Found August 28, 2013 on Third And Wrong:
Aaron Curry, an outside linebacker who was picked 4th overall by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2009 NFL Draft, has announced via Twitter that he is retiring.  Curry never quite lived up to expectations in Seattle and was ultimately traded to the Oakland Raiders for two late draft picks.  After an unsuccessful stint in Oakland, Curry was waived and signed on with the New York Giants.  The Giants released Curry during their 75 man cuts and it would appear that was Curry’s last chance. Here’s Curry’s tweet: AaronCurry51 @AaronCurry51 After a lot of prayer. Consulting with God. The best thing for my family and myself is to retire from the @nfl. I enjoyed it #DeliveredDefender Curry was considered a can’t miss pick by most scouts, which just goes to show you that there’s no such thing as a sure thing in the NFL and no spot is ever guaranteed.
