Even though Brandon Graham spent the previous two seasons playing outside linebacker in Billy Davis’s 3-4 scheme, he was able re-adjust back to his natural defensive end position in 2016.

The 6-foot-2 defensive end finished the season with 59 tackles, 5.5 sacks, forced two fumbles, recovering one.

Graham was especially dominant in the first half of the season, racking up one sack in each of Philadelphia’s first three games and four in the Eagles first six games.

As a result of his play, Graham was ranked by Pro Football Focus among the top edge defenders in 2016, finishing second in the analytics website’s final numbers.

Graham, 28, has finished with 5.5 sacks or more four different times in his career, which began in 2010.

He’s signed a four-year, $26 million contract with $14 million guaranteed back in March of 2015.
