Aaron Curry Traded To Oakland Raiders

With reports from multiple sources coming in, the Seattle Seahawks have officially traded linebacker Aaron Curry to the Oakland Raiders, for a pair of draft picks according to report.  

Curry, the Seahawks first round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, will be heading to an Oakland squad in need of some more beef in their linebacking core, while leaving a Seattle squad that seemingly couldn't find the right fit for him within their schemes. Whatever the deal was between them, it looks like it wasn't for much at all:

per Adam Schefter via Twitter:

As @Joey_Roberts notes, Raiders already without 2nd, 3rd and 4th-round picks in 2012, so didn't have to give up too much for Aaron Curry.

Jay Glazer tweeted that the deal is for two picks, one for this year and one for the next, meaning that the Seahawks made quite the fire-sale so to speak to get rid of Curry. On the other hand the Raiders have to be rather delighted with the steal they just got., with Curry bringing his 156 tackles (130 solo) along with five and a half sacks, four forced fumbles, and nine passes deflected in his three years in Seattle to the East Bay. 

So long Aaron, best of luck down in Oakland.
