Seahawks Vs. Cardinals: Aaron Curry Out Of Starting Lineup

The Seattle Seahawks have had to deal with a lot of frustration from the slowly developing Aaron Curry. Curry has never made good on his first round blue-chipper status that the Seahawks so eagerly used to draft him several season ago. Now he's finally falling down the depth chart, perhaps on his way to an ignominious end in Seattle.

Curry is practicing with the second unit of the Seahawks behind rookie K.J. Wright. Yes, a rookie drafted in the 4th round is displacing him. If that's not a sign of the end for him, I don't know what is. Eric Williams of the News Tribune has more.

"I don’t even know how to put it into words," Curry said. "But it is what it is. … Everything happens for a reason. There’s a purpose behind everything, and I’ll find it and learn from it and take off running.

"It’s going to be interesting to see what happens on Sunday. All questions will be answered on Sunday really."

This whole situation is a little funny. A few months after the 2010-11 season ended, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll described Curry as "very effective" and "dominant at the line of scrimmage" (HT Bill Barnwell). Well, he'll have to be plenty dominant now, because otherwise it's not looking too good for him staying in Seattle in the near future.
