AP source: Eagles agree to deal with OL Brandon Brooks

The Eagles have agreed on a five-year contract with offensive lineman Brandon Brooks.

Brooks fills a big hole for the Eagles on their offensive line.

Philadelphia announced the deal Wednesday, the first day of free agency.

Brooks started 44 games over the last three seasons for Houston. The 6-foot-5, 342-pound Brooks was a third-round pick in 2012.

The Eagles previously agreed to free-agent deals with quarterback Chase Daniel and safety Rodney McLeod on Wednesday. They also finalized a trade with Miami that sends cornerback Byron Maxwell, linebacker Kiko Alonso and the 13th overall pick in the draft for the eighth overall pick.
