According to Yates, Brooks’ 2017 base salary of $1.85 million has been reduced down to $1 million and the 2018 year in his contract is now an option year.
Brook, unfortunately, suffered a ruptured his right quad tendon last year that led to him being placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Brooks, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bills back in 2012. After four years in Buffalo, Brooks signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Eagles as a free agent back in March of last year.
In 2016, Brooks had recorded 14 tackles, a fumble recovery and a pass defense for the Eagles over the course of six games. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 235 total snaps last year.
