Philadelphia Eagles won’t give other teams a chance to get their hands on defensive end Brandon Graham. The team announced on Friday that they had signed Graham, who was about to hit the free agency, to a three-year extension. According to NFL Network, the deal is worth around $40 million and is set to keep the 30-year-old in Philadelphia through 2021 season.

“Brandon is not only a special player, but a special person. Here’s a guy who’s never had a bad day,” – said Eagles VP of player personnel Howie Roseman. “He fits us. On and off the field, he’s the kind of player and person you want to invest in. All of us were just talking to him this morning about how excited he was to be back in Philadelphia.”

Graham also confirmed the news by posting an adorable video and writing: “I just want to thank my family, friends and all the fans for the love and support. I am so happy to be back with the Eagles. Can’t wait to get back to work. Thank you lord for it all.”

Philadelphia Eagles were very keen on extending Brandon Graham as he is viewed as the leader of their front seven. He is also known for his durability, missing only one game since 2012 season. During his time with the Eagles, Graham played 127 games and made 317 tackles and 42.5. He also had 17 forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, and one touchdown.
