The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly gave Brandon Brooks a four-year, $56.2 million extension Monday that makes him the highest-paid guard in the NFL.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported the deal, which includes $30 million in guaranteed money for the 30-year-old right guard.

Brooks, a Pro Bowl selection in each of the past two seasons, is in the fourth season of a five-year, $40 million free-agent contract he signed in March 2016.

Brooks has not missed a game since December 2016, starting 55 of the Eagles’ 57 games since joining the team from the Houston Texans.

He appeared in 50 games (44 starts) for the Texans, who picked him in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Miami (Ohio).
