2013 to the Seahawks, who'd seen enough of Curry after making him the fourth-overall pick in 2009 draft.


The draft is still a crap shoot even at the top.

Why would you want him here? He's an OLB, we have 3 really good/great OLB'ers already (Miller, Woodyard, Williams). I'd rather pass and look at bringing in or drafting a MLB.

Heck, many thought Mathews was considered the worst of the 3 USC backers, behind Brian Cushing and Ray Maluaga.

I'm not saying bring him in and do nothing else at the LB spot. BTW, Williams is a slightly above average OLB and it will be a miracle if he is back next season. So probably we have Von and Woodyard. Behind them the depth is spotty. Who knows with Trevathan and Irving...both of which seemingly play the WILL anyway. Behind Von there is basically nobody. Like it or not depth is needed and a LB guru like JDR might help Curry turn the corner. He is not going to demand much money so the risk is low.

If we were to bring him for next season's training camp that seems worth it.

Everybody in their mother was calling Curry the safest pick in the 2009 draft and a sure fire Pro Bowl LB.
He got traded to the Raiders for peanuts basically and waived the very next season. Wow.

Side note, will the Raiders continue the Carson Palmer experience or cut him too?

yep, even a blue chip, sure fire LBer drafted in the top 5 can be a bust. And LBer is probably one of the easier positions to scout and have confidence about. I wonder what Curry's problem is--motivation? Is he like Alphonso Smith and just expects the job to be handed to him?

The opinion on the Seahawks boards is that he is dumb as a brick.

On the Raider boards, they couldn't tell.

I remember in to office a Lions fan was bitching because they took Stafford over Curry.

The guy is a talent... but I say don't give him a look.

The thing is JDR seems to have a talent to help guys with the mental side of the game. I refer you to the speed at which we are playing defense, that takes reacting and not thinking a lot. It speaks to JDR's coaching and his ability to get the guys all on the same page. He took a group of guys and made them into a team.

I would never question whom ever they brought in.

So what's the guy's deal? How does a high 1st round pick get declared a bust before his third season is even over? I haven't really followed the news on the guy.

I must ask this question.

Who can step in and play the SAM if god forbid Von went down?

Woodyard, Trevathan play WILL
Irving plays MIKE and WILL

MLB is not the only need.

I thought he was MIKE and WILL. Point I was trying to make though, is depth will be brought in this offseason. It wouldn't be a horrible move to bring him in on a cheap deal tomaybe add some depth. JDR is a guy who can bring out the best in a player, it is a low risk situation. He works out we have solid depth and a big powerful LB. if he doesn't let him go for minimal payment.

Who do we cut to bring in an injured player? I say wait until he is healthy and can contribute before we cut someone. OTOH, as someone else said in so many words, if JDR likes him, I like him. :)

Somebody I know got it right ;D I was not that high on Curry coming out either. No way he was a top 10 player in that draft, let alone 4th overall.

Another lesson is avoid Wake Forrest Players like the plague in the early rounds of the draft. They have not fared well in the NFL...

Apparently, Aaron Curry got a 26 on his Wonderlic, which is a good score for a LB--even a decent score for a QB. I doubt it's his brainpower holding him back.

Wonder what his problem is.

Just sometimes when poor kids hit it rich, hell for the matter most folks win the lottery their IQ level get cut by 80%, with all the dumb things they do.

Hard to concentrate on work when your mentally in the club with a sweetie on your Lap.

Maybe he guessed right taking the test.
Who the hell knows.
But seems clear if he is cut by one of the worst teams in the league something is wrong.

It is not like aldais is still making decisions there. Dennis Allen seemed to have his act together as our DC so I'd like to think he was given a chance to get it right before Allen cut him.
