Vinny Curry would like to receive as much playing time with the Eagles as possible this season. So the natural defensive end is not complaining about getting reps at linebacker during minicamp.
Curry maximized his opportunity last year despite participating in only 32 percent of the defensive snaps, finishing second on the team with nine sacks and tied for first with four forced fumbles.
"I think he's expanded his role in terms of where we can deploy him," Chip Kelly told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Despite his 280-pound frame, Curry boasts superior speed and quickness. But he's not expected to be used covering receivers or running backs coming out of the backfield.
He just wants to be prepared for anything the coaches provide for him to do.
"Hopefully, I will be ready for everything that comes my way," Curry said.
