Aaron Curry's pending Seahawks departure

RENTON, Wash. -- Aaron Curry's time with the Seattle Seahawks appears close to ending.

The team's first-round pick from 2009 was not at practice Wednesday, his locker had been cleaned out and a teammate, fellow linebacker Leroy Hill, said he had wished Curry well with his next team.

A trade was in the works, but nothing was official just yet. Team officials had no comment.

"I talked to him and he came and said how much he had learned from us and how much he is going to miss us and everything," Hill said. "I think now he won't have all those high expectations that he had here, so he can just relax and play ball. I wish him luck and I think everything will work out for him."

K.J. Wright recently replaced Curry in the starting lineup. More as this one develops.
