The Eagles on Monday locked up All-Pro guard Brandon Brooks with a contract extension that runs through 2024.

Brooks, who has made a remarkable recovery from Achilles surgery, becomes the second-highest-paid guard in the NFL, according to Spotrac.

The new deal runs from 2021 through 2024.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the deal is worth $54.2 million with $30 million guaranteed in new money. 

That $13.55 million average is second-highest in the league among guards, behind only Zach Martin of the Cowboys ($14 million per year). Andrew Norwell of the Jaguars averages $13.3 million.

Brooks was signed through 2020 with base salaries of $8 million this year and $7.5 million next year on his original five-year, $40 million deal with the Eagles.

Brooks initially joined the Eagles in 2016 as a free agent from the Texans. He made his first two Pro Bowls in 2017 and 2018 in his sixth and seventh seasons and is playing at the same level again this year despite blowing out his Achilles during the playoff loss to the Saints in January.

The Eagles now have 26 players under contract through 2021 - 14 through 2022 and five through 2023. Brooks is the only player on the roster signed through 2024.
