Does the Signing of Aaron Curry Mean the Oakland Raiders Are Going to the 3-4?

Al Davis has done it again!

I know he's no longer with us but the acquisition of former first-round pick Aaron Curry reeks of Davis—the deal had to be in progress before he died. Davis loved first-round picks that didn't work out with their original team—especially when they are physical freaks.

Curry is a physical freak and now makes the Raiders defensive personnel even more 3-4 friendly. Defensive ends Matt Shaughnessy and Jarvis Moss are the Raiders only true 4-3 defensive lineman but they are injured.

Shaughnessy doesn't appear to be coming back any time soon and Moss is a situational pass rusher even if he is playing by now. So I can't help but think that the acquisition of Curry may be the completion of the Raiders switching to a 3-4 in 2011.

Turn the page to see how the Raiders defense has more of a 3-4 look to it.
