Default Aaron Curry on the Block

More than any player in the recent past, Curry was touted as a can't miss, sure thing, safe pick. A good reminder that there is no such thing. I might be interested in us taking a look, but I'm feeling pretty good about our SLB these days.

#NFL source tells me a 7th rounder for Aaron Curry would be the most #Seahawks could expect. Even with his restructured deal...

I would absolutely trade him for Orton straight up.

Yeah, I think Curry was floating around as a possible MLB in some circles. Shoot, give it a shot.

Ya sure take a chance. New talent is better than expecting something new and awesome of Mays/Woodyard/Haggan.

He'll end up either with the Steelers or the Ravens and go to the pro bowl like 100 times

This guy is what made me nervous about Miller - I'm glad that so far he is playing as expected *knocks furiously on wood*...

No ****! Everyone talking about Orton, hell we can get a lot more for Orton if they're willing to part with him for a seventh rounder.

Orton would certainly beat him out.

I love the idea of trading Orton for Curry.

I'm far from convinced. And Tavaris still has upside too lol

What would we pay salary-wise? That seems like it could be the deciding factor much more than trade compensation.

All his guaranteed money is paid, so let me see if I can find his base salary numbers.

Former No. 4 overall pick Aaron Curry has agreed to a restructured contract that now expires following the 2012 season.
Curry surrendered $5 million worth of guaranteed money in exchange for dropping the final two seasons on what was originally a six-year, $60 million rookie deal. Curry is not considered in the class of JaMarcus Russell in terms of draft busts, but he's been a below-average starter with the Seahawks. The team may be grooming rookie K.J. Wright to challenge him next year.

--------------------------

That should put him at a little over 4 million a year, I believe.

I just read that. Why would he surrender guaranteed money?
