Brandon Brooks had an interesting start to his Eagles career back when the team signed him to a five year, $40 Million deal in 2016 -- he had to miss two games that season due to his anxiety issues. Ever since that time he missed though he has consistently been one of the top three right guards in the NFL.
Brooks hit a snag when he tore his achilles in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game against the New Orleans Saints. The injury put the start of his 2019 season up in the air, but after a grueling offseason he has able to rehab quickly from it and was on the field for the season-opener, which in and of itself is impressive. Not only has he been on the field, but he has been the best guard in all of football this season.
After seeing him play at an All-Pro level after all of that adversity, Howie Roseman has decided to reward him by signing him to a four-year contract extension this afternoon.
His extension now makes him the highest-paid guard in the NFL, which is deservingly so.
Brooks isn't the type of guy who will rest on his laurels, so this contract most likely won't affect his play moving forward. Carson Wentz will be resting easy tonight knowing that he shouldn't expect any sacks from the middle-right side of the offensive line for years to come.
