It’s a big blow to the Eagles ahead of their first-round playoff game against the Seahawks this weekend, as Brooks is one of the best guards in the NFL.
Brooks, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Texans back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Texans before signing a five-year, $40 million contract with the Eagles that included $21 million guaranteed in 2016.
Brooks was set to make base salaries of $7.5 million over the final two years of the agreement when he signed a four-year extension with the Eagles earlier this season worth $56.2 million in new money and $30 million guaranteed.
In 2019, Brooks has started all 16 games for the Eagles at right guard. Pro Football Focus has Brooks rated as the No. 1 guard out of 81 qualifying players so far this season.
