Brooks Drawing Interest from Multiple Teams

Monday, March 7

Jason Cole of Bleacher Report reported Brooks "could be getting in [the] range of [$8 million] per season on the market" as multiple franchises are looking into the guard.


Brooks Was Consistent During Texans Tenure

Brooks, 26, is a reliable, durable option after appearing in 44 of Houston's 48 games over the past three seasons.

Matt Claassen of Pro Football Focus called Brooks the 17th-best free agent of 2016 and even deemed him a top-10 guard during the 2013 and 2014 campaigns.

The Eagles are trying to build an offensive line that can protect quarterback Sam Bradford. Adding a high-upside guard like Brooks in the fold for what figure to be the prime years of his career is an ideal place to start.
