Philadelphia Eagles right guard Brandon Brooks signed a four year, $56.2 million dollar extension with $30 million guaranteed. At $14.05 million a year, Brooks is now the highest paid guard in the NFL, surpassing Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin ($14 million a year). Brooks is represented by Joe Panos of Athletes First.

Brooks tore his achilles back in January and has made a full recovery starting every game for the Eagles this season. Pro Football Focus ranks Brooks as the No. 1 guard this season with a 93.4 grade. He’s only allowed one sack in his last 59 games played.

Brooks made the Pro Bowl in 2017 and 2018 and is on track to make his third. The Eagles offensive line is having a productive season, paving way for 127.3 rushing yards per game, best for 11th in the NFL.
