Eagles' Brandon Graham: Sticking in Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles re-signed Graham to a one-year, $20 million extension Monday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Graham's cap hit will be spread over the next two years, making it feasible for Philadelphia to retain the soon-to-be 33-year-old despite cap issues. He trailed off down the stretch in 2020 but began the year strong, so next season the Eagles could end up deploying Graham in more of a rotational fashion in order to keep him fresh. Graham has notched eight or more sacks in three of the last four seasons.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Still dangerous in 11th season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham notched 46 tackles (35 solo), eight sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery through 16 games in 2020.

Graham slowly tailed off during the latter half of the 2020 season (only one sack during the last eight games), but he was easily Philadelphia's top defensive player to begin the year. The Eagles are facing a difficult salary cap situation, so the team could need to approach Graham about a restructured contract before the new league year begins in March. However, the soon-to-be 33-year-old should be a strong candidate to remain in Philadelphia, where he's spent his entire career. In addition to his on-field abilities, the veteran's leadership should be invaluable for new coach Nick Sirianni.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Sacks Lamar Jackson twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham posted six tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Ravens.

It's never easy to take down a shifty quarterback like Lamar Jackson, but Graham did it twice Sunday to help keep the Eagles in the game. This was Graham's second two-sack performance of the season, as he's now up to five sacks through the first six games. His tackle numbers are likely too flaky for him to be a consistent IDP contributor, but Graham's ceiling is appealing.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Two sacks in tie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham recorded four tackles, all solo, and two sacks across 58 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Bengals.

Graham now has sacks in back-to-back contests to go with seven tackles on the year. He played in 81 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday, which led the Eagles defensive line. He'll now shift his focus to a Sunday night showdown with the 49ers.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Ready to go for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, per the Eagles' official Twitter account.

The 32-year-old defensive end fielded 38 defensive snaps in the Eagles' season opener against Washington, but he sustained a concussion during the course of the contest and was subsequently forced to sit out Wednesday's practice. Graham put in a limited session Thursday before clearing concussion protocol Friday, and he is not listed on the team's injury report for Week 2.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Questionable for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's matchup versus the Rams.

After sustaining a concussion in the season opener, Graham has cleared the league's concussion protocol. Still, the Eagles have yet to give the DE the green light, but that essentially means he'll just be monitored over the weekend, and there shouldn't be much concern about his availability. If Graham indeed plays, he'll look to notch his first sack of the season against Jared Goff, who was taken down just once by the Cowboys in Week 1.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham has cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol and is expected to suit up against the Rams on Sunday, John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Graham has managed a quick turnaround since suffering a hit to the head Week 1, and he looks in line to assume his usual spot in the starting lineup versus Los Angeles. The veteran defensive end notched the second-highest sack total of his career last season (8.5), and he could find success as a pass rusher against the Rams' unreliable offensive line.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

This is extremely positive news for the veteran, as he was elevated after missing practice Wednesday. Per John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia, Graham is expected to clear concussion protocol in the coming days before playing in Sunday's matchup against the Rams. Josh Sweat would likely be the primary beneficiary of an uptick in snaps should Graham incur a setback.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Not practicing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (concussion) will not participate in Wednesday's practice, Jimmy Kempski of reports.

Graham remains in the five-step concussion protocol due to a hit suffered Week 1. He'll need to gain full medical clearance before retaking the field, which leaves his status for Sunday's upcoming tilt against the Rams uncertain. With Vinny Curry (hamstring) on IR, Josh Sweat would likely be the primary beneficiary of increased playing time if Graham can't go Week 2.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Graham is in concussion protocol, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Graham exited Sunday's loss to Washington with a head injury, and now it's confirmed that he's battling a concussion. His status for Week 2's matchup versus the Rams is uncertain at this time, and Wednesday's initial practice report should provide a better idea of his status.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Evaluated for head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham exited Sunday's Week 1 contest against Washington to be evaluated for a head injury.

Graham was one of a number of Eagles' defensive linemen to leave the game. Prior to his exit, he managed two tackles, including a tackle for loss. With little time remaining in the contest, Graham likely will look toward a return in Week 2 against the Rams.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Logs three-year high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham recorded 50 tackles (35 solo) and 8.5 sacks in 2019.

Graham played 16 games for the seventh time in the last eight years but hadn't made 50 tackles in a season since 2016. The 8.5 sacks came just one shy of the career-high he set two years ago. Heading into his age-32 season, the Michigan product has two years left on his deal with the Eagles and will be back leading the rotation at defensive end in 2020.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Returns after halftime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (knee) returned to Sunday's wild-card game versus the Seahawks, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Graham exited in the second quarter but is ready to play through this knee issue to help keep the Eagles' season alive. The 31-year-old will be a major boost to the team's pass rush.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Sustains knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham exited Sunday's wild-card playoff game versus the Seahawks with a knee injury.

Graham didn't make a tackle before exiting the game. His absence off the edge is a major loss for the Eagles, as Graham racked up 50 tackles and 8.5 sacks during the regular season. Josh Sweat and Vinny Curry should both see upticks in usage in Graham's stead.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Notches 1.5 sacks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham made two tackles (one solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Seahawks.

Graham has been on fire since Week 5, recording all of his 7.5 sacks on the year in that seven-game span. He needs just three more tackles to surpass last year's total of 39.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Drops QB in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham registered four tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 22-14 win over the Bears.

Graham and the Eagles' defensive front made it extremely difficult on Mitchell Trubisky, who completed less than 50 percent of his passes for just 125 yards and no scores. Graham now has six sacks through eight games, and his career-high of 9.5 is within reach.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Notches another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham recorded six tackles (five solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Bills.

This ties Graham's season high for stops in a game, and it's the first turnover he has forced. Graham has now exceeded last year's sack production with five this year, and he's on pace to beat his previous career high of 9.5.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Grabs sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham finished Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Vikings with four tackles, including a sack.

Sunday's sack of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was Graham's fourth of the season after he collected three in a win over the Jets in Week 5. The 31-year-old has already equaled his sack production from a season ago and needs just six more to set a new career high.

October 7, 2019 01:04 PM
Eagles' Brandon Graham: Piles up three sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham registered three sacks in Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.

Graham didn't mark a sack in each of the first four games, but he throttled up against the lowly Jets. His career high is 9.5 sacks posted in the 2017 season, and that's now a realistic goal again.

Eagles' Brandon Graham: Staying with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham is signing a three-year contract to stay with the Eagles, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

The 2010 first-round pick has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, playing out his rookie contract followed by a four-year, $26 million deal. While never quite dominant as a pass rusher, Graham offers a nice mixture of durability, consistency and versatility, with five straight seasons recording at least 39 tackles, four sacks and 15 appearances. He'll celebrate his 31st birthday in April and should be locked in as a starter at defensive end for the Eagles.
