Eagles now trying to trade Vinny Curry if they can

The Eagles were already uncomfortable with the idea of defensive end Vinny Curry making $9 million this season.

But after trading for defensive end Michael Bennett, he’s now literally a luxury they can’t afford.

According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles are trying to trade Curry now.

While they were initially considering (or trying to talk him into) restructuring his contract, that’s much less likely now. And teams they’re calling will know that, so any return won’t be a big one. The 29-year-old Curry had three sacks last year, as he played through knee problems.

With more accomplished pass-rushers fetching scant returns, they can’t expect much. Bennett and a seventh-rounder got the Seahawks a fifth-rounder and wide receiver Marcus Johnson. The Dolphins acquired Robert Quinn from the Rams for fourth- and sixth-rounders.

If they can’t find someone to throw them a late pick, it seems reasonable to expect that Curry would be released.

  1. “Well that’s the end of the Eagles defense. One-year dynasty. Back to irrelevance you bandwagon Eagles fans.”

    lol…because the Eagles essentially replaced Vinny Curry with Michael Bennett you’re drawing that ridiculous conclusion? Like Vinny Curry was ever the star on that line that still features Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham, with first round talent behind them? Curry was a solid role player, at best. That’s some WEAK trolling, right there.

    Are you kidding me ??? Lol. They just got even stronger.

  3. If you’re the Browns why wouldn’t you send a mid-round pick the Eagles way for Curry? The Browns have the cap space and the picks to spare and they’d get a hustler to line up opposite of Myles Garrett!

    A Seahawks fan didn’t just call Eagles fans bandwagoners…

    Your team just got absolutely dismantled. The Legion of Boom is dead and the Seahawks will be rebuilding for 3 or 4 years to get their talent back.

  5. 3 sacks last year due to knee problems? Yea I’m sure teams will be lining up to give philthy a draft pick for the luxury of paying $9mil per for that type of production..pardon me but…ahhhhhaaaaahaha

  6. LoL… Bandwagon? Do you even know what that means? Philly fans are always behind there team, and this is the first time they won anything is 52 years. Bennet makes them better. Be scared….

  8. Cleveland or San Fran would make sense. Lots of cap room. Don’t have to job ’em in terms of draft pick. They just want hands clean of the contract. Since there’s decent amount of $$$ still left, take a 6th or 7th and be done.

    Nicely done, Howie. Aggressive. Love it.

    For a Seahawks fan to refer to Eagles’ fans as bandwagon is lunacy. Birds fans may not have the best representation, but the numbers don’t lie – take a look at how that stadium (including standing room) has been selling out for decades. Always in the top 5 in the league. Then, compare that to how there weren’t even any seahawks fans in existence prior to 2009 or so.

    Maybe because, if they wait 5 days they won’t have to give up anything. With his pedestrian play, he also isn’t going to command a $9M salary.

  11. Look at all the Eagles fans in here thinking that Curry’s 8 sacks over the last 3 years is worth giving up a pick and taking his high salary.

    If any GM makes gives up any pick (even Mr Irrevalent), they need fired on the spot.

    You’re assuming that if given a choice that Vinny Curry would voluntarily sign with the Cleveland Browns. That would be like going from a steady diet of Filet Mignon, (aka the Eagles), to Hamburger Helper, (aka the Browns). No, if the Browns want him they need to trade for him.

  13. Given his performance, the salary slot and the fact that the Eagles have to move him for cap purposes, if that Philly GM gets anything via trade, he should be GM of the year.

  14. This sounds like something Curry’s agent put out there, especially since it’s coming from McLane, who loves spread false rumors and stir the pot.

    The Eagles are likelier to wait by the phone for something than they are to start picking up the phone and calling people. If they hang onto him until June 1st, it wipes 9mill off the cap.
