The Eagles have signed defensive end Vinny Curry into a one-year deal, the team announced Thursday.

Curry was originally a second-round pick by the Eagles and played with his first six seasons in Philly, for example during the team’s 2017 Super Bowl run.

He signed up a three-year, $ 2-3 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers past offseason but had been released after one year old.

The 30-year-old Curry, who coped with a nagging shoulder injury for much of this year, had 2.5 sacks and three tackles for loss with the Bucs. He started seven of 12 matches and lost his starting job to Carl Nassib, who had been claimed off waivers from the Browns.

Curry has been the first major cut by brand new Bucs coach Bruce Arians as he became expendable with the team going into more of a 34 defense under new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.

He unites a defensive end spinning which features Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett along with Josh Sweat. Chris Long is under contract but have not publicly committed to playing with this season.

ESPN’s Jenna Laine contributed to the record.
