The Eagles brought back Vinny Curry on a 1-year deal earlier this month, but now we have the full details of his new contract with the Eagles.
Curry has a full guaranteed base salary of $1.3 million and can earn another $250,000 in incentives, a league source told NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Those incentives are considered "likely to be earned," which means they count toward Curry's cap figure in 2020. It also means those incentives are for things he accomplished in 2019.
So, all together, his cap figure for 2020 is $1.55 million. Not bad for the Eagles' third defensive end at 32 years old.
Here are the 2020 cap hits for the Eagles' top defensive linemen:
Fletcher Cox: $22.85 million
Brandon Graham: $6.29 million
Malik Jackson: $4.67 million
Derek Barnett: $4.09 million
Javon Hargrave: $3.45 million
Vinny Curry: $1.55 million
Hassan Ridgeway: $1.01 million
Josh Sweat: $899,398
In 2019, Curry finished with 5.0 sacks, the second-highest total of eight-year career.
So where does this contract leave the Eagles in terms of cap space?
With the Curry contract and with Marquise Goodwin off the books for 2020 after opting out of the season, we now know the Eagles' updated cap space.
The Eagles have $23,171,612 in remaining cap space in 2020.
But before you get visions of the Eagles' signing one of the big-name free agents on the market, remember how important it will be for them to carry over cap space into the 2021 season. Because of expected revenue losses during this season, the salary cap floor has been set for $175 million in 2021.
Based on that projection, the Eagles are scheduled to be nearly $60 million over the cap for next season, but that includes carrying over the $23 million from this season. They need most of that to count for next year.
