Great work, Vinny.

For the third time this season, a member of the Philadelphia Eagles has been named NFLPA Community MVP of the Week. In Week 2, it was defensive end Chris Long. In Week 3, it was franchise quarterback Carson Wentz. Now Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry is taking home the award.

Curry is being recognized for his Thanksgiving Rush program, which provided Thanksgiving meals to over 200 families in need. Awesome job.

As an NFLPA Community MVP award winner, Curry is also eligible for the annual Byron “Whizzer” White (BWW) Award, which is the highest honor that the NFLPA can bestow upon a player.​ Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins received the BWW Award in 2017.

It’s really cool that the Eagles have so many players making a positive impact off the field. Philadelphia’s football team is already very easy to root for considering their 9-1 record. Their off-field contributions make them even more likeable.
