Default Aaron Curry

The Bengals had him towards the end of the season. He is still young and is a playmaker when healthy. Had a knee problem last season but if healthy he could be worth the risk.

I would love to see curry get a shot at SAM. He has all the tools and our coaches seem to do fairly well with the talent that we bring in. I would be all for giving him a shot. Hell, I'd like to see McClain get a chance too.

They were looking at him for the offseason, I won't be surprised if we see him in camp. Whether he stays on the roster before the season begins, we will see. He's this team's favorite recipe of a former 1st rounder and cheap.

I love looking at scouting reports for a guy who has done nothing in the NFL for 4 years. Nothing.

He has 5.5 sacks in 48 games. Its not like he had 1 bad year.

I agree, however, I wouldn't mind bringing him in and trying him out. Give him some OTAs, TC and Preseason. There are some players that fail on one team and succeed on others. Ahmad Brooks comes to mind. It could be scheme or coaching or even the players need to have the ambition. It isn't like we are set at LBer and if our scheme, coaches and his ambition combine, he could be a great pick up for us.

Not bashing. All I'm saying is the player in the scouting report isn't the guy playing in the NFL. Same with Derrick Harvey and Golston.

His scouting report says he should be the next LT.

A tryout is ok as long as we have 3 starting LBs ahead of him.

Now this doesn't make any sense, we sign the guy now to compete for a starting LBer spot. I am not saying "sign him and we are now set". I say sign him, give him the Offseason to see if he can be what we need.

I still think we should draft a LBer and get one in FA. Curry at SAM, Burfict at MIKE and Howard at WILL going into the season wouldn't be terrible. Getting a guy like Hodges or Collins in the draft to groom behind Howard would be even better. Of course it would depend on Curry. He would have to be the guy that he was drafted to be.

It makes a ton of sense. We know he'll look good in shorts in off season because of his freak athleticism. In games is where he struggles. We'll need camp and preseason to see that...butwe need a starter for if/when he fails.

Don't you find it odd that no team signed him this year? Its likely a veteran minimum signing when he does sign.

It's a typical Bengal move to rely on unproven guys. Sometimes it works. Most of the time it doesn't like #2 wr.

If we already HAVE a starting SAM LBer then we wouldn't NEED to bring anyone in now would we?

I don't find it that odd considering that he was injured and he did not have great tape. However what I am suggesting is that he be brought in to compete for the open SAM spot. Should we have have a back up plan? Yes, but that doesn't mean not to sign the guy for offseason work outs and TC and Preseason.

He's a situational pass rusher at best from here.

Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. Some players sometimes have a light click on and they turn everything around. Sometimes it is the scheme they play in and sometimes it is the coaching.

He could be everything we are looking for and there is no reason not to bring him in this offseason. It isn't like we are giving him the spot out right. He would have to earn it. Why do you not like this idea so much?

I like it as long as we have already added a legit starter at that position ahead of him.

He's going to look good in shorts in offseason workouts. We know that. By the time we figure out he can't play in games, it's too late to add a legit starter.

I won't argue that Curry under achieved in the position and expectations given to him. However, I think he was improperly used in Seattle. Curry was never a sack beast in college. He was a wander the middle get to the ball play maker. He had few sacks in college, and he excelled at what he did there. Seattle tried to turn him into a sack machine, but that's not what he does and never has been.

Curry was never considered a great athlete or a pass rusher. He was considered a "safe" draft pick - a guy who wouldn't be great but you knew he would be solid and not a bust. Kind of funny looking back on it now, because he has been a bust. Sort of like Keith Rivers.

Would MUCH rather bring back Rivers than get Curry.

Look to draft Ogletree or Greene, and then Howard will be back and Burfict can still play.

Heck, I have more faith in playing Moch than Curry.

So you want us to give the position to another player who you think is a legit starter? Which is the opposite of what any good team would do. A good team wouldn't give the spot to anyone and let the best player take the spot. How many times do I have to say that bringing in Curry doesn't automatically mean we are set at the position and to let him compete with other players for it. The best way to do that is to bring him in now and not wait.

If he is good in shorts fine, I am sure the "legit" starter will look good in shorts. Once we learn he can't play in TC and preseason games, then try the other guy. We don't have a legit starter and we should bring in more than just one "legit" starter and let the competition play out. Don't hand the spot to anyone.

I agree. He was not used properly in Seattle and was injured in Oakland. He did under perform but it was do to the team trying to force him into it's scheme rather than change the scheme to fit his abilities.

Dhani did not do much anywhere and everyone seems to think he was the bee's knees. I think Rey is a better Mike the Jones but whatever.

I believe Curry will be signed here. He was Marvin's favorite player in the 09 draft.

He just recently re-tweeted a Cincinnati Bengals news writer. So he's at least keeping tabs on the team.

With Maybin's signing if they also sign Curry, we probably will not go after a SAM in the draft.

Maybin and Curry are both worth a look in camp, just hope we dont give them a roster spot like we did for anderson, and allen...

Marvin's on a mission to sign every player he wanted in any draft and did not get.
