Eagles re-sign Vinny Curry

Per multiple reports, the Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed defensive end Vinny Curry. The 32-year-old is back with the Eagles for his second year in a row after he left for Tampa Bay back in 2018.

The #Eagles are re-signing DE Vinny Curry, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Coming off a five-sack season (most for him since 2014), he’s back to extend his second run with the team.

Curry, a second-round pick in 2012 of the Eagles, spent his first six seasons with Philly, culminating in a Super Bowl LII win to cap the 2017-18 season. In March of 2018, Curry signed a three-year deal with the Bucs worth $23 million, but was released this offseason after recording just 2.5 sacks in 12 games. Curry's best season came in 2014 when he recorded 9.0 sacks and four forced fumbles. 

This marks the third time that Curry is signing with the Eagles.

The deal is for one year and is worth up to $2 million according to Ian Rapoport. Curry will receive $1.3 million guaranteed with $700k in sack and playoff incentives. 

Curry joins a bolstered defensive line with the offseason addition of Javon Hargrave. Those two will join Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, Malik Jackson, Genard Avery, Derek Barnett, Casey Toohill, and Anthony Rush. The defensive end spot now features six players with the addition of Curry.

Here are 94WIP's Eliot Shorr-Parks' thoughts on the position headed into training camp before the Eagles signed Curry:

Defensive End (5): Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, Josh Sweat, Genard Avery, Casey Toohill
Analysis: The Eagles depth at defensive end is not what it used to be, as Graham is the only real impact player they have at the position. Graham, Barnett, Sweat and Avery are all locks, although Avery could play more of a hybrid DE/LB position. Toohill will be given every chance to win a roster spot, as he comes to the NFL with a strong set of pass rusher moves. The Eagles really need a young player to step up at this position. This feels like a make-or-break training camp for Shareef Miller.
