Eagles Pro Bowler announces his retirement

Brandon Brooks on the field

The Philadelphia Eagles have said they are confident in their offense heading into next season with Jalen Hurts, but they suddenly have another hole to fill on their offensive line.

Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks announced on Wednesday that he is retiring. The 32-year-old is in his sixth season with the Eagles, though he has missed almost all of the last two with injuries.

Brooks played in just two games this year due to a pectoral injury. He missed all of 2020 with a torn Achilles. The guard made three straight Pro Bowls from 2017-2019. Brooks cited the injuries as the main reason he is calling it a career.

Prior to his announcement, Brooks restructured his deal with the Eagles to free up salary cap space for the team.

The Eagles seem committed to Hurts going into 2022, despite his struggles in their playoff loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With Brooks retiring, it would not be a surprise to see them address the O-line in the draft.
