Philadelphia Eagles second-year defensive end Vinny Curry hasn’t been on the field much this season, but his talent as clearly been showcased in the limited times he has been on the field. Curry has two sacks this season, and he has done an incredible job of getting to the quarterback when the Eagles do give him the opportunities to do his job. The 25-year-old was a second-round pick out of Marshall last season, and other teams have certainly taken notice of Curry’s talents.

It was reported earlier that the Eagles are not shopping Curry, but that doesn’t mean over teams haven’t contacted the Eagles regarding Curry. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Philadelphia Eagles haven’t “made” calls regarding Vinny Curry, but they have “taken” calls from other teams. Rapoport reports that the Eagles know Curry is talented, but they would be willing to trade Curry if they received a “big enough” offer for him.

The question is, just how big of an offer would they need to get? Since they took Curry in the second round of the draft, I would be surprised if the Eagles traded him for anything else. Since they aren’t going to get more than a second-round pick, it is impossible for me to envision Curry getting dealt anywhere. He’s a talented player, but he’s not going to fetch a huge price despite the interest. At this point, what the Eagles need to do is get him on the field, because he’s too talented to be sitting on the bench. I mean, just look at his production in limited snaps.
