This sleeping giant will emerge for the Eagles in 2015

The Philadelphia Eagles have made a lot of changes to their roster since Chip Kelly got involved. On both sides of the ball, Kelly has molded his roster to fit a blueprint that he has created. Long cornerbacks, stout defensive tackles, running backs who don't dance in the backfield--at almost every position, Kelly has a preference. Last week we talked about anticipating the inevitable...

Wealth of Linebackers is a Great Problem for the Eagles

With the regular season just over two months away, the Eagles' front seven is primed to be one of the strongest units in the NFL. While the defensive line, with the likes of Fletcher Cox, Vinny Curry, Bennie Logan, and Beau Allen should wreak havoc upon opposing offensive lines, it's the crowded linebacking crew that really stands out.  The outside linebacking jobs are set, with...

Eagles DE Vinny Curry getting linebacker reps

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry will do just about anything to get more playing time than his 32 percent of defensive snaps last season. He made the most of it though, with an impressive nine sacks, so just imagine what he can do with more time on the field. Head coach Chip Kelly and staff would like to see that happen; however in a more expanded role for the...

New role for Philadelphia Eagles’ Vinny Curry

Generally speaking, if a defensive player is able to disrupt and/or sack the opposing quarterback, he is rewarded with more playing time; but for Philadelphia Eagles’ Vinny Curry, who recorded nine sacks in 2014 despite playing only 32% of Philly’s defensive snaps, finding a starting role in Bill Davis’ defense has been his greatest challenge.   Curry was selected in the second...

Eagles raving over DE Vinny Curry

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly said that he wanted to expand defensive end Vinny Curry's role this offseason, trying him at both inside and outside linebacker. Curry, (6'3, 279) a holdover from the Andy Reid era, played 397 snaps in 2014, while a little undersized for the position, he's a classic tweener for a hybrid position on the end and at outside linebacker while being...

Four veterans who will help carry the Carolina Panthers this year

Each offseason, an NFL GM’s job description is to identify weaknesses and address them through free agency, the draft or promoting talent already on the roster.

How Vinny Curry’s role with the Philadelphia Eagles is expanding

Vinny Curry was second on the Philadelphia Eagles defense with nine sacks in 2014. With more than twice as many sacks he had in his previous two years combined, it was a breakout year for the Neptune, New Jersey native. Curry has been the subject of trade speculation almost as soon as he joined the team. At no point was that speculation more evident than during the 2015 NFL Draft...

It is still a transitional time for the Philadelphia Eagles in their second season under head coach Chip Kelly.
