Shark Bites

Jets DE Vinny Curry will miss the 2021 season because of a rare blood disorder, USA Today's Andy Vasquez reports. Curry revealed this week that he had his spleen removed in July after doctors diagnosed the disorder. While recovering, he developed blood clots that required blood thinners and 3-6 months of avoiding contact. It's fair to wonder whether this effectively ends the 33-year-old's career. The Jets, meanwhile, have lost both of the players who entered camp as their likely edge starters. Carl Lawson, of course, previously landed on IR with a torn Achilles' tendon. We'd bet on the team making a move or 2 to address the position now.

The Buccaneers signed DE Vinny Curry to a 3-year, $27 million deal. It’s not yet clear how much of that is guaranteed, but it’s clearly starter money. Curry got starter money in his last Eagles contract, too, but never drew a full share of snaps amid Philly’s talented rotation. He’s capable of double-digit sacks but needs to prove he can stand up to full-time duty. Curry figures to take over at right end after Tampa released DE Robert Ayers

Eagles DE Vinny Curry is active for today’s opener against the Browns. He entered the weekend questionable with a knee issue but put in a full practice Friday. He carries IDP upside into a matchup with a Browns offense that we expect will have trouble protecting its QB this season. The Philly team D has plenty of upside in the matchup as well.

The Eagles on Tuesday announced a new 5-year deal with DE Vinny Curry that guarantees him $23 million, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The announced total is $47.25 million, which is obviously starter money for a guy who played a career-high 35% of Philly's defensive snaps last year in his 4th season. Look for him to play a lot more snaps as a 4-3 DE under new DC Jim Schwartz. Curry tallied a career-best 9 sacks in 2014 before falling back to 3.5 last season. He has flashed pass-rush upside throughout his young career, though, and will enter 2016 as an IDP sleeper for fantasy football drafts.
