    Aaron Curry hints he’s on the trading block (Vikings mentioned)

    Aaron Curry hints he’s on the trading block | ProFootballTalk

    Posted by Mike Florio

    In August, when we pointed out that Seahawks linebacker Aaron Curry had given up $5 million in guaranteed money under the contract he signed as the fourth pick in the 2009 draft, Seattle coach Pete Carroll downplayed the possibility that the revised deal was the result of Curry’s performance in camp, claiming that the new contract had been done months ago.

    But it wasn’t months ago. It happened on August 16.

    Curry has since been benched, hardly playing in Sunday’s win over the Cardinals.

    As pointed out by Danny O’Neill of the Seattle Times, Curry now has dropped some hints that he’s on the trading block via Twitter, suggesting that possible destinations include the Vikings and the Panthers

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Excuse my ignorance as I don't know this dude, but if he sucks and benched in Seattle, we want him why?

    He was the #4 overall pick in 2009 and considered a real "can't miss" prospect. He's extremely talented and very athletic.

    Any desire for the guy is purely based on potential. Maybe putting him around Greenway, EJ, Allen, Kevin Williams and Winfield can help him reach his potential... but who knows.

    I certainly wouldn't mind giving him a shot.

    The question would be, then, what would we have to give up to get him? I'd prefer not to give up more draft picks, but that would mean a player or two...

    Maybe they could use a WR who is familiar and comfortable with their QB and OC?

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    So were a lot of other high draft picks that never panned out in the NFL.

    Who would this guy be replacing? EJ, ErIn, Greenway?

    They got rid of Leber (who they should have kept) in favor of Dean/Adibi/Anoatulo all in the name of cap space.

    Not it looks, perhaps, if the RUMOR is true, as if they aren't happy with at least one of those 3 & are trying to replace him.

    Well he's an outside linebacker, so I think EJ is out of the question. Greenway's obviously going nowhere. It would have to be Erin Henderson, who's playing well and still has room to grow.

    It's unlikely we bring him in, and there are no indications that we will, but if the price is right I don't see any reason not to bring a guy in with this kind of potential to at least compete.

    Competition breeds success. Not sure anyone would complain about getting deeper at linebacker if the price was right. This guy would need to take a new contract though. I don't want the cap hit for a back up

    I don't recall TJ ever being labeled as a "Can't miss" prospect.
