Vinny Curry DL PHI 2 years ago

Beat writer Sheil Kapadia sensed that the coaching staff doesn't see Vinny Curry as a great fit.

Remember that the Eagles reportedly fielded calls on Curry at last year's trading deadline. It's very possible that he'll be available again ahead of the draft, and some 4-3 teams should come calling. Curry is under contract cheaply through 2015, is just 25 years old and has produced when given opportunities. He posted four sacks and 22 quarterback hurries on just 337 snaps in 2013.

The Eagles are reportedly fielding trade calls on DE Vinny Curry.

Teams are reaching out to the Eagles because they've seen how DC Billy Davis has underutilized the 2012 second-round pick. In just 102 snaps this year, Curry has two sacks and nine quarterback hurries. The Eagles would be wise to get him on the field more, not trade him away.

Eagles DE Vinny Curry is active for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

The oft-discussed former second-round pick had been a healthy scratch for the Eagles' first two games. Inactive for the Eagles are QB Matt Barkley, TE Emil Igwenagu, OT Dennis Kelly, OG Matt Tobin, CB Roc Carmichael, CB Jordan Poyer and DL Damion Square.

Eagles declared DE Vinny Curry, QB Matt Barkley, TE Emil Igwenagu, OT Dennis Kelly, OG Matt Tobin and CB Shaun Prater inactive for Week 1 against the Redskins.

Curry's deactivation comes after he spent much of camp with the second- and third-team defenses. Barkley could be inactive all 16 games this season depending on the health of Michael Vick.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Eagles will use Vinny Curry strictly at defensive end.

With the Eagles moving to a 3-4 defense, Curry added weight this offseason and is not expected to be asked to play outside linebacker. "Vinny was drafted here as a defensive lineman," position coach Jeff Azzinaro said. "That's what he's doing. He's playing defensive end."

Philly Mag: Birds 24/7 believes there's "at least a chance" Eagles DE Vinny Curry doesn't make the 53-man roster.

A 2012 second-rounder, Curry has bulked up from 266 pounds to the high 280s as he makes the switch from outside linebacker. As reporter Sheil Kapadia points out, Curry is already on his third defensive line coach despite having played just 89 career snaps. Curry ran mostly with the second team in OTAs. It would be surprising to see the Eagles cut bait on a second-round pick after just one season, but nothing can be taken for granted under new head coach Chip Kelly. Curry needs to have a strong camp.

Eagles DE Vinny Curry was used in multiple roles including as an edge rusher during OTAs.

In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Curry said that although the Eagles defense has principles of a 3-4 scheme, it's not exclusively a three-man front. Curry weighed in at 266 pounds at the NFL Combine in February of 2012. He has since added more than 20 pounds to his frame. While it's looking likely he'll have a role in the Eagles' multiple front defense, Curry is still off the IDP radar.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects DE/OLB Vinny Curry to be on the trade block during the draft.

Curry was drafted in the second round last year to 4-3, edge-rushing defensive end. Now that the Eagles are shifting to a 3-4, there's been whispers that his roster spot isn't safe. Beat writer Jeff McLane says GM Howie Roseman would likely want a mid-round pick for Curry.

Vinny Curry lined up at outside linebacker during the Eagles' pre-draft minicamp.

Curry is getting some looks as a pass rush specialist behind Trent Cole, but is expected to be mostly a five-technique in the Eagles' 3-4 defense. The 59th overall pick in last April's draft, Curry will enter 2013 in the mix for a starting job opposite Fletcher Cox .

Eagles DE Vinny Curry has bulked up to 274 pounds as he prepares to play defensive end in Philly's new 3-4 defense.

Curry weighed 266 at the 2012 Scouting Combine. He may want to approach the 290s before the season. The 59th pick last April's draft, Curry played under 100 snaps as a rookie and didn't play at all until Week 12, as it was becoming clear the Eagles' season was over. Philadelphia is still holding out hope of getting some impact from Curry. They need a starter opposite Fletcher Cox.
