The Seattle Seahawks have announced, via their Twitter page, that they have come to an agreement with first round pick(4th overall), linebacker Aaron Curry of Wake Forest.
The deal is believed to be for six years, worth an estimated $60 million(with $34 million guaranteed). He's expected to report to today's practice. Considered one of the most, if not the most, NFL-ready prospects in the draft, Curry will join an already talented line-backing crew led by middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu and outside linebacker Leroy Hill. The deal comes a couple days after the Kansas City Chiefs signed third overall pick defensive end Tyson Jackson of LSU to a five-year, $57 million dollar deal($31 million guaranteed).
To make room for Curry, the Seahawks parted ways with former Eagles receiver Billy McMullen.
