Eagles Pick Up $6.37M Of Cap Room By Reworking G Brandon Brooks’ Contract


According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Eagles recently restructured the contract of G Brandon Brooks and in turn created $6.37 million of cap space.

Yates says that the Eagles accomplished this by converting Brooks’ base salary into signing bonuses, which dropped his cap number to $4.768 million for the 2018 season.

This is actually the second time the Eagles have restructured Brooks’ contract in the past five months.

Brooks, 28, 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 that included $21 million guaranteed in 2016.

Brooks was set to make salaries of $8.5 million and $7.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Brooks appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 4 guard out of 77 qualifying players.
