Tacoma News Tribune - LB Aaron Curry demoted in favor of K.J. WRight ESPN NFC West Blog - Chat Wrap with Mike Sando Rotoworld - Aaron Curry Player News Things to consider: The current LB corps still lacks some talent/playmaking ability Curry was probably one of the most sought after players from a Patriots perspective in the 2009 draft Many fans/draftniks were very high on Curry A lot of people were hoping we would trade Cassel either straight up or in a package for the #3 overall pick to grab Curry The criticism has been that he has not lived up to his lofty draft status and has failed to turn into a playmaker A lot of people said the same thing about Mayo after an injury marred 2009 -- will he ever be a "playmaker"? On the surface, Curry would appear to be an upgrade over Guyton and Fletcher, and maybe Spikes too He has been credited for having good pass coverage skills -- something we currently lack in the LB corps as Spikes is more of a two down player and Guyton is a mediocre coverage LB Maybe a fresh start in a place where he doesn't have a great deal of pressure/expectations stamped on him would benefit him and help him realize his potential He is familiar with and has played in a 4-3 for his whole career Still only 25 years old. Personally, I wouldn't be against looking into a trade for Curry. I admittedly have not seen him play much at all since he's been in the NFL, but I do remember how highly touted he was. I've also felt this team has been a bit thin on linebacking talent for the past few years. Aside from Mayo, I think there is room to improve, and I've been in favor of bringing in a guy like Tatupu to bring some more talent to the LB corps. With no guaranteed money coming to him in 2012, if the price were right, I'd be very interested in seeing what he could do for the Pats. Would you be interested in trading for Curry? Why or why not? What would you be willing to give up?
