The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed another former member of the Super Bowl Champions, Philadelphia Eagles. First, the Buccaneers signed Beau Allen.
Now, the Bucs have signed Vinny Curry, who refused to take a pay cut to remain with the Eagles. The Eagles needed him to take a pay cut so that they could add Michael Bennett, who they acquired in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks.
Curry signed a three-year, $27 million deal with the Buccaneers. The deal, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine, includes an $11.5 million injury guarantee.
Curry, 29, who was released by the Eagles on Friday, helped the franchise to their first Super Bowl Championship in team history in Feb. over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. He spent the first six-years of his career in Philadelphia.
This past season, he started all 16 games — the first-time in his career that he started games in the NFL. He had 25 tackles, 3.0 sacks, and one forced fumble.
In his career, he’s appeared in 84 games, including 16 starts. He’s had 95 tackles, 22.0 sacks, five forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and three pass deflections.
With the Buccaneers, he’ll compete with William Gholston and Ryan Russell to be their starting right defensive end. Gholston, prior to Curry’s free agent signing, was listed as the starter.
