Former Seahawks No. 4 overall pick Aaron Curry announced his retirement Wednesday.
Just 27, Curry will go down as one of the bigger busts in NFL draft history. He appeared in just 35 games for the Seahawks, recording six sacks before getting traded to the Raiders for a seventh-round pick. He fell out of the league this offseason after getting cut by the Giants. Curry recently admitted the $34 million guaranteed he got following the 2009 draft caused him to lose motivation.

Giants released LB Aaron Curry.

The former No. 4 overall pick in the draft continues to prove himself a total bust. The most telling sign for Curry's roster chances was that he was a bubble player who didn't even earn significant preseason snaps.

Giants LB Aaron Curry -- the former No. 4 overall pick of the Seahawks -- admitted the money he earned as a high draft pick changed him and caused him to lose his motivation.

"I was just selfish and self-centered," he said. "I was more about me than I was the Seahawks at the time. I was more focused on my own desires versus the franchise and the team. It was immaturity, and I’m glad I got past that stage." Curry inked a six-year, $60 million deal with $34 million guaranteed in 2009. He lasted just two and a half seasons in Seattle, and he surely isn't the first or last rookie that felt invincible after a fat paycheck. Fortunately for NFL teams, the new rookie wage scale makes it a bit easier to compete and get rid of a first-round bust. Curry, 27, is now playing for the veteran's minimum in New York.

Giants signed LB Aaron Curry, formerly of the Raiders.

Curry, 27, has made 39 career starts primarily as a strong-side linebacker in Seattle and Oakland. He appeared in only two games last year due to chronic knee soreness. Ostensibly healthy, Curry will fight for snaps at SAM 'backer with Keith Rivers and/or Mark Herzlich. The Giants' linebacker depth chart is wide open, so Curry has found a good spot to potentially resurrect his career.

Updating a previous item, free agent LB Aaron Curry stayed at the Giants facility for this weekend's minicamp after his Thursday visit.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Curry was still at club headquarters for "a tryout," indicating the team wants to see him perform drills on the field. Curry has battled knee problems in recent years. "We brought him back in this morning and talked to him a little bit," Coughlin said. "We'll see where it goes."

Free agent LB Aaron Curry left his Giants visit without a contract.

Curry worked out and took a physical. The Giants were likely just checking out Curry's knees and putting together their emergency list. Curry has worked out for the Bengals, Bears, and Giants since being released by the Raiders last November. Seven teams have reportedly shown interest in him this offseason.

Free agent LB Aaron Curry will visit the Giants on Thursday.

Curry, the No. 4 overall pick in 2009, appeared in two games for the Raiders last season, making one tackle. He was later released in November and never latched on elsewhere. Curry, 27, is reportedly drawing interest from "several teams," but he's going to have to show he's over his knee issues.
Mon, May 6, 2013 07:00:00 PM

The Bengals worked out free agent LB Aaron Curry on Wednesday.

Curry left without a deal, but Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson believes the sides could "revisit" in the offseason. Curry worked out for the Bears on Tuesday.
Wed, Nov 28, 2012 07:31:00 PM

The Bears worked out free agent LB Aaron Curry on Tuesday.

He left without a contract. It was Curry's first known workout since he was cut loose by the Raiders last week. The Bears were just likely updating their emergency list.
Tue, Nov 27, 2012 10:39:00 PM

Raiders waived LB Aaron Curry.

Curry missed most of the offseason, all of camp, and the first eight games with knee soreness. Activated from the PUP list, he played just 15 snaps versus the Ravens and three against the Saints last week. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2009 draft may have to prove that his knee is at full strength before landing another job.
Tue, Nov 20, 2012 02:41:00 PM

Raiders activated LB Aaron Curry (knee) off PUP.

Curry was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2009 draft, but he won't have a major impact for the Raiders. They're solid on the weak side with rookie Miles Burris impressing in a big way. Curry will be depth and can help on special teams. LB Vic So'oto was waived in a corresponding move.
Tue, Nov 6, 2012 11:31:00 AM

Raiders LB Aaron Curry (PUP, knee) will not be activated for Week 9 against the Buccaneers.

The decision on Curry will be delayed for at least another week. The Raiders have until Wednesday to activate, waive him or place him on injured reserve. Beat writer Steve Corkran expects Curry to be used primarily on special teams and as a reserve linebacker if he's added to the 53-man roster.
Sat, Nov 3, 2012 08:55:00 PM

The Raiders have not ruled out the possibility of activating LB Aaron Curry (PUP, knee) for Week 9 against the Buccaneers.

Coach Dennis Allen sounded optimistic about activating Curry earlier in the week, but took a step back on Friday. "I’ll make that decision, probably, whenever I need to, whenever I feel it’s the right thing for our football team, and we’ve still got time to do that," Allen said. "I’m not going to make that decision before I have to." The Raiders have to decide by Wednesday whether to activate Curry, waive him or place him on season-ending Injured Reserve.
Sat, Nov 3, 2012 10:31:00 AM

The Raiders are considering activating LB Aaron Curry (PUP, knee) for Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Curry returned to practice last week and could be added to the 53-man roster Sunday. If activated, he'll likely be limited to special teams and back-up at all three linebacker spots.
Fri, Oct 26, 2012 06:17:00 PM

Raiders WLB Aaron Curry (knee) resumed practicing Wednesday for the first time since landing on the PUP list in September.

The Raiders now have 21 days to decide whether to activate Curry from the PUP list. He was apparently no worse for the wear in practice. "He was being extra physical," safety Tyvon Branch said. "That's what we expect of him."
