The Philadelphia Eagles reacquisition of Vinny Curry may be cause for worry.
It started out as a few random tweets and a couple of posts by a few fans and members of the media on the most popular social media platforms. That led to both arguments and rumors. At about lunchtime on the East Coast, it became official. According to a report by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that has since been confirmed by several sources including ESPN’s Tim Mcmanus, the Philadelphia Eagles have brought their veteran defensive end, Vinny Curry, back on a one-year deal.
Rapoport also reports that the deal worth up to $2 million, stating that “he could get $1.3M fully guaranteed with a chance to earn the $2M with sack and playoff incentives”.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock as a fan, you know that Curry is a native of Neptune City, New Jersey, and playing for the “Birds” was a childhood dream of his. Over the course of 117 career games including five playoff contests, 105 of which have been in an Eagles jersey, Curry’s added 188 tackles, 29.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles to his NFL resume.
The debate will rage throughout the season about whether or not this was the right move. Here are two reasons why it should cause concern if you’re a “Birds” fan.
