After a couple weeks of speculation, it appears as though Defensive End Vinny Curry has finally been signed to a new deal. Curry was set to enter Free Agency in March and with rumours of teams beginning to pursue him following our report from an anonymous source who claimed the original offer was “not what he expected”, it looks as though both Curry and the Eagles have come to an agreement.
Eagles DE Vinny Curry has agreed to a five-year deal worth $47.25 million. $23 million guaranteed.

Curry was said to be at the top of the Eagles “priority” list when it came to free-agency along with both Zach Ertz and Lane Johnson. All three players have now signed deals that will see them remain in Philadelphia through at least 2020.
An anonymous source said recently that Curry “absolutely wants to stay in Philadelphia”..and after a couple of tweets that implied negotiations were ongoing, it appears that’s where the hometown hero will stay.
Curry played in all 16 games this season but only combined for 12 tackles and 3.5 sacks, being hugely under-utilised by Chip Kelly. With the team now moving to a very attacking 4-3 Defense..the sky is the limit for the Eagles best natural pass rusher.
