Former (and forever) Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry loved us all so much that he actually bought out a billboard near Lincoln Financial Field to thank fans for supporting him over the years.
Vinny lived the dream, man. He grew up an Eagles fan and then became a starter on the first ever Eagles team to win a Super Bowl and bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy back to Philly.
It was unfortunate that the Eagles had to release him due to salary cap issues last week but at least he quickly found a new home with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In addition to Curry’s billboard, here’s the goodbye message he posted last week.
Who would’ve thought a small town boy from Neptune, NJ who grew up an Eagles fan, would’ve been drafted to his favorite team and win his and the teams first Super Bowl Championship! All Gods Plan! Philadelphia, Thank You! Thank you fans for opening your arms and taking me in as one of your own! This has been a dream come true for me to have the ability to play for my dream team and bring the Lombardi trophy home to you all! Thank you to the entire Eagles organization, coaching staff and my teammates, MY BROTHERS! UNDERDOGS! Without you guys, none of this would’ve been possible! I love you all from the bottom of my heart! I am humbled by this opportunity and can’t be more proud to call myself an Eagle for life! This experience has been one hell of a ride! I can’t wait to see what the future now holds for me. Thank You Philly!
Thank YOU, Vinny.
