The NFL's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Eagles have made defensive end Vinny Curry available to several teams before today's trade deadline.
Curry, 25, has appeared in six games this year registering two sacks, five tackles, and one pass defended. Last season, Curry appeared in six games registering eight tackles and no sacks. The 6'3", 266 lbs. defensive end was taken with the 59th overall pick in the 2012 draft out of Marshall. He quickly endeared himself to Eagles fans by admitting he was an Eagles fan while growing up in Neptune, NJ.
More times than not, Curry is a healthy scratch and doesn't see the field on very many snaps. He is a "high-motor" (people love those buzz words) player who has been pretty productive given the lack of opportunities the kid has had. The Eagles have been known to swing and miss on second-round picks (i.e. L.J. Smith and Jaiquawn Jarrett) but have also found some studs (DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy) in the second round too. I think Curry doesn't fall into either category but that is no reason to give up on the kid.
