DETAILS

On March 19, 2018, Vinny Curry signed a three-year, $23 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

And how excited was Bucs Nation when the news broke that he agreed to terms.

Could it have been the money? Could it be the Palm Trees and 90 Degrees? Could it have been a text from former teammate Beau Allen? Who knows.

Either or Vinny Curry wanted to become a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

Insight

Vinny Curry was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles 59th Overall in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The recent Super Bowl Winner was a huge key to the success the Eagles had on Defense last season.

I know Brentson Buckner has been smiling at One Buc visioning his DL with a McCoy, Allen, Curry, Gholston & Spence. Wow. Just imagine if we got Chubb too. wow.  Curry stated that Coach Buckner attracted him to come to the bay also.

On March 17th, 2018, It was first reported Curry agreed to a deal. In result, the Buccaneers had to release 2 year Buccaneer Robert Ayers. Curry was officially announced by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 19, 2018.

What To Expect

Vinny Curry brings a nasty edge to the Defensive Line. He can crash down field faster than the average lineman his size. He is know for his ability to collapse the pocket. Also he is bringing a winning mentality for our Defense.

Curry had 3sacks and 41 quarterback hurries in 2017 and had 4 tackles in Philadelphia’s 41-33 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.   Curry also has 22 sacks over his 6 year career. He joins a depleted Buccaneers defense that managed just 22 sacks last season, the lowest total in the NFL.
