Brandon Graham, Eagles agree to three-year extension
The Philadelphia Eagles are bringing back one of the most important pieces of their defense in 2019, as they have agreed to a contract extension with defensive end Brandon Graham in advance of free agency.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the deal is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $12-14 million per season.
My understanding is this deal comes in at between $12M and $14M per year. Strong for Graham, who now gets to stay home. https://t.co/lulc5mmFiJ

Graham, the No. 13 overall pick in the 2010 draft, has spent his entire nine-year career in Philly. The 30-year-old has missed just one game over the past seven seasons and is one of the leaders of the Eagles’ defense. If you remember, it was Graham who had the strip sack of Tom Brady that sealed a win for Philadelphia in the Super Bowl two years ago.
Now that they have locked Graham up for three more years without letting him hit free agency, the Eagles can focus on other needs this offseason.
