Vinny Curry could be the key to Eagles' defense

Curry has had an outstanding summer. For the Eagles, a few things are (hopefully) sure things.  After giving him $63 million guaranteed, the team is pretty sure they will get Pro-Bowl level play from defensive end Fletcher Cox.  Coming off of a Pro-Bowl season, and paired with a new defensive coordinator, the Eagles are pretty sure they will...

Whatever the Eagles are paying Doug Pederson, it’s probaby not enough…

Philadelphia Eagles DT Fletcher Cox is the most important player on the team’s defense, and he’s now being paid like it. Cox and the Eagles recently agreed to a six-year deal worth $103 million, which includes a ridiculous $63 million (!) guaranteed. That’s pretty sweet money for a player that isn’t a quarterback.
