The Philadelphia Eagles announced almost a week ago the re-signing of veteran edge rusher Vinny Curry. The two agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $2 million.

Curry is coming off his most productive season as a pass rusher in 2019, where he received a career-high pass-rushing grade of 79.8 by Pro Football Focus. There’s another statistic that reinforces the impact Curry made rushing the passer last season.
