For Vinny Curry this was more than a typical “Mother’s Day” weekend. It was the first of many firsts to come. It was his second day of his first time at Mini Camp with the Philadelphia Eagles.Â This 2nd round Draft NFL pick also experienced his first mother’s day without his HERO “his mom ” (whom unfortunately he lost last year to cancer). It was his first mother’s day with a new beginning, New Team, Coach andÂ New teammate Fourth-round pick Brandon Boykin, from Fayetteville, GA.Â (cornerback and return specialist, who already has his sights set on punt- and kick-return duties). Boykin, who left Georgia as the schoolâ€™s all-time leader in kick return yards, is banking on these spring camps to bridge the gap.

Hey we are both from Jersey! I thought that would give me a heads up”. Well Wendy WIlliams! What are you waiting for? Where’s the Jersey love? SMH!
