The Giants' search for linebacking help will continue this week when they take a look at a player who was once expected to be one of the league’s best.

Aaron Curry, the fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft, is planning to make a free agent visit to the Giants on Thursday, the Daily News has learned. He hasn't played since he was cut by the Oakland Raiders last November in part due to chronic knee problems that helped derail his career.

At least they can't bring back Clint Sintim. I doubt Curry leaves with a contract, they will probably kick the tires on every vet minimum LB.

If we can sign him to the vet minimum...I'd be thrilled to have him at that TBH. He's pretty solid when healthy, I'd just wonder how his knees are doing.

Not a vet minimum LB yet. I'd like Nick Barnett too, but likely in the same boat. The Giants may wait to closer to training camp for those guys.

I'm surprised we haven't even made an offer for him.

I'd prefer him over Curry honestly.

Didn't Urlacher turn down $4m a year from the Bears or something like that? Let me look that up...ah ok, it was $2m.


http://www.giants101.com/2013/05/07/why-aaron-curry-makes-sense-for-the-new-york-giants-defense/

Quote:
In 2011, Curry had 114 total tackles between the Raiders and Seahawks, with 80 of them solo. And per his scouting report, he's a solid tackler who thrives in an attack/heavy-blitz defense, something the Giants have used in the past, especially with their pass rush.

Curry has great quickness in the open field and can chase down any ball carrier when needed. He's also a good pass defender and would be a major upgrade over Michael Boley at the position, who was released by the Giants back in early February. Along with his great speed, Curry is a very strong defender and can shed blockers away in pursuit of making a play, which is what made him such a can't-miss player in 2009 and why the Raiders were willing to trade for him two years ago.

Curry would make for an athletic upgrade and choice to take over the reigns of the outside linebacker position that was vacated by Boley, and he won't cost anything more than a one-year deal for less than $1 million for a salary.

The one thing that experts said that Curry lacked was proper coaching on defense, along with being surrounded by solid veteran players who can give him that professional mentality, along with the feeling of playing for a winner.

Clint Sintim retired the other day. Was in the NY Post i think. Curry is a bust its unfortunate because even i was very high on him in the draft he was in. Urlacher id prefer

Considering that Rivers is always injured and Connor and Herzalich are stiffs, we need someone capable of playing in the nickel LB packages with JWill. They could give Cooper Taylor a shot there, but we couldn't count on him. Curry would make more sense in this regard. Urlacher would cost more than the GMEN are willing to play and I think he is more of an upgrade at stiff LB than someone who can play 3 downs. Urlacher's body is just too beaten down to give him what he wants. Might as well go after Dansby (who is visiting Arizona now and could sign there) or Nick Barnett for that price.

Per Spotrac, we have $4,468,227 in cap room, based on the highest 53 salaries. A vet min would cost $555k because of the vet min discount, which would make our cap even. We still have to use room for our 4 highest draft picks, aka the ones that would be over 555k, plus a possible Cruz extension.

We should recoup some more money after June 1st as some of the players we released we declared as such. I'm not sure the exact number that we released under June 1st releases but our current dead money associated with those players is 6,771,306, after June 1st and assuming that all were June 1st declared it would free up another 3,385,653 in cap space.

Ahmad Bradshaw RB 2,500,000
Chris Canty DT 1,700,000
Greg Jones LB 100,132
Martin Parker DT 5,000
Matt McCants T 66,174
Michael Boley LB 1,400,000
Osi Umenyiora DE 1,000,000
