    To make it more easy for the Seahawks to accommodate a trade of Curry.. Pats are one of the rumored destinations..

    I'd love to see it, which means it wont happen.

    Re: Semi OT: Aaron Curry/Seahawks working on contract restructure

    If Curry restructures his contract again (although I thought you could only restructure your contract once a season), then I could see a trade. He is currently guaranteed $5 million in 2012. I don't see the Pats trading for him with that much money guaranteed for next year.

    Without a source, I am a little suspicious about this rumor because I thought it was illegal to restructure your contract twice in one season.

    I just don't see it. How would you rework a 6 year $60 million contract to something the Pats would be comfortable with?

    Re: Semi OT: Aaron Curry/Seahawks working on contract restructure

    That would be an interesting move, but find it hard to believe that someone can come in midseason and just pick up this defense...

    Unless the injury to Mayo is more serious than we know..

    Ok, I take my last post back. Looks like Curry is about to be traded and is in fact restructuring his deal. Possibly there is a new provision in the new CBA to accomodate this.

    One has to wonder how much Al Davis could have been involved might this be his last move?

    Re: Semi OT: Aaron Curry/Seahawks working on contract restructure

    The Raiders do love speed. They do have an interesting mix at LB. I see him having a similar role to what he would have had here, sub packages and special teams. Interesting that they got two picks. I'm wondering what the picks will be.

    Re: Semi OT: Aaron Curry/Seahawks working on contract restructure

    It does have an Al feel to it. With everything that must be going on with the
    Raiders right now, I'd say it's a good bet that he was involved. I like what the Raiders are doing in the East Bay.

    Oh well. He might have been a nice compliment to Mayo/Spikes.. But now he's in Black/Silver.. So he can rot :D

    As it happens, Al's last words was for the sweet embrace of death to please hurry, but the words were misunderstood.

    What the hell happened to this guy? Wasn't he a "can't miss" prospect?

    well...one good thing about Curry to the Raiders...about a dozen Daffy Duck clones at Rats Insider slit their wrists...you see, THEY were getting Curry...because they get everybody and Curry and Maybin would mean "beasting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", which is another weirdo facet of the Rat "fan"...everyone they acquire is a "beast!!!!!" and then when they leave they're "least!!!!!".

    Raiders had enough of the draft?

    Re: Semi OT: Aaron Curry/Seahawks working on contract restructure

    Yeah, no 2nd, 3rd or 4th in 2012, plus whatever pick they're giving up for Curry? They did get the memo that they can't trade compensatory picks, right? And it looks like they're getting a head start on 2013, with a pick from that year included as well.

    Pats have their #2 pick from a draft day swap last April; they used their #3 in the supplemental draft on Terrelle Pryor; and they traded their 4th to acquire Jason Campbell.

    Re: Semi OT: Aaron Curry/Seahawks working on contract restructure

    The picks are a 2012 7th-rounder and a conditional 2013 4th-rounder. A bargain, if you ask me, for a guy who was once considered the next Derrick Brooks with a bigger body. Maybe the Raiders coaches can turn him into a better version of what he did in Seattle.
