He’s reaching icy territory. One more slip, and he could go through the cracks.
Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reported on Monday, coach Pete Carroll left linebacker Aaron Curry’s role with the team up in the air.
“It’s how he responds and fights back and competes that will be important,” Carroll said after Curry’s demotion from the first-unit defense.
Curry made several responses on Twitter this week that probably weren’t what the coach had in mind.
Curry used his Twitter account to indicate that a trade from Seattle may be possible, he expressed enthusiasm about the possibility of playing for the NFL team in his home state of North Carolina and at one point appeared to refer to the Seahawks as “they.”
Perhaps, there was no significance to Curry’s words beyond cyberspace, but it was puzzling and can’t help what is an increasingly strained situation for the former first-round pick.
