Aaron Curry, who was the fourth-overall pick in the 2009 draft, will talk to the Giants on Thursday.
The 6-2, 255-pound linebacker hasn’t played since he was cut by the Oakland Raiders last November in part due to chronic knee problems that helped derail his career.
But he’s been working out and feels healthy, a source said, and has drawn the interest of several NFL teams. The Giants will get the first look at him, beginning when Curry arrives in New Jersey on Wednesday night.
Curry, a veteran of four NFL seasons, is still only 27 years old. But he never quite lived up to all his promise. The former Butkus Award winner – given to the nation’s best collegiate linebacker – had just 5 ½ sacks in his first two NFL seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. In his third season, 2011, he lost his starting job early and was traded to the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 12 (for a seventh-round pick in 2012 and a fifth-rounder in 2013).
