Brandon Brooks has been plagued by injuries in recent years. He tore his right Achilles tendon in the 2018 playoffs, but played the entire 2019 season after rehab and earned his third Pro Bowl appearance. But in the summer of 2020, Brandon Brooks tore his left Achilles tendon and missed the entire following season.

The 2021 season wasn’t much better either: Brandon Brooks suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Week 2, ending the season early.

“After these injuries, I finally understand that it’s time to listen to my body. My body is telling me that I have to make a decision, and I think it’s the right decision at this point in time,” Brandon Brooks said. .

Brandon Brooks was the Houston Texans’ third-round pick in 2012. After four years with the Houston Texans, he signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Philadelphia Eagles recently restructured their contract with Brandon Brooks, reducing his guaranteed salary for 2022, freeing up $12.38 million in cap space.

In a statement, Philadelphia Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffery Lurie thanked Brandon Brooks for helping the team build and maintain a winning culture. He was also praised for his “combination of grit, strength, athleticism, intelligence and skill.”
