Rapoport has confirmed that Curry and the Jets have reached a one-year deal worth $1.3 million, with $700k in incentives.
As Rapoport notes, there’s a connection between Curry and Jets’ general manager Joe Douglas, who was the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel from 2017-19.
In 2020, Curry served in a backup role for the Eagles, only playing 28% of defensive snaps. He had three sacks, 16 combined tackles, and a fumble recovery.
Drafted in 2012, Curry spent six seasons in Philadelphia before signing a three-year, $27 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018.
Curry ended up only spending one season in TB and eventually found his way back to Philadelphia, where’s he’s been for the past two years.
For his career, Curry’s totaled 32.0 sacks, 194 combined tackles, and five forced fumbles in 123 games.
Last season, the Jets ranked 21st in the league in sacks with 31. Even though Curry is far from the productive starter he used to be, he could still provide the Jets some needed depth.
