Seahawks LB Aaron Curry To Be Traded To The Raiders

The Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neil reports that linebacker Aaron Curry appears headed out of Seattle as he is expected to be traded to the Oakland Raiders.

O’Neil made the report in this afternoon’s online edition of the Times.

Curry is in the process of finalizing a new contract, which was expected to be filed with the league by 1 p.m. Wednesday. The next step would be completing the trade to Oakland. The Seahawks received two draft picks in the trade, one in 2012 and one in 2013. They are believed to be conditional choices, which will be determined by the amount of Curry’s playing time. Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported the Seahawks will receive a seventh-round pick in 2012 and a conditional, mid-round choice in 2013. Curry is under contract through the 2012 season after re-working his deal with Seattle before the regular season began.

Curry was absent from the team’s practice Wednesday. His locker was cleaned out. The team had no comment or update on Curry’s status.

Curry is in his third season with the Seahawks, who chose him No. 4 overall in 2009. He lost his starting job to K.J. Wright last month, but the two players continued to split time at strongside linebacker.
