Report: Bills Trade Peters To Eagles
Posted by Aaron Wilson on April 17, 2009, 1:32 p.m.
The Buffalo Bills have traded Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters to the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com.

In exchange for Peters, the Bills receive the Eaglesí 28th overall pick of the first round as well as a second-day draft pick in this yearís draft and a late-round draft pick in 2010.

Peters has been unhappy with his contract and hasnít been attending the Billsí offseason activities after staging a holdout last summer at training camp.

Presumably, Peters will be seeking a new deal from his new employers.

The Eagles needed an offensive tackle after starter Tra Thomas left in free agency. Jon Runyan is a free agent and has been battling injuries.

This move means that we have 3 Pro-Bowl O-linemen in the Andrews and Peters.   :evil

MGJ and Cole/Maneans make the line deep enough, IMO.

Now time for Boldin, a RB, and a TE....

The good news is the Eagles can say they were totally aggressive and improved the offense. The bad news is they're going to be content to let McNabb play another season without that one player that makes the offense go from statistically good to superbowl good. Boy, am I kicking myself now for not having season tickets.

Yeah, my first thought was, kiss any Boldin chances goodbye.  As if there was ever much of a chance anyway.

Glad to see this move, glad to have a solid situation at T and O line generally.

Even better news: it almost guarantees that #21 will be used on an offensive skill position, and we don't have to worry about some stiff like Eben Britton

Two Pro Bowl OTs that are 6 years younger than the guys they replaced.  Not bad...

And as mentioned before, Peters was a teammate of Shawn at Arkansas...

I love this move because now there is almost no chance that the Eagles will pick an offensive lineman in the first round.

Okay - so now it's down to 50/50, but still... love it!

Well, if they traded one 1st rounder away, why not deal the other for Boldin. People say the Eagles don't trade 1st rounders for WRs.... ever, right? Well, they also don't take RBs in the first round.... ever.

So unless it is Pettigrew at 21, the Eagles will do something very uncharacteristic of them at 21.

So wait, Shawn now has his brother and a college teammate playing with him on the line?

I officially refuse to believe that Reid isn't concerned with Andrews' mental state and is taking uncharacteristic steps to mitigate the problem...
