Curry optimistic about NFL hopes

August 15, 2005

 Atlanta - There are not a lot of guys who played division II college football who have gone on to play football in0 the NFL.

Albany State's Walter Curry is hoping he can defy the odds and earn a roster spot with one of the top defenses in pro football. W

alter Curry signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent back in April.

 The Crescent City, Florida native was back in Georgia Saturday night where he played most of the second half against the Atlanta Falcons.

Walter Curry is currently listed third on the Ravens depth chart at defensive end.

But the former SIAC player of the year and career sack leader at Albany State remains confident he will be in a Ravens uniform for the regular season opener on September 10th.

Curry said "I think I have got a good chance. I have to keep up the hard work and impress the coaches and impress the veterans so that they will vote for me and give me a chance to play for the Baltimore Ravens."

August 30th is a big day for Walter Curry.

 That is when all NFL teams have to cut their rosters to 65 players.

The final roster cuts come on September 3rd when teams have to let 12 more players go in order to get to league limit of 53.

Baltimore's next preseason game is Saturday night against Philadelphia.
