According to Ian Rapoport, the deal is worth $54.2 million and includes $30 million guaranteed, making him the highest-paid guard in the NFL.
Jeff McLane clarifies that Brooks’ new deal is worth $56.2 million in new money for an annual salary of $14.05 million.
Brooks has rebounded from an Achilles injury during Philadelphia’s playoff loss to New Orleans last season to play like the best guard in football so far this season, so this is a well-deserved payday for him.
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.
In 2019, Brooks has started all nine games for the Eagles at right guard. Pro Football Focus has Brooks rated as the No. 1 guard out of 78 qualifying players so far this season.
