Eagles release DE Curry, save $5M on cap

Curry, 29, would have counted $11 million against the salary cap. The defending champs have spent the past couple weeks looking to either get Curry to take a pay cut or find potential trade partners. Over the course of his contract, Curry only amassed 5.5 sacks which is not a good enough return on the investment for Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Eagles on Friday released defensive tackle Vinny Curry in a cost-cutting move, according to NFL.com's Mike Garafolo. After trading for Michael Bennett, the Eagles also signed Nigel Bradham, Haloti Ngata and Corey Nelson to free-agent deals. "We wish Vinny and his family all the best moving forward". Once it became clear that his deal could not be redone, Philadelphia made a decision to release the six-year veteran.

The Eagles drafted Curry in the second round in 2012 out of Marshall, and he eventually became an important part of the defensive line rotation as they won the Super Bowl last season.

Curry is fresh off arguably one of his best seasons previous year, as he was a key pass rusher for an Eagles defense that became Super Bowl LII Champions-even if his season sack total didn't truly indicate it. He had a career-high nine sacks in 2014 and followed that up with a combined 21 quarterback pressures and hits the following year.
