I wonder if he would respond better playing in a 3-4 like DJ.

DJ and Curry in the middle of a 3-4 seems a bit soft.

Is a Charger fan really smack talking the score when our team is noted garbage?

Yes, laugh it up. You still have Norv and those skill position guys aren't going to be there forever.

Curry does have the size to play Belcher's role. He certainly has the athleticism to cover better than Belcher does.

Curry's problem as a draft pick was that it was way too high to take a guy that may not ever develop pass-rush ability. He seemed to be resigned to a role like DJ's. That said, he's a big guy that can run like a deer. I don't see any reason why he couldn't play Belcher's role, especially in a more pass-happy league.

I'll be honest, I'd JIMP a little if we gave up something like a 4th or 5th rounder to bring him in to push/supplant Belcher. That would be a ton of athleticism in our interior. The only question would be if he could be taught to be more aggressive in run-support.

Yeah, you make that move and you make it pretty quickly, IMO.

Curry hasn't performed at this level, that's certainly true.

But nobody seems to know why. He's big, he's strong, he's fast, he's agile. His football instincts were always good at Wake. It's not like he's some Vernon Gholston muscle head with no agility or football acumen.

He's a prototypically sized linebacker that showed great instincts in college - that's a guy you try to acquire cheap and see if you can get something out of. He's a perfect 'buy low' candidate because of how significant his upside could be.

I would trade a 4th or 5th for him. I wouldn't expect him to take Belcher's spot, I was thinking more along the lines of Depth behind DJ.

I don't see why any team would trade for him. He likely has a huge contract that someone would have to take on.

I agree with you that he has all the makeup of someone who can be really good, but it just hasn't translated.

Why couldn't he take Belcher's spot?

What physical attribute does Belcher have that Curry lacks?

If you take him on, you have him as a 'swing' backer for a few weeks and sometime around week 8, you insert him as a starter.

There's nothing that physically prevents him from being excellent as the SILB (or whatever the hell we call Belcher's role). It would be a matter of attitude and coaching. If you get it there, he could be truly excellent at it.

I watch a lot of Seahawks games since they are the local team. Curry has been absolutely invisible.

Trade for him to keep him off the market. His signing bonus has already been paid so not another dime of his contract is guaranteed.

Then you take that massive pile of cap space you have and offer to re-structure a deal in a manner that gives him a 'big boy' roster bonus next season and a promise to re-up thereafter if he excels. The Chiefs, if nothing else, have shown a willingness to take care of their own.

The Chiefs would have leverage there - they can cut him the day after trading for him and not pay him a dime. It's worth the cost of a 5th rounder to get first crack at re-structuring his deal and seeing what you have in him, IMO.

Once again.....maybe he's better suited for the 3-4.

Curry's problem is that he doesn't get enough tackles, sacks or INT's. if he solve that. He would be a good player

Hell maybe Seattle will put him on Craigslist like they did their safety.

Herm: Chiefs should pick Curry
Herm Edwards gave his endorsement of Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry as his choice for the Chiefs' top pick in the upcoming draft.

"The linebacker is a good pick for them," Edwards said. "An offensive lineman is a good pick for them, the kid from Virginia (Eugene Monroe). The kid from Texas (Brian Orakpo) is kind of a unique guy, too. But if the linebacker is sitting there, he a good player now. He comes in and plays. He’s going to play right away. He’s a heck of a football player."
