Brandon Brooks agrees to deal with Philadelphia

Guard Brandon Brooks has agreed to a five-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced Wednesday.

The deal is worth $40 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Caplan.

The Houston Texans selected Brooks in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft out of Miami (Ohio), and he became the Texans' starting right guard by the 2013 season.

Brooks played in 50 games for the Texans, starting 44 of them on his rookie deal.

Health was rarely a problem for Brooks, who missed four games during his three seasons as a starter. Two of those missed games were the result of an illness that flared up the morning of the game. In 2015, Brooks missed the Texans' loss to the Buffalo Bills, instead spending the game and the night in a Buffalo hospital.
