Report: Eagles Looking to Restructure Vinny Curry’s Contract

BILL STREICHER | USA TODAY SPORTS

The Philadelphia Eagles have to shed $8.4 million in salary prior to the start of the new league year on March 14 and Vinny Curry’s name was brought up Sunday as someone who is going to help them get to the number they need to.

But are the Eagles going to cut, trade or restructure Curry’s big contract?

NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport initially reported that the Eagles were going to release Curry, who grew up a Birds fan, but later tweeted that the team was looking to rework his deal. He also stated that another team could potentially trade for him.

Curry is an $11 cap hit for the 2018 season, but the Eagles would only save $5 million due to his $6 million dead money value if he is released or traded. If Curry is dealt, don’t expect much in return due to his contract. Receiving a sixth or seventh for Curry is about what I’d expect, especially after the Rams got a fourth in return for edge rusher Robert Quinn when he was dealt to Miami last week.
