Supposedly he worked out for us. Thoughts on us bringing him in?

Per Hobson we won't sign him but could this offseason

Maybe I'm a sucker, but I am always willing to take a flier on a former top 10 pick. With very few exceptions, there is a reason these guys were selected so high. Seattle and Oakland are not exactly world beating defenses and Zimmer may be able to do something with him.

He's been really below average for several teams (albeit bad ones).

I'd bring him in during the offseason if the price is right. Let him go through training camp. I don't like signing him to the active roster now though, because just to get a look costs a spot on the 53. Willing to give him a look on the 80 man though, during the preseason.

By my count, Curry has played 13 games for Oakland, but I suppose I wasn't at the games in person to witness it, so my knowledge is based on hearsay. But I digress.

Reclamation projects are generally low risk, high reward propositions in the NFL thanks to the absence of guaranteed contracts.

And more importantly Mike Brown loves them. I can see it happening

Thomas Howard is a free agent this coming off-season. Is this interest in Curry an indication that Howard might not be healing up ?

It might be more of an inclination that they have all three starters from August preparing to hit free agency.

We have had success in the past doing this so i am all for it. Might as well look at McClain too. Low risk high reward. If anyone can help turn them around it's Zimmer.

McClain is a better fit for a 3-4 and he is the same as Rey Rey as far as ability. I would pass

I think Curry was the #4 pick for a reason. I wouldnt mind giving him a shot, but wouldn't count on him being a starter or anything

I'd sign him in the offseason. Not sure how things went so bad for him, thought he'd be a Pro Bowl caliber SLB.

My bad got distracted by the Babin talk (not even a top 10 pick I think??) wasn't referring to Curry.
