ALAMEDA -- Fox Sports and ESPN both report the Raiders have acquired linebacker Aaron Curry from the Seattle Seahawks for two draft picks.
The Seahawks reportedly would receive a seventh-round pick in 2012 and a mid-round conditional pick (fourth or fifth round) in 2013 based on Curry's playing time.
The Raiders have not issued a statement on the deal or any related roster moves. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in a radio interivew a deal was not done.
Curry has already cleaned out his locker, according to several reports from the Seattle area.
"It's something that's in the works and we'll have to wait and see," Carroll said on
SiriusXM NFL Radio's Movin' the Chains. "There's still some stuff to be done to make that official...It's not official yet."
Curry was the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft and adds depth at an area the Raiders need help at.
Curry had been the starting strongside linebacker but lost the job to rookie K.J. Wright, a fourth-round pick from Mississippi State.
The Raiders don't need another starting SLB, considering what they paid Kamerion Wimbley in the offseason.
It's a low-risk deal for the Raiders that could pay off big if they can find a way to get more out of Curry's athletic ability.
Depending on the severity of Matt Shaughnessy's shoulder injury it is possible Wimbley will play more snaps at defensive end, which he does a lot in passing situations.
