Giants add to defense, sign LB Aaron Curry, the disappointing fourth overall pick from 2009

The New York Giants are giving linebacker Aaron Curry a second chance at making it in the NFL.

The Giants on Friday signed Curry, hoping the fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft can reinvent himself after showing little while playing with Seattle and Oakland in what has been a disappointing career.

Curry, signed to a six-year, $60 million contract with the Seahawks, lasted little more than two seasons with Seattle before being traded to Oakland on Oct. 12, 2011, for a seventh-round draft pick and a conditional choice last April. The former Wake Forest product played in 13 games for the Raiders before being waived on Nov. 16 after spending most of last season in the physically unable to perform list.
