Jets Place Vinny Curry On Reserve/NFI List

More bad news for the Jets’ pass rush. They placed defensive end Vinny Curry on their reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday. This will sideline Curry for the entire 2021 season.

The veteran edge rusher underwent an undisclosed offseason surgery and did not participate during the Jets’ training camp, residing on the team’s active/NFI list. Gang Green moving the ex-Eagle to the reserve/NFI list marks more unavailability for its thinning pass rush, with the move coming after the team lost Carl Lawson for the season due to an Achilles tear.

The Jets signed Curry in late March, giving him a one-year, $1.3MM deal that includes $1.1MM fully guaranteed. Curry has 32.5 career sacks in nine NFL seasons. The 33-year-old defensive end has spent all but one season with the Eagles but signed with the Jets to be a role player in Robert Saleh‘s new scheme. The Jets’ edge-rushing group is now even lighter on experience, and the team is looking into trades.

Beyond ex-49er Ronald Blair, who has not played since midway through the 2019 season due to injury, New York is down to the likes of John Franklin-Myers (two career starts; five career sacks) and struggling third-round pick Jabari Zuniga (zero, zero) on the edge. Kyle Phillips (seven, 1.5) is on the team’s active/PUP list. The team will almost certainly add an edge rusher or two in the coming days.

Just ahead of the deadline for teams to pare their rosters from 85 to 80 players, the Jets also waived four — wide receivers Josh Malone and Manasseh Bailey, tackle Tristen Hoge and linebacker Edmond Robinson.

Eagles Sign 12 UDFAs

The Eagles are one of the first teams to finalize their priority free agent class after the virtual draft. Here is Philadelphia’s UDFA group:

Olson may have a decent path to the active roster or practice squad spots. Although the Eagles drafted two linebackers, their group remains uncertain. Olson comes in with quite a pedigree at the Division I-FCS level, winning the Buck Buchanan award — given to D-I-FCS’ best defensive player — last season. The Eagles lost Nigel Bradham this offseason.

Good-Jones started 49 games at Iowa State, setting a school record. A second-team All-American as a redshirt junior, Arnold played mostly in the slot at Baylor. He declared for the draft early. Bailey began his college career as a linebacker, making the odd transition to wide receiver. Killins goes only 5-foot-7, 162 pounds but earned first- or second-team All-American Athletic Conference acclaim in each of his three Central Florida seasons.

The Eagles guaranteed $116K of Juriga’s league-minimum salary, per the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson (on Twitter). This includes a $16K signing bonus. Togiai received $100K guaranteed, while Warren will be guaranteed $57.5K guaranteed, per Wilson (Twitter links).
