How Long Will the Curry Holdout Last in Seattle?

88393627OG011
NFL training camps are well under way and over 20 first round picks from the 2009 draft are signed. Aaron Curry is not one of them. I have heard he is holding out for “quarterback-type money”.

The Wake Forest product was taken fourth overall by Seattle in the draft and is expected to immediately start and a provide much-needed impact for a defense that was one of the worst in the league last year. Curry will take over for Julian Peterson. Peterson was traded over the offseason to Detroit for Cory Redding and a draft pick.

What do you think? How much longer can Curry holdout before he misses too much training camp and falls behind the eight ball? Can he still come in right away and do what Tim Ruskell drafted him to do? Sound off in the comments section and let everybody know what you think on the Curry holdout.

    hell no….Curry and his agent are both being fucking retards!!!! We are in a fuckin recession…they are lucky to be getting the kind of money they do for playing a damn game

    It ain’t curry its his agent. I think he deserves 4.5 mil to 5 mil a year. He is a damn good player. Recession? What recession? Not everybody was hit by the recession. By the way Paul Allen is one of the richest people in the world. He can afford. Quit being cheap and sign this amazing talent.

    curry will be signed after kansas city signs tyson jackson. i am sure curry’s agent is sweating that. thier asking price will drop significantly. seattle is thought to be offering somewhere in the 30 mil. range, which comes out to 6+ a year over 5 years.

    Curry should get shit!!! just like every other player in the NFL you have to Prove you are worth it. Coming out of the draft saying you deserve 30 million…. Fucker you lost your mind, what the fuck has he done to deserve that? Nothing…. Tatupu earned what he is making by going to the Pro bowl 3 times in his first 3 years.. That is something worth paying that much for… This bitch aint worth 3 million… reminds me of Crying Ryan Leaf not being able to start and throwing a temper tantrum..

    If Seattle is offering 5yr $30M guaranteed then that sounds about right. Mark Sanchez, 5th pick, got $28M guaranteed.

    The monkey wrench is Tyson Jackson. If he gets more than $32M guaranteed it will force Seattle to up the bid.

    The NFL will put in a rookie pay scale guideline next year like the NBA has. With 9 players holding out from pick #3 through #14, it shows this is desperately needed. Also the Agents, who have other clients bringing in money, dont care and will push for as much as they can get. So a rookie wage scale guideline is a definite.

    That is right Stuart! sign already you owe it to your fans from wakeforest. We would give anything for your talent. Quit letting your agent talk for you. You have a college educacation to figure this shit out. Most likely for free because of your talent. Give us poor folk living pay check to pay check something to cheer about.

    What kind of bullshit is this, wanting more money when you haven’t shown shit on the field. Bad enough Curry don’t show up to mini-camp he is asking for money. Curry need to grows balls and tell his agent to stick it up his ass. It’s players like this that give NFL players now and past a bad name for this game. This game was based on talent and heart,not money. Show talent and heart first and then show’em the money. Now that’s what I talking about.

    Its time for him to sign and get into camp. Its getting to the point where the longer he says out the less he is worth for his first year. Lets see a contract with some big rewards for meeting incentives, and then prove to us all how much you’re worth on the field.
