When Aaron Curry came out of Wake Forest in 2009, many considered him a sure thing. The Seahawks ended up taking the linebacker with the fourth overall pick that year and five years later after being released by the New York Giants that sure thing is set to retire.
Curry announced his retirement from the NFL on Twitter saying…
After a lot of prayer. Consulting with God. The best thing for my family and myself is to retire from the … http://t.co/mLCkjm3PZb

Curry started 30 games in three seasons while in Seattle and was able to have a 73 tackle season back in 2010, but ended up losing the starting job to rookie KJ Wright in 2011. The Seahawks would later deal Curry to the Raiders for a seventh-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2013.
Curry didn’t last long in Oakland as he was waived in November of 2012, and then later picked up by the New York Giants in May of this year.
At age 27, Curry fell victim to the first round of roste...

The New York Giants suffered a huge blow in Thursday night’s preason finale. Running back Andre Brown suffered a fractured left leg in the Giants 28-20 loss to the Patriots. Brown fractured the same leg as he did last Nov. 25 against Green Bay, when he broke his left fibula. “It’s a little
Former Giants LB Aaron Curry has announced his retirement via his Twitter page:
Curry was thought to be a sure thing coming out of Wake Forest back in 2009 when the Seahawks made him the 4th pick in the draft. Curry never lived up to the hype though in Seattle and was traded to Oakland where he struggled with injuries.
Good luck to him in his life post football.
Recently there’s been a debate going around whether or not Eli Manning is Hall of Fame worthy.Before I give my opinion and provide data to support it, let’s look at the facts. Eli Manning entered the NFL in 2004 and has developed into a top-caliber QB for the New York Giants.I will support my claim with comparisons of a couple of former QBs that have had similar careers of Manning...
The New York Giants have become an all-or-nothing team, and nothings have been the norm lately.
Despite winning the Super Bowl twice in the last six seasons, the Giants also have missed the playoffs three of the last four seasons.
It's a trend that the hierarchy is not happy about, and the pressure is on for Tom Coughlin's team to get back to the postseason, especially...
On Thursday Giants QB Eli Manning acknowledged concerns about the Giants offense.
“We have to play better,” Manning said. “We have to be better in the red zone and convert on third downs, so there’s some room for improvement.’’-NYPost.com
It might be an understatement that there is room for improvement. In the three preseason games the Giants have played they have been...
In the fourth preseason game of 2013 with less than 60 minutes of exhibition football to play Giants running back Andre Brown has fractured his leg.
While Brown isn't the starter -- that title belongs to David Wilson -- he was an important cog in the New York offense as the bruising third-down and goal-line running back.
But he hurt himself against the Patriots on Thursday...
My oh my, Steve Weatherford. What nice abs you have!
The punter for the New York Giants gave us a reason to care about punters this week when he sent out this Instagram pic flashing his phenomenal six-pack.
To quote Emma Stone’s character from Crazy, Stupid, Love. “F**k! Seriously? It’s like you’re Photoshopped!”
Weatherford hasn’t been shy about his love for working...
The New York Giants running game was dealt a significant blow during their fourth preseason game when Andre Brown fractured the same leg that took him out during last season. If he doesn’t go on season ending injured reserve it’s possible the Giants make him their lone candidate for designation to return later in the season. But at the very least, Brown will almost certainly...
Tweet Andre Brown, who was expected to have a large role in the New York Giants offense this season, will reportedly be out four to six weeks after suffering a fracture in his left leg in the Giants’ final preseason game Thursday night: “I can come back from this … in a couple weeks,” Brown said […]
Giants running back Andre Brown, who broke his leg Thursday in an exhibition game against New England, is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with the injury, according to a ProFootballTalk report.Fantasy Spin:Obviously, the injury will help starter David Wilson, who will see a much bigger workload, but apparently it won't be a season-long change, just the half.
If you think that all punters are just scrawny little former soccer players well…..actually you are probably right for the most part. But that is not the case when it comes to New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford. Weatherford posted the following picture on his Instagram account a few days ago:
It would appear that Weatherford spends just as much time in the weight room...
New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle is ignoring the NFL experts and maintaining focus on building chemistry with his teammates and coaches. Find out what Rolle had to say about his expectations for the Giants' defense and whether or not he thinks Big Blue's a Super Bowl caliber team.

For the ninth straight year the Patriots close out exhibition play by hosting a familiar foe, the New York Giants. The preseason finale will be a chance for both teams to get an extended look at the back end of their rosters.
