RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Curry struggled with a knee issue during all of 2016, but still managed to play in all 16 games and post a career-high 26 tackles. Despite veteran Chris Long and 2017 first-round selection Derek Barnett joining the fold, Curry will still be a factor as part of a rotation and will look to boost his sack totals after not posting more than 3.5 over the last two seasons.
After notching nine sacks and four forced fumbles in 2014, Curry only reached the 3.5 sack mark in 2015 and didn't force any fumbles. However, not only has defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz spoken of playing Curry more, he also spoke of plans to put Curry in a more suitable position to succeed as the linebacker looked noticeably out of place on a frequent basis last season. After dishing out Curry over $47 million this offseason to stay in town, those comments have financial backing. If things go right, Curry could well surpass his career-high in sacks and be a value pick in IDP leagues.
Curry is an intriguing 2015 prospect. After an explosive 2014, in which he recorded 9.0 sacks and forced four fumbles while being on the field for just 32.1 percent of snaps, Curry will be looking for even more this season. With such a deep and talented linebacker corps, he’ll fight for his playing time, but he’ll also be able to take opponents by surprise like he did for much of last season.
A misfit in Philadelphia's 3-4, Curry might get cut before the fall if Philadelphia is unable to trade him.
Curry will serve as an undersized rotational end in Philadelphia's 3-4. With a small snap count, Curry is unlikely to make an IDP impact.
Curry is a second-round pick who was exceptionally productive at defensive end for Marshall, and he figures to start at end in the future for the Eagles. In 2012, though, he'll most likely serve as no more than a backup, minimizing any IDP value he might have.
