Curry will start in Raiders' debut
Aaron Curry has only been an Oakland Raider for a few days, but he will be making the start Sunday for his new team against the Cleveland Browns.
Curry, the fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft, lost his starting job with the Seattle Seahawks and was dealt to the Oakland Raiders on Monday for a pair of draft picks.
Curry is getting a crash course in the Raiders system, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune. Curry is grateful for the second chance.
“It’s like a breath of fresh air,” Curry said. “One of the first things coach said was I didn’t have to worry about any of the opinions that were formed on me before the day we met. I had a clean slate, and that he doesn’t care what happened back in the past and it’s all about moving on to the future. When he told me that, I took a deep breath _ that was my biggest concern was if the opinions would pass on from club to club or person to person.”
