Linebacker Aaron Curry was taken fourth overall by the Seahawks in the 2009 draft. At the time, he was considered a can't-miss prospect, and the team had to feel good about the six-year, $60 million rookie deal that included $34 million in guaranteed money.
But the former Wake Forest star lasted just two and a half seasons in Seattle before he was traded to Oakland in 2011. Curry appeared in 13 games over the next two seasons before the Raiders waived him in November 2012. On Friday, Curry was back in the NFL after agreeing to terms with the Giants.

The deal is reportedly for one year.
In 48 career games, Curry registered 190 tackles, 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.
