Brooks came in last season as a cheap cornerback that had experience playing in Schwartz’s system, but he suffered a torn quad against the Minnesota Vikings in October that sidelined him for the rest of the season. He’s 28-years old, and releasing him could open up an opportunity for a young corner, assuming they take one in the draft, to start for the Eagles.
Leodis McKelvin was released recently, so Brooks’ history with Schwartz helps. It still doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s safe either. Pay close attention to this one.
