Aaron Curry Rumored To Be Traded To Raiders From Seahawks For Draft Picks

Aaron Curry has been traded to the Oakland Raiders from the Seattle Seahawks for two draft picks, one in 2012 and another in 2013.

The Aaron Curry experiment appears to be over in Seattle. The disappointing linebacker was demoted by the Seahawks early in the season, and now it appears he's on his way to the Bay Area.  Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports:

Sources on Raiders & SEA tell me they've agreed to a trade sending Aaron Curry, 4th pick in 09 draft, to OAK for pick this yr, 1 next yr

As Adam Schefter reports, the Raiders didn't have to give up much to get Curry, as their 2012 NFL Draft looks pretty bare on the cupboard as is.

James Arcellana, one of our Raiders writers for SB Nation Bay Area, had this to say on how Curry would fit in with the Raiders:

"Curry has been playing weakside linebacker, although apparently he played strongside in college. Curry would not play strongside in Oakland as that spot is held down by Kamerion Wimbley, and Wimbley just got a big new contract. its possible he could start at the weak side as during the off-season the general consensus was that Quentin Groves should be replaced. Groves has been probably the best linebacker for the Raiders so far this season. In all likelihood, Curry will be used as a utility back up for all the linebacker spots."

In other words, don't expect the situation to change too much. Curry will be in the same role he was in up north, but he probably has a better shot at moving up the chart.
