Former Seahawks top pick Aaron Curry tried out for Bengals

After being released by the Raiders, the former first-round pick tries to latch on in Cincy.

Former Seattle Seahawks linebacker Aaron Curry tried out with the Cincinnati Bengals this week, after being cut by the Oakland Raiders last Tuesday.

Curry, who never lived up to his potential in Seattle, was traded to the Oakland Raiders last season, and spent the entirety of the 2012 on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

For some insight on Curry's chances of signing with the Bengals, SB Nation's Cincy Jungle provided this commentary:

Generally (and historically) speaking, if the Bengals want to sign someone they bring in for a workout, it's rare (though it's happened before) that that player leaves without a contract. Files this under the due-diligence file, giving the Bengals information in case they're hit with a jam at linebacker.

Curry also worked out for the Chicago Bears earlier this week, but was not offered a contact.

The Seattle Seahawks originally selected Curry with the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
