    The Oakland Raiders acquired linebacker Aaron Curry from the Seattle Seahawks, though it's unclear if the former first-round pick will play this weekend.

    The trade, which sent Oakland's seventh-round draft pick in 2012 and a conditional fifth-rounder in 2013 to Seattle, was completed Thursday after Curry passed a physical.

    A day after cleaning out his locker with the Seahawks, Curry posted a picture of himself wearing a Raiders shirt and hat on Twitter.

    It's uncertain where Curry will fit into Oakland's defense. Middle linebacker Rolando McClain was limited in practice due to an ankle injury, while defensive end Matt Shaughnessy is sidelined by a shoulder injury.
