A great success story for the Bills, Peters was an undrafted tight end out of Arkansas. The Bills turned him into an offensive lineman and he ended up starting 10 games by his second season. Buffalo eventually turned him into one of the best left tackles in the game.

Even though this is a good move, it makes even more sense to me now

Love the trade, gives them a lot more freedom in the draft. 

I wouldn't mind seeing something like this now:
21. Heyward-Bey
53. Rashad Jennings
85. TE

I like it. Not as flashy as a stud WR, but it fills a big time need.

Peters - Manneans - Jackson - Andrews - Andrews.... Pretty damn good.

The only thing that throws up a flag for me is that Peters is considered an elite run blocker and decent pass blocker... he'll be on Donovan's blind side and we all know Andy's not changing his style of offense.

If they got an all-pro LT for nothing more than a late first rounder and a fourth this year (plus whatever next - who cares) then I'd say it's a steal, especially if they're going to use him correctly.

I was actually just thinking some similar things Feva. Stacey Andrews is also pretty solid as a run blocker.

It's a pipe dream, but imagine if they swapped MJG for Herremans and put Cole in at center and drafted a guy like Unger or Eric Wood to play center, then decided they were going to pound the ball with Moreno and BWest. That'd be a lot of beef to run behind. Sadly, it'll still be pass pass pass, but McNabb might not touch the ground more than 15 times all season.

The Peters addition will be most apparent when running left this season. Thomas was always great as a pass protector, but left a lot to be desired in the run game, especially the past couple of years. Peters is a mauler, put MJG next to him and smash people in the mouth running left.

I like it and dont like it. It sures up the OLINE but no more Boldin, Ocho, or Edwards. No chance now.

Oh well so whos the best back ppl predict to be available at #21? I think they take a TE over a RB.

My personal prediction is that they will trade out of the first.

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...

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...

AR just signed Andrews' pops to play center.

Newbie here.  :yay

This is a terrific deal for the Eagles - LT was a serious area of concern and there's NO WAY they were getting anyone nearly as good as Peters at 1.28. Second-day picks are a crapshoot and we don't have enough roster spots for 12 rookies anyway. Assuming they work out a deal with Peters this is a flat out great trade and I must give props to the FO after trashing them pretty routinely these past few years.

This move pretty much guarantees the first round pick is either a TE, RB or help on defense. I'd love to see the Eagles draft Pettigew at 1.21, then trade up toward the top of the 2nd to draft Donald Brown or McCoy. I'd even be happy if they added to the OL by nabbing Mack or Unger to challenge Jamaal Jackson at center.

Since they always manage to piss me off somehow I imagine we're going to either deal out of the first or draft somebody like Ayers or a DB.

You can always detract


If they get Pettigrew they could turn into a terrific run blocking line. RBs would be ripping off 10+ yard rushes 4 or 5 times a game. Or however many times they run the ball.

I am really glad that they took a couple of picks they would have farged up off the table, are going to shell out the money, and got a great young player for the offense.

But, if they could have made the same deal for Boldin, maybe they should have.  Or maybe not.  I don't farging know.


I'm going to rate this move a solid B.

Between the two I'd rather have Peters than Boldin, though Peters may have more downside.

They could still do a deal for Boldin. They won't even think about it, but they could.

You're only saying that because you want King Cole to be right.
