What is Brandon Brooks’ salary?
As per NFL reporter Mike Garafolo, the new contract reduced Brandon’s salary cap from $19.4 million to $7.1 million, meaning the 2022 arrangement reduced his pay by an eye-watering $12.3 million.
Mike writes in the tweet: “The only ’22 cash is a $1.12m non-guaranteed base salary.”
According to NJ.com, Brandon was initially set to make $13.4 million this NFL season, but had ‘no guaranteed money left on his previous deal.’
