Curry made four tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Curry failed to register a tackle in two straight weeks, and he had just two stops through the first four games. He looked solid in limited action -- 18 defensive snaps -- with his first sack since Week 13 last year. Curry is just a reserve defensive end, so his IDP value is negligible.
Curry is signing a one-year contract with the Eagles, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Curry visited with a number of teams since being cut loose from Tampa Bay last month, but he's now officially heading back to the team he won a Super Bowl with just two seasons ago. It's not clear how large a role he'll have in his age-31 season, but Curry nonetheless figures to maintain a key role in the defensive end rotation. His importance would become even more pronounced if Chris Long decides to hang up the cleats.
Curry is nearing a deal to return to the Eagles, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bringing back former fan favorite DeSean Jackson apparently wasn't enough for the Eagles this offseason. With Curry back in the fold, Philadelphia will reunite the same defensive end rotation it had in 2017 when it won the Super Bowl, only this time Curry will have not one, but two, space-eating defensive tackles on the interior in Fletcher Cox and Malik Jackson. In his one-season stint with Tampa Bay in 2018, the then-30-year-old Curry produced 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 12 games.
The Buccaneers are releasing Curry on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Signed to a three-year, $27 million contract last offseason, Curry managed just 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks across 12 games (seven starts) in his lone season with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old defensive end may draw interest as a potential starter on the free-agent market, but he'll presumably have to settle for a smaller contract this time around. The Bucs likely will transition to a 3-4 scheme -- or at least a hybrid version -- under new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.
Curry, who was credited with two solo tackles, including one for loss, in a Week 17 loss to the Falcons, finished the 2018 season with 21 tackles (15 solo), including three for loss, and 2.5 sacks across 12 games.
A somewhat heralded free-agent addition this past offseason, Curry wasn't a starter by season's end, ceding the defensive end spot opposite Jason Pierre-Paul to Carl Nassib (shoulder). Curry did run with the first team in the season finale due to Nassib's inactive status, but the latter was considerably more productive on the season with six sacks. Looking ahead to 2019, Curry is on the books for a cap hit of $8 million, but per Spotrac, Tampa can cut ties with the veteran without penalty. Therefore, it remains to be seen if the 30-year-old will be in a Bucs uniform next season, especially with a new coaching staff on its way into town.
Curry will start at defensive end in Sunday's game against the Falcons, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Curry is drawing the start in place of Carl Nassib (shoulder). Curry hasn't seen more than 27 snaps since Week 9 while operating as a backup, picking up just one sack in that time. He'll look to put together a solid game with an increased snap count as a starter.
Curry recorded one sack across 25 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
Curry racked up his second sack of the season and his first since Week 1. The veteran has missed four games due to an ankle injury and has seen a decline in defensive snaps since his return.
Curry (ankle) totaled four tackles (three solo) and recorded one quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 27-9 win over the 49ers on Sunday.
The veteran defensive end racked up a season high in tackles in his return from missing the Week 11 tilt against the Giants. Curry has been notably hampered by ankle issues during much of the latter portion of the season, which has helped lead to his lowest tackle total (15) since his rookie 2012 campaign. If the 30-year-old can remain healthy the rest of the way, he'll have a chance to help shore up a Bucs pass rush that has significantly improved since Mark Duffner took over defensive coordinator duties from the departed Mike Smith.
Curry (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt against the 49ers, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Curry will get back into action after practicing in full all week. The veteran defensive end has battled an ankle injury through a good chunk of the season, missing four of the last five games in the process. However, he should be playing without a pitch count Sunday and will look to improve on the one sack he's garnered thus far in 2018.
Curry (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Curry was a full participant in practice all week and appears on track to suit up against the 49ers on Sunday. The veteran defensive end has missed five of the Buccaneers' last six games due to an ankle injury, but he appears to be nearing a return to full health. If Curry is able to play Week 12, he'll slot into his usual starting role.
Curry (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Curry has missed five of the last six games with the ankle issue, but he is on track to return Sunday against the 49ers after facing no limitations Wednesday. The 30-year-old's first year in Tampa Bay has yielded little production thus far, as he has only 11 total tackles and 1.5 sacks in six games.
Curry (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Curry was able to practice in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, but has not yet progressed well enough in his recovery from a lingering ankle injury to retake the field. With backup Carl Nassib (elbow) listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, Noah Spence could be in line for a significant uptick in defensive snaps.
Curry (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Curry returned to practice for the first time since Week 9, so his limited participation is notably a step in the right direction. The veteran defensive end's availability for Sunday's tilt against the Giants is still up in the air, so the extent of his participation in Friday's final practice of the week will be worth monitoring.
Curry (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Curry returned from the ankle issue last Sunday against the Panthers, but he apparently aggravated the injury and did not practice this week. Carl Nassib should step into a starter's workload at defensive end for the Buccaneers.
Curry (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
The veteran defensive end was able to take the field against the Panthers last Sunday after missing the prior two games, but he appeared to aggravate the ankle injury that had caused him to miss those contests. Thursday's practice report should shed further clarity on Curry's chances of facing the Redskins in Week 10, but the fact he was seen with a walking boot following the game Sunday coupled with his lack of participation Wednesday strikes an ominous tone for the moment.
Curry is wearing a walking boot following Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Panthers but appears to have avoided a serious injury, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Curry said that he did not aggravate the ankle injury that caused him to miss two games and is, "just a little sore." The veteran defensive end logged only one tackle during Sunday's loss to the Panthers and will look to bounce back against the Redskins in Week 10 if healthy.
Curry (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 9 tilt against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Curry has missed the last two games, and his active status is particularly welcome against a Panthers team that can threaten teams on the ground with both quarterback Cam Newton and running back Christian McCaffrey. Curry's return coincides with that of linemate Gerald McCoy (calf), giving the Bucs their deepest defensive line rotation of the season.
Curry (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Curry began the week as a limited participant but was able to practice fully Friday. Although the 30-year-old was wearing a protective walking boot last week, it appears as though he should return to his starting spot at defensive end for the Buccaneers this week.
Curry (ankle) was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
Curry spent last week in a walking boot, which naturally led to inactive status in Week 8 against the Bengals. His return to practice Wednesday is certainly a step in the right direction with respect to his chances of suiting up against the Panthers for a key Week 9 divisional clash. Curry's prognosis should become increasingly clearer as the rest of the practice week unfolds.
Curry (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Curry will miss his second consecutive game due to an ankle injury. The veteran defensive end was spotted in an ankle boot in practice this week, and a timetable for his return remains undisclosed. Carl Nassib is expected to slot into the starting lineup once again in Curry's absence.
