Eagles' Vinny Curry energized by new diet

Vinny Curry recently changed his diet.

He’s hoping it changes his game.

Curry, a second-round draft pick in 2012, had four sacks last season for the Philadelphia Eagles. With the new diet and some pounds shed, Curry is looking for increased production in 2014.

According to CSNPhilly.com, Curry is staying away from dairy, red meat and gluten.

“I’m just trying to experiment in little ways,” Curry said. “Just trying to find an edge.”

Curry said he dropped two sizes around his midsection. And he’s thrilled with the results.

“Put it this way: Me and [defensive tackle] Fletcher Cox used to wear the same size jeans,” Curry said. “It keeps me motivated. Keeps me excited. I’m just trying to be doing what somebody else ain’t doing.”

The Eagles were ranked 29th in the league in defense last season, and Curry is determined to prove he can help change that with his new frame.

“When opportunity comes I’m going to be there to take advantage of it,” Curry said. “I’ll try to help my team in the best way I can. I come to challenge everybody.”
