Aaron Curry stunned by his demotion in Seattle
Aaron Curry isn’t working out for the Seattle Seahawks.
There’s no other way to slice it after the fourth overall draft pick from three years ago was demoted.
Eric Williams of the Tacoma Tribune reports that Curry is now a backup outside linebacker as the team promotes rookie K.J. Wright over him this week. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has consistently praised Curry but Seattle either sending a message or ready to move on.
“I don’t even know how to put it into words,” Curry said, per the report. “But it is what it is. … Everything happens for a reason. There’s a purpose behind everything, and I’ll find it and learn from it and take off running.
“It’s going to be interesting to see what happens on Sunday. All questions will be answered on Sunday really. It’s a special situation. But it is what it is. All I can do is show up and be me every day.”
Curry has made 30 starts for the Seahawks but he just hasn’t produced on the field and the team has failed to find a way to take advantage of his athletic skills.
