The Eagles might not have a personnel man yet, but they’ve got someone to pass out checks.
Defensive end Vinny Curry is the latest to cash in on the Eagles’ post-Chip Kelly spending spree, agreeing to a five-year deal worth $47.25 million, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
Curry was central to their plans moving forward, as they shift to a 4-3 defense.
He joins tackle Lane Johnson and tight end Zach Ertz with new deals since Kelly was fired, and Howie Roseman resumed control of the football operation. And Roseman has brought back the Joe Banner tradition of locking up young players to long-term deals, handling much of their offseason business before the offseason even starts.
Now they can focus on either signing Sam Bradford or finding a quarterback.
