Eagles restructured RG Brandon Brooks' contract.
Brooks converted his base salary into bonuses. He will get the same amount of money, but the move saves the Eagles $6.37 million against the cap. Brooks says he green-lit the restructure so Nick Foles could get some more money this year. The Eagles gave Foles a raise last week. Apr 23 - 9:00 AM

Eagles RG Brandon Brooks revealed he's dealing with his anxiety much better this year after being forced to miss two games last season.

Brooks was a late scratch in Weeks 12 and 14 after becoming so ill before the game that he couldn't play. Brooks is seeing a psychologist regularly and hasn't had an episode yet this offseason. Despite the issue, Brooks graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 guard last season.

Eagles RG Brandon Brooks revealed he's dealing with an anxiety issue, which has caused him to be inactive two of the past three games.

He was a surprise scratch Weeks 12 and 14, which would suggest he's getting so anxious on game days that it's making him sick or causing him to freak. "I'll get through this," Brooks said. He said it's more of an obsession with the game rather than nervousness or fear. Brooks is up in the air for Week 15.

Eagles RG Brandon Brooks (illness) is a surprise inactive for Week 14 against the Redskins.

It's the second time in three weeks Brooks has been a surprise scratch with illness. Isaac Seumalo filled in in Week 12, and should do so again. It downgrades the Eagles' already shaky running "attack."

Eagles RG Brandon Brooks (illness) has been released from the hospital.

Brooks was hospitalized with an unknown illness which forced him to sit out Monday night's game against the Packers. It is encouraging he was released this early in the week, but his status for Week 13 is completely up in the air.

Eagles RG Brandon Brooks (illness) is inactive for Week 12 against the Packers.

Brooks was hospitalized earlier Monday and will miss this one. Rookie Isaac Seumalo will start at right guard, with Stefen Wisniewski at left guard. Brooks is Pro Football Focus' No. 3 right guard, so it's an obvious downgrade. Also inactive for the Eagles are WR Nelson Agholor, RB Ryan Mathews, OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai, DT Taylor Hart, DE Steven Means, and OL Dillon Gordon.

Eagles agreed to terms with RG Brandon Brooks, formerly of the Texans, on a five-year, $40 million contract.

Brooks played right guard for the Texans last season, but he also has experience at left guard and right tackle. Look for him to play inside in Philadelphia, replacing Matt Tobin at right guard. Brooks was coveted by the Texans, but Houston had its attention elsewhere with Lamar Miller and Brock Osweiler. Brooks received strong marks for his pass protection from PFF last season. At nearly 340 pounds, 26-year-old Brooks also offers mauler potential in the run game.

The Texans are "actively trying to retain" free agent RG Brandon Brooks.

Re-signing Brooks is Houston’s top priority. He’s coming off a down year, but is expected to push for top-10 guard money ($6M-plus annually). 26-year-old Brooks will be in high demand if he reaches the market.

The Texans are "prioritizing" re-signing free agent RG Brandon Brooks.

"I met with Houston and they most definitely said he was a priority," said Brooks' agent, Joe Spanos. "In the next couple days we'll trade proposals." Added GM Rick Smith, "Brandon is a key cog in our offensive line and we would love to have him back." Brooks would still be smart to test the market, where a massive young offensive guard with rare movement skills could break the bank.

The Texans want to re-sign free agent RG Brandon Brooks.

Brooks struggled with run blocking last year, but finished as a top-eight guard in PFF’s 2014 ranks. He’ll be in high demand if he makes it to the open market. Brooks is expected to command $6 million annually.

Free agent RG Brandon Brooks is expected to be in "heavy demand" on the open market.

A massive man at 6-foot-5, 346, Brooks has manned right guard for the Texans for the last three years. Pro Football Focus graded Brooks as a top-eight NFL guard in 2014, before his run blocking fell off a bit last year. Either way, Brooks' market will be hot as a talented 26-year-old with rare movement skills for a player his size. He'll likely command at least $6 million per year.

Texans RG Brandon Brooks (illness) is expected to play Sunday night against the Patriots.

Brooks missed last week with "extreme nausea and sweating" which forced him into a Buffalo-area hospital. He was not released from the hospital until Monday, but he was back on the practice field Wednesday and is on track to play.

Texans RG Brandon Brooks (illness) was released from the hospital Monday.

Brooks suffered from "extreme nausea and sweating" Sunday morning and was taken to a Buffalo-area hospital. He was able to travel home Monday night, but it is still unclear if he will be available for Sunday night against the Patriots. Oday Aboushi started in Brooks' place against the Bills.

Texans RG Brandon Brooks (toe) is a game-time decision for Week 8, while RT Derek Newton (toe) is day to day.

The banged-up line is bad news for Alfred Blue, who will be making the first start of the post-Arian Foster era. The Titans are not an imposing matchup, but already a plodder, Blue might not have many running lanes.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans want to lock contract-year RG Brandon Brooks up with a long-term extension.

Set to make $1.542 million in the final year of his rookie deal, Brooks has been one of the top guards in the league the last two seasons. If he hits free agency after another solid year, Brooks could be looking at a contract in excess of $7 million annually, though the potential presence of Kelechi Osemele or Marshal Yanda in the market could hurt his value. With over $8 million in cap space, Houston would be smart to lock up Brooks soon.
