Here’s one you saw coming from a mile away. The Oakland Raiders have waived Aaron Curry just two weeks after he was finally activated for action this season.
Curry was already being tossed into the draft bust pile before the Raiders traded for him last year. The former fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft failed to live up to expectations in Seattle and did little to help remove the bust label during his short time in Oakland.
During the offseason about the only thing that saved Curry from the ever active axe on Reggie McKenzie’s desk was his willingness to restructure his contract. But knee surgery kept Curry out of training camp all but dooming his season.
Chalk this up to yet another move made during this non-rebuilding rebuilding year.
