Found April 25, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles are looking to trade defensive end Vinny Curry, who they just acquired in the second round of last year’s draft.  Vinny Curry will be on the trade block. It will be difficult to deal Curry considering how little he played as a rookie. The Eagles would likely want a mid-round pick for a player they invested a second-round selection on last season (Rather than take Russell Wilson a round early. But I digress). So Curry may end remaining remain on the roster. But I don’t see how he fits. Curry was brought in as a 4-3 edge rusher, the kind that pins his ears back and b-lines for the quarterback. But with the move to a scheme that will at least have an odd-man front on base downs, Curry could get lost in the shuffle. He’s staying at end for now. He said last week that he weighed 278 pounds, up from last season’s 260. Even if he packs on more pounds, Curry doesn’t have the preferred body type for a two-gap end. He’s a generously-listed 6-foot-3. Maybe I’m missing something. Curry said he did some two-gapping at Marshall, where he briefly played for new Eagles defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro. Perhaps the Eagles will find a way to utilize Curry as a “joker” on passing downs. They already have two ends in Trent Cole and Brandon Graham that will be asked to play as they never have in the NFL, though. If the Eagles can get another draft pick for Curry, I’d make the move. The Eagles must not feel like Curry will be a good fit for their new 3-4 defense.  He would likely have to move to linebacker, which is likely not a good fit for him.     Need NFL Tickets?
