Summary

Vinny Curry should be one of the main beneficiaries of the newly installed "Wide 9" defensive scheme in Philadelphia. Despite being drastically miscast as a 3-4 DE in Billy Davis' system, he still managed 16.5 sacks over three years in a part-time role. The Eagles believe he is a great fit in new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz' defense and consequently re-signed him to a sizable, long-term contract. Now in a full time role, Curry could near double digit sack totals in 2016. (May 28)

Eagles | Connor Barwin could start (Thu Jul 21, 05:46 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles LB Connor Barwin is slated to start at defensive end opposite DE Vinny Curry, according to Phil Sheridan of ESPN.com. DE Brandon Graham could also start instead of Barwin, though. The defensive linemen are expected to rotate frequently no matter who starts.

Our View: Barwin has been solid in his career but the change should suit him in this defense. "I'm excited because in a 3-4, it's a lot of movement," he told Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media. "I'm going to line up, pass rush and be able to work a guy over for an entire game. I'm excited for that." We're excited too, though the rotation will hold him back from putting up solid IDP numbers. He may be no more than a DE4 but we like the upside.
