The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released defensive end Vinny Curry on Tuesday. He signed with the Buccaneers last off-season. 

Curry was one of the defensive additions to attempt to help improve the Buccaneers defense going into the 2018 season. However, during the season, the Bucs defense struggled and eventually cost Mike Smith his Defensive Coordinator job.

He signs a three-year, $23 million deal with the Buccaneers last off-season. However, the Bucs placed an out in his contract that allowed the team to get out of his contract after one season. 

Curry was paid $6.5 million during the 2018 season. By releasing him, the Buccaneers are facing $0 dead cap space. 

He will now be looking to sign with his third NFL team. Curry began his career with the Philadelphia Eagles before signing with the Buccaneers. 

In his first season in Tampa Bay, he appeared in 12 games with seven starts. He had 21 tackles, five tackles for a loss, and seven quarterback hits. He also had 2.5 sacks. 

Before signing with the Bucs, he had played in all 16 games for four straight seasons. When he missed time this season, it was the first-time since the 2013 season he had missed games. 

In his career, he has made 96 appearances, including 23 starts. He has 152 tackles, including 38 tackles for a loss, and 70 quarterback hits. He has 24.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and two pass deflections.
