Bucs release DE Curry after just one season


TAMPA, Fla. — The Buccaneers have released defensive end Vinny Curry, the first major roster cut under new head coach Bruce Arians.

The Bucs signed Curry last offseason to a three-year deal worth $23 million with $6.5 million guaranteed to replace Robert Ayers. Curry dealt with a nagging ankle injury through much of the season. He started seven of 12 games, finishing with 21 combined tackles and 2.5 sacks.

He was due to make $8 million in 2019, none of which was guaranteed.

The Bucs are undergoing a scheme change under new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles into more of a 3-4 defense, making Curry more expendable. Heading into the offseason, the Bucs had about $15 million in salary cap space.
