Months away from the start of the 2020 season and the Eagles have already been dealt a devastating blow. 

Eagles right guard Brandon Brooks on Monday tore his left Achilles tendon while working out at the NovaCare Complex, according to sources. He will miss the entire 2020 season. 

I'm told Brooks knew the severity of the injury right away and was devastated. He injured himself running on a practice field.

@MookieMonstah

It’s Larry Warford time baby!

It’s telling nobody has signed him yet. :ph34r::D

Do the Eagles have the cap space to sign him?

He’s 100% guaranteed out for the entire season already? I know it’s not the norm obviously, but in 2012 Suggs tore his achilles playing basketball in the offseason and came back to play later that year. I wonder if there’s any possibility he comes back in the event of a deep Eagles playoff run.

They have ~$25mm this year but negative ~$51mm next year.

I think they're still hoping to sign Peters back too, so I'm really not sure if they can afford Warford.  Unless they just go all in for this year.

Came back to win a Super Bowl, no less. I really wanted JJ Watt to do the same thing with the Texans last year, but apparently that level of Karma only applies with Achilles injuries.

From a team-building perspective, once your QB is making money, you can't afford NOT to go all-in every year. It's not like you have a ton of extra change floating around and rolling over. And a QB worth his cash isn't going to be okay with the team purposely leaving holes unfilled so that they can be slightly less terrible next year. Do the Saints model. All-in every year. Once the wheels fall off, cap will create itself.

The cap is a myth anyway.The Eagles have always been “screwed next year” when it comes to the cap for like 5 years straight.

Exactly. Howie has been a cap genius. You just restructure and restructure again. Yes, you won't be able to do what Arizona, Cleveland, or the Rams have done at times in the past several seasons, but those teams have had mixed results so far.

This is trash.

Brooks was arguably the best guard in the league last year after taking only 9 months to recover from a torn Achilles. Should've won comeback player of the year.

The man can structure a contract like a friggin wizard. I’ll give him that. He may do dumb things like draft a QB in the second round and take Derek Barnett instead of Tre White but he can work the cap
