Vinny Curry Almost Didn't Make It

Vinny Curry is one of the game's best pass-rush specialists. He played a pivotal role in the Philadelphia Eagles' championship run, leading their ferocious defense with 22 quarterback hits. Earlier this offseason, Curry signed a three-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
