Could Vinny Curry be headed out of Philadelphia? Howard Smith USA TODAY Sports
According to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles have had discussions about trading Vinny Curry before this Tuesday's 4 p.m. trade deadline.
Curry has been productive this season, with 11 quarterback hurries, but he has only played 163 defensive snaps. Curry's skill set is suited for a 4-3 defensive scheme, but the Eagles use a two gap 3-4 scheme. Most analysts believe that Curry's potential would be unlocked as a 4-3 defensive end with his hand in the dirt.
Curry is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Eagles seem unlikely to re-sign him after allocating a big chunk of their salary cap to edge rusher Brandon Graham this past offseason. Keep an eye on Curry as the deadline approaches.
