The Philadelphia Eagles decided to bring back Jason Peters on offense and they’ll be retaining another veteran for their defense. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Philadelphia has re-signed defensive end, Vinny Curry.

Curry began his career with the Eagles in 2012 as a second-round selection out of Marshall. He would spend the first six seasons of his career in Philadelphia before being released by the team in 2018.

Altogether, in his first six seasons, Curry would serve as a rotational rusher for the Eagles, notching a total of 22 sacks, 63 quarterback hits, and five forced fumbles. Above all, he would be part of Philadelphia’s Super Bowl team in 2017.

But after cementing himself as an underrated piece for the Eagles, Curry chose to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018. In his first and lone season with the Buccaneers, Curry logged just 2.5 sacks and seven quarterback hits.

Seeing that he wasn’t a fit in Tampa Bay, Curry elected to reunite with the Eagles before the 2019 season. And similar to his previous stint in Philadelphia, Curry was extremely effective off of the edge, tallying five sacks and 12 quarterback hits last season.

After signing a one-year deal with the Eagles last offseason, Curry was set for free agency yet again. However, after months of gauging interest, Curry and Philadelphia were able to negotiate a deal for him to return in 2020.

There’s no doubt that Curry isn’t a flashy edge rusher, but he thrives as a role player for the Eagles. And it goes without saying that fans in Philadelphia will welcome him back with open arms.
