Curry had minimal interest on the free agent market before the tryout for the Giants. Right now, the Giants are devoid of clear starters at linebacker, so Curry will need to prove he can fill that role for the Giants in training camp.
Giants HC Tom Coughlin mentioned that free agent LB Aaron Curry was “in for a tryout” on Thursday. Coughlin added that they interested in possibly signing him to contract.
“He was here last night. We brought him back in this morning and talked to him a little bit,” Coughlin said, via New York Daily News. “We’ll see where it goes.”
Curry, 27, arrived for his visit with the team on Wednesday. While he’s not participating in the camp and has yet sign a contract with the team, there’s a chance that an agreement could be reached at some point in the near future. We’ll have more as the news becomes available.
The Giants are looking for some additional help at linebacker, but according Vacchiano’s source, Curry has drawn interest of “several NFL teams.”
Curry, 27, was taken No. 4 overall by the Seahawks back in 2009 before being traded to the Raiders in exchange for a couple late-round draft picks. He was released in November due to chronic knee problems, so it’s a little surprising to see him generating just as much interest as someone like Karlos Dansby.
