Eagles Also In Negotiations With DT Fletcher Cox & DE Vinny Curry Regarding Extensions

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Eagles opened contract talks with DT Fletcher Cox and impending free agent DE Vinny Curry at this week’s Senior Bowl.

Recent reports have said that Curry and Cox could be in line for extensions, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.

No team in league has been as aggressive as the Eagles have been at locking up core players, which has resulted in new deals for TE Zach Ertz, TE Brent Celek and OL Lane Johnson.

Cox, 25, played out his four-year, $10.241 million rookie contract last year before the Eagles elected to pick up his fifth-year option. He’ll make a base salary of $7.799 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Cox appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and recorded 71 tackles, 9.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two recoveries and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 2 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 57 qualifying players.

Curry, 27, was taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft. He has played out his four-year, $3,381,832 rookie contract and is now in line to be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.

In 2015, Curry appeared in all 16 games and recorded 12 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Eagles.

We’ll have more regarding potential contracts extensions for these players as the news is available.
