Details for Vinny Curry’s deal with Buccaneers emerge

We’ve got the break down on Vinny Curry’s contract.

Bucs’ Director of Football Administration Mike Greenberg has a thing for working contracts. They are almost like magic.

For some time now, Tampa Bay has been signing players to contracts that are very team friendly and easy on the cap. The latest signing of defensive end Vinny Curry is another example of what the team is able to do on a yearly basis with the signing of players.

Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times had the information on Twitter, reporting a three-year, $23 million with only $6.5 million guaranteed.

The Buccaneers could cut ties after the 2018 season and incentivized the deal with sacks and playoff appearances for the team.

What’s striking here is the comparison to recently released defensive end Robert Ayers. Tampa Bay basically swapped one for the other while getting a better deal.

NFLPA’s numbers (albeit not updated daily) have the Bucs at just over $50-million left for 2018 in cap space. But if you calculate it yourself and are daring enough to go with a guesstimate, the team has just under $25-million or so left to play with.
