Kevin Curtis ready to return from testicular cancer

Former Rams and Eagles receiver Kevin Curtis has missed the entire 2010 season while recovering from testicular cancer. Now he’s fully recovered and eager to sign with an NFL team.

Kevin is ready. He’s feeling great,” Ryan Tollner, Curtis’ agent, told Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com.

Curtis had surgery on September 23 to remove a cancerous testicle, but he said his prognosis was good and that “I’m pretty fortunate, really.”

After catching 77 passes for 1,110 yards in 2007, Curtis was slowed by knee problems in 2008 and 2009, but Tollner said Curtis’s knee is now 100 percent, and Curtis is anxious to help some team make the playoffs.

    Agreed on the Rams. I mean really, he has to be better than some of the other bodies they have at WR. Bring him in.

    Now he’ll go onto win 7 Super Bowls. Losing ball make champion.

    As the world’s worst radio host Doc Walker would say, “That guy’s a baller!”

    Holy crap, I didn’t know White Lightning had testicular cancer! He was a good receiver. Very overlooked.

    Just keep Shaun Smith away from him.

    How long before Curtis hears from Brian Cushing about the struggles of going through a cancer scare…oh, wait…

    Great news I hope the Rams pick him up and plays well. It’s hard not to root for the guy.

    I love the Susan G. Koman Foundation and everything they have done to raise awareness for breast cancer. But it’s time the NFL equally focuses awareness on men’s health – testicular and prostate cancer. If they can wear pink in October they can wear blue in September. Welcome back Brian!
