In 2009, some pundits said Aaron Curry was good enough to go #1 overall. It's currently 2013, and Aaron Curry, the Seattle Seahawks #4 Overall Draft Pick is widely considered a bust of giant proportions. Aaron Curry found tremendous pressure to succeed: high expectations, in Seattle.
Currently, he's still a very talented athlete: who was cut from the Oakland Raiders in 2012.
The Bengals worked him out. Does anyone think the Ravens should at least work-out and invite Aaron Curry to our training camp? Anyone remember Aaron Curry?

Its been a long time, I think his mental edge has washed off after being with Raiders for too long.

I think we have one of the best linebacker coaches in the NFL and he can really bring out Curry's play-making ability. I hope we sign him. It'll give us options especially if we lose both Kruger and Ellerbe. He made 600k last year.
Surely we can afford that. Sign him for the vet-minimum.

Ah yes, bring him in with Maualuga and we'd have the most clueless ILB's in the league.
We can also sgn rolando McClain

Oakland defense doesn't play with any control or discipline because of lack of coaching, Oakland is one of those bad teams that for some reason don't get some of their young players on the field enough. I feel like if the team is losing let the young talent develop more in the process.
Curry is at the very least worth a training camp look for us, I mean we kept Kindle around for 3 offseasons for no reason, McAdoo has been around for 2 seasons injured. The Linebacker position will be in need both inside and outside depending on our FAs. Curry could provide depth similar to McClellan

If hes willing to come in for a SMALL contract with incentives, I think we need all the low end guys that have something to prove, that we can find.. Who was Corey Graham? Jacoby Jones was let go...We find guys and turn them into players. Fabian Washington was a nice pick- up from Oaklabnd for us, a nice enough stop gap. We need competition!!

If he comes for camp competition and is serious about wanting to become a better player & has a ridiculously cheap deal I see no reason why we shouldn't. He has underwhelmed his career but then again JJ was nothing too special before he came. I learned my lesson last year to not judge too much.
But again, why would we bring in a guy that doesn't fit as an OLB in our system and will most likely have to change positions and slide inside? Isn't that why Kruger took 3+ years to finally show what he had?
