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 Eagles’ 28th overall pick of the first round as well as a second-day draft pick in this year’s draft and a late-round draft pick in 2010.

Peters has been unhappy with his contract and hasn’t been attending the Bills’ 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.

 :yay

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...

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
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: NGM on April 17, 2009, 02:41:04 PM
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

Post by: Feva on April 17, 2009, 02:41:45 PM
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.
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: Rome on April 17, 2009, 02:47:37 PM
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.
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: PhillyPhanInDC on April 17, 2009, 02:52:57 PM


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.

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.

This is where I am.  I like the move as far as the O-Line goes, but it almost certainly takes them out of the running for Boldin or somebody like that.  That #28 pick kinda represented a hope that the Eagles would land one of them.  Now I just hope they don't end up in the NFC East.

Longshot, I know... but Chad could still be a possibility though.  I don't think he demands a 1st round pick now... being 31 and coming off a down year.  Hell... we got T.O. for a 5th and Randy Moss went for a 4th.

With all these rumors being floated out there as far as trades for the Eagles, Boldin was probably the most exciting, but would anyone cry if the Eagles got Peters with #28 (which they did), got Chad with a 2nd or 3rd and snagged Moreno with #21?  Again... a longshot, but I'd be happy with that overall outcome in addressing the offense.

There is no freaking way they get a veteran wideout now. Frankly I am okay with this, after Tra leaving and Runyan unsure of, our Oline all a sudden was looking very unproven. They need to sure up the line and I am hoping this guy will be a perfect fit. I don't know anything about him other than he is a pro bowler, but that doesn't mean he's the real deal.

I still hope they try and move up in the draft for RB or WR, but again, I'd rather have them go after a proven WR than gamble on a player Reid drafts.

I just wish they ran a running offense

Oh yeah, I'd actually been kind of pissed if they had traded #21 in the deal for Peters.  Hell, it would have even bothered me somewhat if they had given up #21 in a Boldin deal because #21 is all but a lock to be a RB, and I think Knowshon is at the top of the list.  I think the only way they can go outside of RB is if Knowshon is gone and Pettigrew is still out there.  I don't think they sit there at #21 and grab Donald Brown, Beanie or Shady.

I agree, but especially if they drop down a few slots and still get a RB, or someone like Alex Mack and then trade back up to the top of the second for the RB. Getting Mack would be the bomb with the O-line they are already putting together. They could probably also get a decent pick for Jamaal Jackson.

Didn't read any replies after this, but what planet are you from that you think Reid will run the ball more?  THe lack of the running game isn't because of player personnel. Its because of coaching decisions and Fatasses refusal to run the ball.

Most years I'd agree with you, but last year the running game was terrible even when Reid did run the ball. I'd like to think that Reid would run the ball more if Westbrook wasn't the only real weapon on O.

Edit: Come to think of it, the offense was much more balanced late last year and in the playoffs until Arizona. And that wasn't really the coach's fault, since we were down by a ton early and had to pass our way back into the game.

Peters Passes Physical
Posted by Aaron Wilson on April 17, 2009, 4:16 p.m.

Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters has passed his physical with the Philadelphia Eagles following his trade from the Buffalo Bills today, according to Adam Caplan of Scout.com.

Per the report, Peters is at the Eagles’ training complex.

Citing a team source, Caplan reported that the trade terms were agreed upon this morning and has been in the works ever since the Eagles’ playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Eagles’ fallback plan if the Peters deal hadn’t been executed was to shift right offensive guard Shawn Andrews to left tackle, according to a team source.

Of course, the success of the trade will hinge upon whether Peters performs to an optimum level. Sometimes, Peters’ desire and work ethic have been questioned.

“If he’s motivated, the Eagles got a steal,” NFL analyst and former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski told Scout.com. “The guy is really talented, but he didn’t play at the same level last season that he did previously.”

The Eagles are still working on a new contract for Peters as talks have begun with his Indiana-based agent, Eugene Parker.

Hard not to like this trade, they get a Pro Bowl left tackle for a late first and a fourth.  I was listening to NFL Radio yesterday and they were saying the reason that Peters had a bad season last year was mainly attributed to the hold-out.  Today they had Jason Smith on and he was in Philly today for an interview.  He said after the Eagles got Jason Peter they were pretty much "well nice of you to stop by see you later." They then dropped him off at the wrong airport or some sthein.  

I have been on the Moreno band wagon for a while now, I really hope they get him.  It is not guaranteed he will be there, but RBs haven't been going very high over the past few years.   Though they will probably draft a defensive lineman again.

im down for the trade and like it but i dont think you can ever call it a steal...especially when you consider they could have had otah for just the first rounder



Otah is not a LT in the NFL. If he's moved there it would be a mistake.

It's really hard not to like this move. If you really don't think Peters will bounce back from 2008, then that is one thing. But for anyone to say this move prevents you from getting Boldin, Edwards or anyone you wanted in the draft, then that is just ridiculous if you think Peters can play.

You can't go into an NFL season without a LT, and this team just potentially got a pro bowl caliber one who is still in his 20's.
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: Eagaholic on April 17, 2009, 06:13:40 PM
I wouldn't see the Otah and Peters deal as being a wash since Demps, and DJax or Laws (and maybe McGlynn?) also came with the Carolina deal. It might be different if they had to worry about the cap but since they don't they probably made out way better than taking Otah.

The best thing about this trade is no dreading them trading both firsts to move up for a LT. I didn't think they'd do that anyway, but anything is possible with their obsession of lineman.

If Andre Smith started to slip to around 8, it would've been nerve-wracking.

Now we still got a 1st to play with and still have the 2nd and 3rd rounders. Plus all the 5th rounders to package together and move up in earlier rounds if we still want to. There is still a ton the Eagles can do.

Fair enough, but if Peters comes back to his probowl form I still think it would be a steal, especially considering the need. It struck me last week on NFL radio that Kirwin and Ryan agreed there probably isn't a LT in this draft with Peters ability.

Just because you don't think something will happen, doesn't mean you can't dread the possibility of it happening. If you have a lump on your side and you go to the doctor and he tells you he doesn't think it is cancer, but isn't 100% sure, you'd still dread the possibility even if you didn't think it was cancer.

Good move. I don't know what it would take to get into the top 10 (21 + 2nd I'm assuming) but you're still getting an unknown. When I first found out about the trade (text from Rome) my first thought was I hope it was for the 28th otherwise I don't like this move. O-line is set, I now think they take go RB or TE with their first two picks.

So yes, solid AND in some small way helps further enjoyment of draft day knowing that no matter how farged it may end-up with reaches and trade-downs, its been a good off-season for the o-line.

I like the moves so far for Peters and Stacy Andrews, but really these huge needs were self made when they decided that even though Runyan and Tra Thomas played pretty good and were part of the line that gave up the 2nd fewest sacks of any Eagles team in history, they needed to replace them simply cause of age.

Maybe if they only replaced Runyan and re-signed Tra to a 2-3 yr deal.

Post by: Eagaholic on April 17, 2009, 11:59:06 PM
Reid's not alone, there were any number of people in NFL circles who considered Peters maybe the best LT in football in '07 before his contract dispute.

He is an odd guy but the trajectory of his career is consistent and impressive. He came in as an undrafted junior, a 330 pound TE that posted a 4.85 40 in his proday and showed the ability to make diving catches.

In 2004 with Buffalo he sticks as a special teams standout including as a wedge buster and blocked a punt and recovered it for a TD.

Before the middle of '05 he wins the starting RT job from a first round pick.

In '06 he successfully makes the transition to LT at 340 pounds, giving up only 2 sacks and no holding penalties, but probably a better run than pass blocker.

In '07 he goes to the PB and is a second team AP.

In '08 he lets it all go in the toilet because he is unhappy with his contract. 

In '09.....?

I don't know if he's a narcissistic nimrod but that whole undrafted junior thing is odd and may support that notion. I did see a draft site or two that in 2004 were projecting him as late as March to be a third round pick and one had him as the #4 TE in that draft. I seems like there must have been something off about the guy to come out and then not get drafted. Maybe it was his grades or something from his past that teams knew about, or maybe that he really wasn't seen as a viable TE or OLine prospect.

Eagles line is brutish
Posted on: April 17, 2009 2:45 pmScore: 193Sign-up to rate:Sign-up to rate: Sign-up to rate:

Don't mess with the Philadelphia Eagles offensive line.

It is nasty.

By trading for left tackle Jason Peters Friday -- the deal is pending a new contract and Peters passing a physical -- the Eagles might now be able to stake a claim as having the best line in the NFL, complete with brawlers and maulers.

With Peters in at left tackle, the Eagles can keep Todd Herremans at left guard. The right side will be made up of the Andrews brothers, Shawn at guard and Stacy at tackle, and the center is Jamaal Jackson. From tackle-to-tackle, the line will average 331 pounds. That will wear down a defense for four quarters.

Peters didn't play that well last season for the Buffalo Bills after missing training camp in a contract holdout. But he's always been one of the tackles I've liked watch play. He is nasty. When he came out of Arkansas as a tight end, I listed him as one of my annual "Better-than" players that year, players who I liked more than the scouts.

In that column I mentioned that I thought Peters could be a really good tackle. You can look it up.

I like this move by the Eagles, just like I liked the move to sign Stacy Andrews as a free agent from the Bengals. The Eagles line is now big, powerful and physical.

It is also young.

When the season starts, Jackson will be the oldest at 29. Stacy Andrews will be 28, Peters 27, Shawn Andrews and Heremans each 26.

I'll take that group right now over any other in the league for age, nastiness and talent.

Getting Peters is a great move for the Eagles. The price of a three picks. including the No. 28 pick in the first round of next week's draft, and a new contract is steep. But if Peters plays like he did a few years ago, this will be well worth it.

I like how when the Eagles actually sign a guy with an attitude problem or a history of a questionable work ethic, it's the end of the world.  When they avoid a guy because of it, it's just the stupid FO refusing to take a risk to get top talent on the team.

I think without this deal the Birds would have moved up high in the first round (maybe swapping 1sts to get KCs) and drafting one of the LTs....interesting that they had Crabtree in for a visit too.  But with that said...I found this a little entertaining after the Peters signing.

Jason Smith Visits Eagles As They Trade For Peters
Posted by Mike Florio on April 18, 2009, 8:30 a.m. EDT
The Philadelphia Eagles, who might have been able to get in position to draft left tackle Jason Smith if they had been able to package the 21st pick and 28th pick and maybe something more to crash the top five, brought Smith in for a pre-draft visit on Friday.

And as Smith was visiting with the Eagles, he learned that they no longer have a need for a left tackle.

“You hear all the right things and then 10 minutes later they say, ‘Oh yeah, we just got Jason Peters.  Sorry,” Smith told Adam Schein and Jim Miller of Sirius NFL Radio on Friday.

“By the way, here’s your ticket to fly back home,” Miller said.

Added Schein: “Thanks for visiting the City of Brotherly Love!”

“And then they dropped me off at the wrong airline,” Smith said, laughing. “The great thing is I understand that it’s all business.”

Looking at the roster, I only see 3 spots that are "needs".  RB, TE, and CB (since the Birds only have Samuel, Brown, Hanson, Ikeqwuono).  I think you'll see them hit those three spots first, then maybe LB/DE(challenge Howard's spot?)/OL(camp bodies) in the later rounds.  RB/TE should be the first 2 picks and think those will be dictated by who's there when they pick.

im so glad peters was a great tackle TWO YEARS AGO

of course i am open to him returning to that form as hes still relatively young...but jesus can we at least watch the guy play (in a passy happy offense nonetheless) before we give the best tackle in the game award to him...after all he gave up a thousand sacks last year

Great deal. At 1.28 the Eagles never would've been able to get a lineman of Peters caliber. The 4th and 6th are just gravy. This move solidifies the OL and lets the Eagles focus on other areas of need in the draft: RB, TE, DE and possibly LB or CB. As long as they get a RB with one of the first two picks this offseason has been really solid.

its not a great deal until peters plays great...something he hasnt done for almost three years

you really think the bills would have traded the best tackle in the nfl if he really was even close to the best...they have plenty of money and just signed TO to obviously win now but trade a great left tackle?

lets pump our brakes and see how dook plays before slobbering all over the trade

I think there's a genuine bit of excitement to be had by this deal.  Would I be happier if they had traded for Boldin?  Of course.  But without a good offensive line you have nothing.  I have no problem with this deal at all.  And personally I don't give a damn what ridiculous nonsense Reid has to say in the press about Peters.  I half think he says things like that to get under the skin of people who hate his guts, and to me, that's hilarious.

And I've seen Peters play quite a bit since I'm usually forced to watch the Bills after the Eagles play or on another tv at the bar when the Eagles are on and the guy can flat-out play.  Like Feva said, I don't care what sort of shtein he pulled in Buffalo.  That's ancient history as far as I'm concerned.

he hasnt "flat out played" since 2006...thats why this is not overly exciting...gotta wait and see what he does...i mean the best part of the deal is that they filled a position that was bare...that makes it a good move but not really an exciting one

peters i would classify as a hopeful acquisition not an exciting one

Man, what are you talking about? For the last two years he's been an all out beast. He's made the pro-bowl as a starter both years. Friggen' man is 6'4" and 340 lbs. With him the line will be one of the best, if not the best in the NFL.

7 sacks given up the year before

They traded him because he was going to hold out and he's major pissed with his contract because he was the third highest paid lineman on the team dispite being it's only pro bowler.

they have tons of money under the cap...and just signed TO to a large short term deal...meaning they are ready to try and win now

Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: shorebird on April 18, 2009, 09:06:02 PM
I've seen were he was listed with having given up 5 sacks to 11.5 sacks. I don't put too much stock in the sack stat. There are too variables to accruately award the reason for a sack. The number could be high or low based on just the qb alone.

I just told you why they traded him.

why not pay "an all out beast" by means of a new deal since they have plenty of money...or do they just not like great young left tackles

i agree about the sack stat in general but when you give up the most in the league and only play 13 games it should raise warning levels...and if the number could be high or low are you saying he might have actually given up more sacks than the most in the league?

Obviously they didn't want to deal with the media shtein storm that would come along with Peters holding out, and they didn't think he was worth the money he would want. But like I said before, who cares? The Bills just signed TO for christ sakes. It's not like they have a front office full of Einsteins. Even the Bill's coaches said that his ability was limitless, yet they chose to pay their other lineman rather than their only pro bowler.

LOL  Dude - it's the farging Buffalo Bills, not the Patriots, man.  They're as dysfunctional an organization as it gets in the NFL, so asking rationally why they would or wouldn't do something is like asking the same of the Raiders or taterskins.  A lot of teams in the NFL are run like shtein and the Bills definitely qualify in that regard. 

Hell, they signed a psychotic farger like Terrell Owens despite the bullshtein he's put three previous employers through.  Consider that and then tell me they're acting rationally.

They didn't want to go through what they went through last year when Peter's wasn't ready for the season opener because of holding out. Also, it was well known they would never come to an agreement because they considered his contract demands unrealistic. He's a pro bowl player, a monster run blocker. And as for the sacks, Edwards was sacked 35 times in the last two years. He's a friggen' statue.

The pros far, far outweigh the cons in this situation.

from what i understand, Buffalo is in such dire straits that unless they went to a bank and got a loan, they could not afford Peters guaranteed contract.  They actually offered him more per year than what the eagles initial offer was, and he wanted to take the eagles offer.  I think it comes back to getting low balled, and the negative view from that(look at Lito).

Exactly, they get no respect from me for a lot more reasons than just letting Darth go. But still, I will give them credit when I think they've made a good move like this one.

Igy is just being igy, argument for the sake of argument, and the Eagles, although one game away from a Superbowl last year losing a game he guaranteed they'd win, can do absolutly nothing right. Not to mention that he'll probably lay awake in bed tonight pondering the reason why Buffalo would trade Peters.

"Jason Peters is the best left tackle in football," coach Andy Reid said. "He is a powerful and athletic tackle and I have admired his play over the last few years on film. I have always believed that success in the National Football League is derived from the strong play of the offensive and defensive lines. This offseason we have added two young, top-flight offensive linemen in Jason and Stacy Andrews."

Man, what are you talking about? For the last two years he's been an all out beast. He's made the pro-bowl as a starter both years.

He deserved making the Pro Bowl last year about as much as Favre did. Probably less, because at least Favre had a good first half. Ryan Clady (far better and younger than Peters) got robbed. Michael Roos is another guy in the AFC who is unquestionably better and younger than Peters. Guys that that are why it's laughable to call Peters the best left tackle.

Peters was an elite run blocker in 2006 and 2007, but has only been playing left tackle since the middle of 2007. He is not special in the passing game and is occasionally a liability there. In his two-sack-allowed season of 2006 he was playing on the right side and facing easier competition. Last season he was out of shape all year and flat-out sucked. I certainly expect him to be in better shape this coming season, but it remains to be seen whether he can recapture what made him elite a few years ago. He is an athletic freak but in some ways his skill has not really been fully molded yet.

He should be an upgrade over an elderly Tra Thomas, and that's really all the Birds needed. If Peters plays out of his mind (which he has the potential to do, at least), it's bonus.

Giants in the picture as well?
In ESPN.com's coverage of the trade, it's mentioned as a casual aside that the New York Giants showed interest in Peters as well.  We had also heard word that the Detroit Lions were involved in conversations.  These are the first confirmed reports of other teams being interested beside Philadelphia, and the interest from these teams may have been the driving force behind the Eagles' willingness to move quickly on the trade front.  Philadelphia has also reportedly been targeting Peters since the team's January exit from the playoffs, which may have given them an edge in negotiations.

Peters admits contract affected his attitude

April 19, 2009 3:02 PM

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

Former Buffalo Bills left tackle Jason Peters held his introductory news conference with Philadelphia Eagles reporters and didn't dispel any of the concerns about his attitude or motivations.
Peters

A substantial part of the reason the Bills weren't willing to give in to Peters' contractual demands were concerns he wouldn't play up to the money. That curiosity was shared by at least two AFC general managers I spoke with over the past month.

The Eagles signed him to a six-year contract worth $60 million.

My favorite part of the news conference was when Peters said, "It blew my mind, first and foremost, for them to trade me."

Really? His mind must be blown easily. Peters boycotted every offseason and preseason workout last year. He missed the conditioning program. He skipped voluntary workouts. He didn't show for mandatory minicamp. He didn't report to training camp and missed every preseason game.

And this year's holdout would have been even uglier. The Bills' front office was convinced Peters would have held out until Week 10, the time players must report to earn an accrued season toward certain benefits and bargaining rights.

Peters was asked if his contract situation affected his play last year.

"A little bit," Peters said. "I was thinking about it sometimes. If you get beat on a play and you think about your contract ... It doesn't affect me that much. I thought about it some early in the year, but later on in the year it wasn't a big deal."

Sounds to me that if a defender blew past Peters on a particular play, Peters could shrug it off with the notion "Oh, well. I'm not getting paid enough anyway." You wonder how that attitude affected him every day in practice -- once he showed up, that is.

Although Peters was named to his second straight Pro Bowl, many football observers contended he didn't deserve the honor. Sacks allowed isn't an official stat, but a figure floating around said he surrendered double-digit sacks last year.

"That's the first time I've heard that stat," Peters replied when it was presented to him Sunday. "I don't recall giving up that many. If they charged me with that many, so what? I'm an Eagle now.

"If I give up 11 and a half sacks, I'm only human. I'm going to give you 100 percent on every play."

Peters is only human, but a human who's getting paid $25 million guaranteed not to give up sacks.

Eagles coach Andy Reid didn't sound the least bit worried.

"He has the ability to dominate," Reid said. "[The Bills] left Jason on an island the whole time the last couple of years, and he was able to do that. Their protections are a little different than what we do, but it was nice to see him out there all by himself and have confidence that he can do that."

Both of the Eagles' tackles played well in 2008. Both of them were older than God and had health issues. The eagles let them both go and replaced them with proven younger players. They might end up sucking balls. They might end up being mediocre. They might end up dominating. Either way, the moves are justifiable and potentially very exciting.

You covered it in one breath, and found ways to whine about it in the next.

I'm guessing your solution would have been simple.  Re-sign Tra and Runyan, sign Jordan Gross off the franchise tag, sign Stacy Andrews, trade for Jason Peters, use both first rounders to trade up for Jason Smith, and then... MAYBE... they've adequately addressed the OL.

Though it remains to be seen whether the Eagles’ investment in left tackle Jason Peters pays off, one league source with no connection to the Eagles or the Bills believes that the franchise from Philly fleeced North America’s team.

“Buffalo gave Peters away,” the source said.  “[Bills COO Russ] Brandon should be fired on the spot.  He has no clue as to what value means.  Philly made the best deal in the last 10 years of the NFL.”

Wow.

We’re still skeptical as to Peters’ true value.  Undrafted as a tight end, he gradually became a solid left tackle.  Though getting a player like that might have been worth the picks from the glorified crapshoot job fair that is the NFL draft, $10 million per year is a lot of money to pay to a guy who gave up 11.5 sacks last year and didn’t know it.

Jason Peters puts a premium on getting off the line quickly—maybe too much of a premium.

There is a fine line between a quick start and a false start, between protecting the quarterback and putting your team at a competitive disadvantage. The Eagles' starting left tackle hasn't found a way to successfully toe that line since coming to Philadelphia.

Peters, who had a team-high six false starts last season, jumped prematurely twice in his final preseason game against Kansas City and once in the season opener against Green Bay. He was also flagged for holding against the Packers.

Somehow, Peters and the Eagles still don't see the penalties as a chronic problem. They suggest it's just something to get used to.

"It's no big deal. That's how I've always been," Peters said. "When I was in Buffalo, I jumped offsides, but it wasn't as big of a deal. When I come to Philly, they want to make a big deal out of it. It's how I've always played. I like getting off the rock, get off the ball, get moving and get blocking.

"That's how I am. It's something I'm going to fix. But it's not a big deal like it's a mental thing. That's what I do."

What Peters does too often is leave a millisecond before the ball is snapped, especially on the road when the silent snap count is employed. Four of his six false starts last season came away from home. Two came in the season opener in Carolina and two more came at Kansas City during the starters’ preseason finale.

"It's a silent count. It's not a big deal," Peters said. "We're just watching his head turn. If it's on two, it's on two. If it's on three, it's on three. It's no big deal. I get off the rock. If you watch my tape, that's what I do."

Yep, he gets off the rock—just sometimes too early.

It could be a problem Sunday in Detroit. Not only do the Lions play indoors at Ford Field, but the Eagles will have a quarterback — Michael Vick — under center who has never started a game for the team.

"You just have to really get used to the silent count. It takes a while to get it," said right tackle Winston Justice, who was second on the team with four false starts last season. "Every team is different and it takes longer than a year to get it. I think Jason is starting to get it."

So do the Eagles. They invested $60 million in Peters after acquiring him in a trade from Buffalo last offseason, making him the highest-paid left tackle in football. Surely they didn't expect to get the league-leader in penalties as part of that investment.

“Well, listen, Jason’s the last guy who wants to have those penalties," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "But he also understands that he’s probably going against their best defensive lineman, normally. I mean, your left tackle normally ends up with that guy, so he wants to make sure he gets off quick and so on. But, he’ll work through that and get that taken care of. He’s very aware of it and one thing I know about great athletes is they’re able to correct those types of things.”

Most of the time, Peters gets the quick start that helps him silence speedy defensive ends. The Eagles drop back to pass 30 to 40 times each game, meaning Peters gets a quick start on 30-plus pass protecting plays. That is a key factor in the one holding penalty – which is a low number – called against him last season.

Still, it's the seemingly traditional false start-per-game, that puts the Eagles in a five-yard hole, that is worrisome. And Peters filled that quota against the Packers. Add a holding call to his Week 1 performance and the reigning league-leader in penalties is well on his way to repeat as champion.

I'll give Peters a little credit for yesterday.  Usually when a lineman gets his leg rolled up on like yesterday it knocks them out of the game and he was able to fight it off twice and come back out.  If nothing else, it shows me that he wants to be out there and isn't just content with collecting a paycheck.

Didinger and Baldinger broke down the Skins game on Sportsrise. Peters was an absolute monster, he was pushing DE's/LBs 10 yards down field and completely collapsing the left side of the field. He also played really well in the Colts game. I hope he can keep it up against the Giants because right now he's playing as well as any Tackle in the league.

Yeah, I think he was.  I can live with a penalty here and there other than his false starts.  Granted, he has played with 3 different QB's in the last 2 years so their cadence is different, but at the same time, I don't see everyone else moving early as much as Peters.  Either way, he's played his best football these last 2 games and hopefully he keeps that up.

How are they awful? They're 5th in the league in sacks allowed and Mccoy has flourished. Maybe they're not the best line in the NFL but they've been far from awful.

Jason Peters was alread likely out for the season after rupturing his Achilles. Then, he did it again when his Roll-A-Bout broke (see story).

But while his 2012 season is already very unlikely, Peters might lose quite a bit of money too.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortenson, Peters, as well as Baltimore's Terrell Suggs, falls under the nonfootball-injury provision of the collective bargaining agreement.

Peters was injured during off-site training, which by the terms of the CBA is a "nonfootball injury."

This doesn't mean the Eagles won't pay Peters. It is certainly their decision. But according to Mortenson's sources, both Peters and Suggs "are facing a financial reduction in 2012."

Mortenson also says that Peters will be subject to a loss of at least $3.25 million of his $7.9 million base salary because that's how much the Eagles are paying his replacement, Demetress Bell. The Eagles have already discussed a pay cut with Peters and his agent.

Peters came off NFI on Monday and the Eagles have three more weeks before they have to make their next decision. At the end of Week 9 (on Nov. 6) they can either designate Peters as practice eligible, which affords them another three-week window before activating him, or place him on injured reserve to end his season. He doesn’t qualify for the new short-term injured reserve distinction.

Reid made it clear that he plans to use all of the next six weeks to give Peters the maximum amount of time needed not only to complete his rehab but also to get back into game shape and prepared for a late-season push. And, he hopes, the postseason.

Peters realistically could play Dec. 2 against Dallas at Cowboys Stadium, the first of the Eagles' final five games.


Reid also mildly compared the recent comeback of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs from the same injury to Peters' attempt. Suggs tore his Achilles in the last week of April, about three weeks after Peters fell off a medical scooter and suffered a second tear.

“There’s a chance,” Reid said. “You saw Suggs go through his thing. Now Jason has had two of those, and I’m not gonna put him at risk. That’s not what we’re going to do. We’re going to make sure the doctors are on board, Jason is on board and then we go from there.

“The other guys are playing now and that’s what they’re doing. If Jason is physically able to be there, that’s OK. I’m not going to do anything to risk further injury.”
.

“We’ll just see how he does here,” Reid said. “He’s not ready right now.”

New head coach Chip Kelly expects that to change. For one, he brought in former Alabama offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland to bring the line back to playing with physicality. For another, the line will be much healthier, perhaps most especially Peters. According to Stoutland, the veteran left tackle is looking as good as he did pre-injury:
 
"Honestly, you wouldn't know Jason ever had an injury," Stoutland said. "For a guy his size, the leverage that he gains. . . he plays so low to the ground. Moves his feet so fast. Out of all the players I've ever coached, he's got the best balance and body control of anybody I've ever seen.''

Kapadia: Earlier this week, Geoff Schwartz helped me break down film of the Eagles' run game. He was marveling at the veteran savvy of Jason Peters. For this week's trip down memory lane, I was hoping you could share the story behind how you guys acquired Peters back in 2009.

Banner: What actually happened was he was on the practice squad of the Bills, and Howie [Roseman] was actually watching tape. He came to me and to Andy, and he said, ‘This guy's on a practice squad. He looks to me like he has some real potential. And I think if we put him on a roster, we could get him to move.' At the time, I forget what was going on with minor injuries and things, but the decision was made that it just wasn't the right time to try to move somebody off the roster for a projection. And we decided to just leave it alone.

So we put it aside, and then I had remembered this conversation. And when Howie brought it up, we all watched the tape and we all agreed that he found somebody that looked like he had a chance to develop even though he'd never played offensive line. I had kept that in my mind from this original thing that Howie had brought up and encouraged us to do. When I saw he was having a contract dispute with the Bills, I went back to Howie and Andy and said, ‘You know, remember the story, blah, blah, blah, and maybe there's a chance to get this guy.'

Now obviously he was an established player and had proven that he was not only going to develop but be a top-tier guy. And Howie was immediately excited by the thought of feeling that out. Andy was a little reluctant from some things he had heard about intangible stuff. But he made a few calls, did some research and was like, ‘You know what? Absolutely. Let's go see if we can make this happen.'

So we called the Bills and got permission to call the agent and started talking about the specifics of what they'd be looking for. And I was able to get them to a point with something that we were comfortable with. And we got into the conversation with the agent about what he was looking for. And similarly, we were able to be comfortable with that deal. Then we pulled the trigger on the thing.

And no doubt, one of the best, some could argue the best acquisition we made or the franchise has made in a very, very long time. But it started with Howie actually noticing him when he was on the practice squad. And then this follow-up from my remembering that when he started getting in this dispute over his contract with the Bills.

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.

correct

im down for the trade and like it but i dont think you can ever call it a steal...especially when you consider they could have had otah for just the first rounder

http://Jason Peters, OT

Résumé at a glance:

Signed by Bills as undrafted free agent in 2004; has played 14 seasons (Bills, Eagles)

Two first-team All-Pro appearances (2011 and 2013)

Four second-team All-Pro appearances (2007, 2008, 2010, 2014)

Nine Pro Bowls

The HOF case for Peters: Andy Reid called Peters "the best left tackle in football" after the Eagles acquired him from the Bills in 2009. Peters, who began his career as a tight end, has continued to state his case over the past nine seasons. He is freakishly athletic for his size (6-foot-4, 328 pounds) and, though hampered by injuries of late, continues to dominate opponents well into his 30s. A mentor and dedicated student of the game, Peters, who goes by the nicknames "The Bodyguard" and "The Franchise," has earned near-universal respect in his locker room and around the NFL. "I said, you need to change [your nickname] to the GOAT," his former teammate Vinny Curry once said. "He's automatically first-ballot Hall of Fame. There's no argument about that. And he's still out here working." -- Tim McManus, Eagles reporter

The verdict: 5 votes


The only unanimous selection by our panel, Peters has been first- or second-team All-Pro six times and has made nine Pro Bowls. Offensive linemen don't get stats, but that kind of recognition drives Hall of Fame résumés. Anyone who watched Peters play left tackle during his extensive prime saw a dominator who could wreck the man in front of him efficiently and quickly enough to allow his inner tight end to get out and block effectively at the second level. Longevity is one thing, but Peters remained an unstoppable monster well into his 30s. -- Graziano

Is he really the GOAT?   I mean he’s amazing but there’s been so many great LT’s...

He’s the most dominant lineman I’ve ever seen and certainly the best Eagles lineman I’ve ever seen. For bias reasons and because I’ve watched every game he’s played for the Birds I’d say he’s the GOAT. I’ve never seen a player completely collapse one side of the field. It would be unfair to compare him to other tackles over the last 30 years (Munoz, Roaf, Pace, Ogden come to mind) because we didn’t watch every snap of every game they played. Lineman don’t make highlight films so you don’t get to appreciate their body of work unless you’ve watched them on a regular basis.

Munoz, Pace and Ogden immediately spring to mind for me along with Peters. 

And Joe Thomas too, but unfortunately for him, we never got to see him play with anyone else who was remotely in his league.  That’s actually what makes his play all that more remarkable.  The teams he played on were abysmal yet he was either the best or close to it for his entire career.  That shtein is amazing.

Who is Jason Peters, the Eagles’ most interesting man? ‘He won’t start anything, but he’ll finish it’

After​ the spraying of champagne and​ the swigging of Scotch,​ after the hugs​ and​ the​ “I love​ you,​​ mans,” after the group pictures and the livestreams, after the coach’s speech, after the interviews, after the “Dreams and Nightmares,” after the showers and after the outfit changes, one person claimed the responsibility of carrying the Lombardi Trophy from the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII locker room in Minneapolis to the team buses.

It wasn’t Nick Foles, the game’s MVP. It wasn’t Doug Pederson, who out-coached the Patriots’ Bill Belichick on the game’s biggest stage. It wasn’t Zach Ertz, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass, or Brandon Graham, who made the game’s biggest play. It wasn’t anyone who played or coached that night.

Instead, decked out in a “Super Bowl Champions” T-shirt, an Eagles jacket and hat, with a cigar dangling from his mouth, a gold chain draped over his chest and sunglasses on tight, Jason Peters cradled the sport’s most valuable piece of hardware as if it had belonged to him forever. He hadn’t played a snap since Week 7.

Since arriving in Philadelphia in 2009, Peters has grown from Pro Bowler to future Hall-of-Famer, from perceived malcontent to locker-room leader. Along the way, he’s become something of a mythical figure around the Eagles’ organization. In order to understand the aura that surrounds Peters, The Athletic talked to current and former teammates, coaches and members of the Eagles’ front office. Though Peters did not respond to an interview request for this story, it turns out everybody has a Jason Peters story, whether or not they’re willing to go on the record.

In April 2009, the Eagles acquired Peters in a trade with the Buffalo Bills. For what they got in return, the cost of three draft picks was a relative pittance.

Five years earlier, Peters was an undrafted rookie tight end on the Bills’ practice squad who caught the eye of the Eagles’ 29-year-old director of football administration. Back then, the Eagles could have had him for much less.

“Very early in Howie (Roseman’s) tenure, he came in my office,” says Joe Banner, the team president at the time. “And he said, ‘There’s this guy on Buffalo who’s on their practice squad, who they’re kind of using as a lineman and I think he’s good. Maybe we should try to take him off their practice squad.”

As Banner remembers, he and Roseman then sat down to watch the film on Peters. Banner was quickly smitten, too.

“For whatever reasons at the time, we kind of presented the idea and the roster spot just wasn’t available and maybe other people weren’t as enthused as we were,” Banner says. “And so it passed. But now he was on our radar.”

By 2009, Peters had established himself among the league’s best left tackles with a pair of Pro Bowl berths. Peters and his agent, Eugene Parker, were angling for a new contract with the Bills that reflected that status, and Buffalo was unwilling to meet those demands. After all, contrary to his Pro Bowl-reputation, Peters surrendered 11.5 sacks in 2008.

“I went back to Howie and Andy (Reid) at the time and said, you know, ‘Should we see if we can take advantage of this dispute?’” Banner says. “Andy wasn’t sure because he just was pessimistic it would actually work. And Howie was like, ‘Oh yeah, we should do that.’ And anyway, the outcome of that was let’s at least reach out to the Bills and see if we can talk to the agent and get a sense of what the agent would be looking for in the deal and what the Bills would be looking for.”

Several days’ worth of phone calls later, the Eagles learned the Bills were open to trading Peters, and they agreed with Parker on the basic structure of a potential new deal for his client. Now, they needed to investigate whether Peters would be the right fit, on and off the field.

Because any player embroiled in a contract dispute can be lazily labeled as “me first,” Banner reached out to the agents of several of Peters’ teammates on the Bills’ offensive line. Reid made similar calls to friends either on the Bills’ coaching staff or familiar with the Bills’ locker room.

“Everything that came back was positive or good or neutral,” Banner says. “I mean, there was nothing. No red flags, no yellow flags, nothing.”

As for Peters’ relatively lackluster performance the year prior, Reid tasked then-offensive line coach Juan Castillo with finding an explanation. Castillo was blown away by the athleticism of the 6-foot-4 dancing bear. He also noticed Peters was not consistently getting his hips “square” to the line of scrimmage in pass protection.

‘“Then what you’re gonna have to do is change his technique, right?’” Castillo remembers Reid telling him. “I said, ‘Yeah, coach.’ ‘You’re gonna have to teach him to set square.’ I said, ‘Yeah, coach.’ Boom, done, and he made the trade. I still remember that like it was yesterday.”

In charge of the trade negotiations, Banner put the finishing touches on the deal.

Initially, the Bills asked for both of the Eagles’ first-round picks (they had acquired an extra by trading out of the first round the previous year). Over a few days, the Bills eventually accepted the Eagles’ offer of first- and fourth-round picks in 2009 and a 2010 sixth-round pick. For the Bills, those selections turned into center Eric Wood, tight end Shawn Nelson and linebacker Danny Batten. For the Eagles, Peters would arguably become the team’s most important player over the next decade. Ten years later, he’s the only member of the 2009 Eagles still on the team.

“Truthfully, we underestimated what we were getting,” says Banner. “We didn’t think we were getting a leader. We just thought we were getting a solid guy who would be fine and had a ton of talent. We ended up getting a guy with this work ethic and competitiveness and leadership skills that we hadn’t even anticipated.”

With a new team and a new contract, Peters reported for duty in Philadelphia. Castillo remembers a driven Peters immediately embracing his technique changes. He also remembers that Peters’ first practice as an Eagle ended in memorable fashion.

“I came to minicamp and went to practice in the indoor and was battling Trent Cole for the first time,” Peters recalled in 2017. “And I crushed him all practice. It was about an hour-and-45-minute practice, but in the indoor (practice bubble) you sweat a lot. So I crushed him all practice and then, after practice, (Reid) called us up and I thought we were done. He’s like, ‘We’ve got 12 hash gassers.’ So we start running the gassers, I got to about eight or nine and I fell out. When I opened my eyes, (Reid) was straddling over the top of me and he’s like, ‘Yeah, big fella, I’m gonna get you right. Don’t worry about it.’ That was one of my first moments with him that I remember.”

Any concerns about Peters’ personality and locker-room fit were quickly erased. His natural power and athleticism combined with a commitment to the craft to create the league’s premier left tackle. Discounting the 2012 season he missed with a torn Achilles, Peters earned seven straight Pro Bowl berths from 2009-2016, including two years as a first-team All-Pro.

Along the way, he earned the nickname “The Bodyguard,” which is both a convenient nickname for an offensive tackle and one befitting a player with a reputation of an enforcer. The most famous example of Peters taking care of that kind of business came in Sept. 2014 at Lincoln Financial Field, when Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker laid a blindside cheap-shot on Nick Foles. Peters reacted by steam-rolling toward Baker to deliver a few shots to the helmet of his own, and welcoming a fight with the entire opposing sideline. Peters was ejected. “I’d do it again,” he said after the game. The message was clear.

“I was up close and personal. I was on the field,” says Ertz. “He could have taken out their whole team by himself. … You don’t mess with that guy. He’s gonna have everybody’s back, whether it’s your first year in the league or your 10th year.”

Over the years, Peters has also been known to get into it — verbally and physically — within the confines of the team facility.

There was the time in the summer of 2011, after Castillo became defensive coordinator and was replaced as offensive line coach by Howard Mudd, who had a lifetime’s worth of experience but also a wildly different set of techniques. Because those changes were made in the middle of a lockout, an entire offseason of adjustments had to be condensed into training camp. Peters initially resisted Mudd’s style. Eventually, that disagreement came to a head with a memorable shouting match in the offensive line meeting room. Jason Kelce, then a rookie, remembers thinking, “What the hell? You can talk like this to coaches?”

But the steam boiling over ended up serving the greater good.

“Well, we kind of got angry at each other way back in training camp and maybe then, it’s like, ‘OK, you can stay mad if you want, but we’re gonna do it this way.’ And he bought in,” Mudd says. “He bought in and that’s what really matters.”

Peters and Evan Mathis played next to each other along the line for three seasons. They formed, perhaps, the league’s best guard-tackle tandem from 2013-2014, when they both went to consecutive Pro Bowls. But a former teammate described their personalities as “oil and water” and remembers one particularly heated practice in which the two were at odds over how to pass off defensive-line stunts. Shouting led to Peters delivering a forceful pass-set punch to Mathis’ helmet. An entanglement followed before the coaches broke it up. Once again, it may have worked out for the best.

“In the meeting room after practice, they kind of hashed it out with one another,” remembers the former teammate. “And that was it. And then they didn’t have any more problems with it.”

Most memorable may have been the aftermath of an otherwise inconsequential 2014 practice. Peters and occasionally maniacal special teamer Bryan Braman briefly got into it because Braman, on the scout-team defense, was perceived to be rushing too hard. There were only a few witnesses to what happened following practice in the trainer’s room though the story immediately spread throughout the locker room. As players remember, Peters tried to apologize to Braman, who was too worked up to back down.

“JP’s so chill. JP really don’t want problems with anybody. Like, he won’t start anything, but he’ll finish it,” remembers a player on the team at the time. “I just remember I was like, ‘Man, this is a crazy man in Braman fighting Superman in JP.’ I didn’t know who to put my money on.”

As legend goes, one punch from Peters was enough to end the fight, even if Braman later stormed through the locker room with a busted lip, yelling that he wasn’t afraid of Peters.

And yet, Peters is still described mostly as a gentle giant. The extent of his loyalty is perhaps best explained through his relationships with the three men who have coached him in Philadelphia.

After their initial butting of heads, Peters and Mudd became close. Before meetings or in the hallway, Mudd would offer Peters a three-letter greeting: “H.O.F.”

“I was pretty persistent,” Mudd says. “So I think he responded to that, honestly. I think he knows he’s a great athlete, that he’s a great talent. So why not tell him what he is and act that way? The (two years) that I had with Jason, in front of my eyes, he transformed into something that you would dream about as a coach in terms of his buying in. … He tried to get other people to buy into what we were doing, as a leader. As a coach, I really appreciated that. Because here’s your best player trying to help other people buy into what we’re doing.”

Mudd says he and Peters occasionally text each other. After Super Bowl LII, Mudd sent his familiar refrain. “I keep saying it,” he says. “I’d say it again if I saw him right now. I’d go up to him and say ‘H.O.F.’ and he’d smile.”

Under Castillo, the Eagles’ offensive line went through individual drills on the practice field about 30 minutes prior to practice — an unusual extra bit of effort compared to the league’s standard operating procedure, but one Peters embraced.

“Once you have a person like that that leads by example, it’s easy. The room’s easy,” Castillo says. “Very few people in the NFL that do 30 minutes of individual before practice. You figure a pro like that, really, what can you say? If he’s doing 30 minutes of individual work before practice, what is everybody else gonna say?”

Castillo and Peters stay in close touch. When news broke earlier this offseason that he had been fired by the Bills, Castillo was moved by a text message of encouragement from Peters. In fact, Castillo says Peters later called former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich to recommend Castillo for the Indianapolis Colts’ open offensive line coach position.

“Once JP knows that he can trust you and you have his back, Jason Peters will always have your back,” Castillo says. “Always.”

And then there’s Jeff Stoutland. When he was still coaching in college at Alabama, Stoutland used Peters’ game film to illustrate ideal offensive line play. Now, after six years of coaching Peters under two different head coaches, Stoutland’s former muse is a pupil and a friend. Peters displayed his affection and compassion for Stoutland in 2016 after the Stoutland’s family dog, Cornell, died.

“JP, he said, ‘All right, I’m gonna go try to get a dog just like Cornell,’” Stoutland’s son Jake recalled to The Athletic‘s Sheil Kapadia. “So he sent some people out. This was during the season so he couldn’t do it (himself). He had a picture of Cornell. And they searched the whole northeast for a dog. They found this dog that we have now. He gifted us this dog to help my dad. It was from him and the offensive line. But I believe it was JP’s idea. He goes above and beyond. They have such a great relationship.”

Leading by example is Peters’ M.O., but that doesn’t mean he’s silent in the locker room. When he speaks, everyone listens. In addition to Peters’ defense of Foles against Washington in 2014, Roseman fondly remembers a brief but impactful speech following a 2011 loss that dropped the team to 4-8. The gist: “Now we will find out who are the men and who are the boys, who will fight and who will not.” The Eagles closed the season with four straight wins.

“We have a Hall of Fame player and a Hall of Fame person,” Roseman said via email.

Arguably, Peters’ most important role in the locker room is as the team D.J., a position he’s held as long as anyone on the team can remember.

“He’s the reason why I have to do this pre-game Omega (Psi Phi) Step every week,” says Malcolm Jenkins. “When I first got here (in 2014) … he’s the locker room D.J., so he’s playing all the music. He’s like, ‘I wanna see the Omega Step, man, go ahead.’ He puts on that ‘Atomic Dog.’ So I did it. And then every single week, he made me do it and … then it became a thing. Every single week since I’ve been an Eagle. And now it’s just like, yeah, the team acts like they’re not even ready to play until I do that.”

Jordan Matthews remembers getting a surprising message after the 2015 season.

“JP just randomly texted me, like, ‘J-Mo, what you up to?’ I was like, ‘Nothing, me and my bro, we just chilling.’ He’s like, ‘Where yo address?’ So I send him my address, he’s like, ‘All right, be ready in like 20.’ I’m like, ‘All right.’ So me and my brother are standing outside, he pulls up and it’s like a big party truck slash bus and I’m just like, ‘Is this what he’s picking us up in?’ We walk in and it’s like 10 people that we just don’t know and JP’s in the far back looking like the kingpin. We’re just like, ‘What?’

“And there’s lights going, music playing, and he’s like, ‘J-Matt, what’s good!’ We go sit back there and he just played like, Louisiana bounce music, like soulful music, instrumentals and we started freestyling with all the people on the bus. He loves asking me to rap for him at all times,” Matthews says. “We were just driving through Philly. It was crazy. I was partying with JP.”

Other memories are more innocuous, like he and Nate Sudfeld going toe-to-toe and trading trash talk playing the locker room Pop-a-Shot or Peters’ intimidating presence on the pool table. Teammates say he wins because he makes you nervous, not because he’s that good. There were the years when Peters head-butted every player on gameday as they exited the locker room for the field. And there’s the reverence for Peters’ majestic and mysterious signature beard, which is better manicured than any surface in the league. No one knows how long it takes Peters, or whoever’s in charge of that work of art, to make it ready for the day, but there’s never a hair out of place or discolored.

To dwell on those legends, though, would be a disservice to the impact Peters has had on countless teammates. During his 10 seasons with the Eagles, Peters has embraced the role of veteran mentor. Off the field, one former teammate remembers Peters’ indispensable advice about what seemed like the menial aspects of becoming a professional, like how to handle a 401K or why it was so important to opt into the added benefits offered through the Players Association. The team’s elder statesman knew better than anyone that the game doesn’t last forever.

On the field, Peters’ willingness to work on technique after practice with young linemen and pass-rushers has become such second nature that it no longer registers as noteworthy. But every summer practice for the better part of the last decade has ended with Peters sticking around to help anyone from forgotten bottom-of-the-roster players like Malcolm Bunche and Michael Bamiro to Jordan Mailata, Halapoulivaati Vaitai and Lane Johnson, who have all been labeled along the way as Peters’ eventual replacement.

Last year, as he was forced to watch from the sideline while his team marched to the Super Bowl, Peters split his time between rehabbing his torn ACL (where he joined the sizable cast of injured characters and served as the group’s enforcer of fines) and coaching Vaitai, his replacement. Both Vaitai and Stoutland credited Peters throughout the second half of the season with imparting wisdom on the mindset and technique required for Vaitai to exceed. That process began on the cart that carried Peters off the field in Week 7 and ended with Peters emerging from the victorious locker room palming the Lombardi Trophy.

Peters and the Eagles have a decision to make this offseason.

Now 37, Peters is due $10.7 million in 2019. That’s a reasonable rate for a starting left tackle, but in 2018, Peters’ body was clearly no longer in mint condition. Though he started every contest, he missed significant snaps in four games. He played 79 percent of the team’s snaps over the course of the season. He was good, not great. He wasn’t Jason Peters.

In Vaitai and Mailata, the Eagles have a steady player with a borderline NFL starter floor and a lottery ticket with Pro Bowl upside, respectively. They also have three picks in the first two rounds of April’s draft. Releasing Peters would save the Eagles $8 million. They could also restructure his contract or Peters could retire.

Then again, Peters was also playing in his first season after ACL and MCL tears. Perhaps, age be damned, his body will be in even better shape in 2019. The Eagles and Peters have faced similar crossroads before and have reunited every time.

However the two sides proceed, Peters’ time in Philadelphia is, at the very least, nearing its end. Throughout this past season, while the rest of the team jogged through pre-practice warmups, Peters lay on his back while assistant athletic trainer Mark Lewis leaned his entire body into stretching a single tree trunk of Peters’ lower body. At one point late in the season, Lewis was otherwise occupied, so the job of stretching Peters fell to Stoutland — much to the delight of the offensive linemen.

And though Peters remained steady in his roles as D.J. and veteran mentor, he took a step back from the forefront of the team’s leadership, ceding his captaincy to Kelce. When he spoke to the media, it was typically while sitting on a stool in his locker after a game, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with his own cartoon likeness.

In many ways, Peters is the Eagles’ “most interesting man.” There are possibly apocryphal stories about his exploits behind the wheel of his many cars, or about his prowess as a high school phenom in both basketball and baseball in the small town of Queen City, Texas. Lore has it Peters has a growing list of personal Instagram accounts because every time he forgets a password, he just creates a new profile.

It’s hard to envision anything beyond his capabilities, so who knows? Maybe Peters will return to Pro Bowl form after all.

What might surprise you about Peters is his sentimental side. He is a man who cares about his legacy and the prospect of a Hall-of-Fame future. He was unapologetic about his happiness following January’s Wild Card round win over the Chicago Bears, the first playoff win of his career as an active participant. He’s not afraid to look fondly at the past.

Graham is the second-longest tenured Eagle and perhaps Peters’ closest friend on the team. As a pending free agent, he, too, faces an uncertain future in Philadelphia. Apparently, Peters has been a prolific documentarian during his time with the Eagles, and he surprises Graham every now and then with a trip down memory lane.

“He takes videos and stuff, man,” Graham says. “He’s got some old videos of me. I’m like, ‘Dang, send me that.’ On his phone. Just off the field, you know what I’m saying, on the bus, me and T. Cole listening to music in the back. … Or like taking a picture of me eating in the morning in, like, 2011, like ‘Dang, I forgot he used to always take pictures or video of, like, me eating, because I be smashing. … He just be like, ‘Man, look at all this shtein I got on my phone!’ It’s just funny when you go down memory lane, like, ‘Dang I remember that.’ It’s crazy how fast time’s flying. Chip (Kelly) was just, I was just in the room with Chip, I was just in the room with Andy (Reid). I can still smell some of that shtein (from training camp at Lehigh). So old up here.”

Nearly a year after Peters exited an alcohol-soaked locker room carrying the sport’s most sought-after prize, the Eagles’ most recent season came to an end in New Orleans without a trophy. Peters opted not to speak to the media following the game. Instead, he and Isaac Seumalo sat on their stools and bemoaned the torn Achilles suffered by Brandon Brooks and the difficulty of the rehab ahead.

Four hours earlier, as the Eagles headed into the locker room following their on-field warmups, Peters jogged in a different direction. He made his way to the sideline with a beeline to Jeffrey Lurie, the team’s owner, whom Peters once described as his “best friend.” Presumably, both were keenly aware that this could be their final pre-game chat, but we’ll never know what was said. It’s more fun to imagine.

they are in tough spot with him because of covid....there is nothing more the eagles would like to see in the offseason than andre dillards progression...not going to happen and to me that is the number one factor in bringing him back because with no peters its dillard and mailata which is kinda frightening because of the spot on the field

money isnt an issue their offseason is pretty much over and they have like 25 million in cap space

if theres a season i think you see him back...its just too much of a risk imo to go into the season with a dillard/mailata depth chart at LT coming off a skeleton offseason

From what I heard about Dillard during camp he was ready to start. From what I saw during games he needs work on his technique. I don’t see Peters getting another job because he’s broken down. I’d still take him back at LT but at a drastic discount. They missed the boat on Conklin, he’s a stud entering his prime and signed at a reasonable deal.

They'll spend it. FAs, guys acquired in trades, guys acquired in camp and traded for in season, reworking deals to get guys more money now to open up room for the next offseason...

Question isn't so much whether Peters is worth the money, but rather whether Peters is where they want to use the money. I sense they want Dillard starting at LT (whether he's better than Peters or not), which would imply they'd rather use the money elsewhere.

I mean let’s be real he’s probably not lasting too far into any season at any position...also he will probably be back outside after Dillard gives up four sacks to chase young on the first two series of the opener

My thoughts too. Read an article about Dillard working hard in the offseason but his footwork and technique was bad. He was supposedly polished at pass pro coming out of college but he looked really out of his element

im surprised jp agreed to this

my thinking is hes pretty confident dillard is going to be a disaster and hell be back on the left before sept ends....cant seem him signing up to be kelce's and johnson's bitch for 16 games

Everyone knows Dillard is going to be a disaster, but no one can admit it.  I agree..JP ain't returning to replace Brooks, and everyone knows that, too.  Especially because Pryor looks pretty good. 

Dillard does not look good.  But Eagles have to put him on the field anyway, and can't pay JP LT money..JP has figured out that no one else is gonna hire him at what he wants, so his best chance is to stay home.  He lets them call him RG and within three games he's starting at LT again.  Earning some incentives I'm sure.

All this in fantasy land because igy is right, there won't be a season.

A lot of people sold on Dillard being trash...

Their track record with draft picks speaks for itself.

Dillard is unqualified trash at RT. Jury is still out at left tackle imo. From what we saw, he still made errors but didn't get blown up on the regular like he did when he was on the right. Held his own against Khalil Mack. He's still in development. I think the Birds are right to give him this shot but make no mistake, the audition is over at the end of the season. It's not like continuing to trot out an increasingly broken-down JP at the position is any kind of solution.

JP said if they want him at LT they need to pay more

Good for him.  Would love even more now to learn what his contract language was. 
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle

i dont think they can contract for position. this is more of a JP power move which you gotta respect

He can just retire and they're out an RG as well

Pay him LT money for exactly how many games he plays there.  He usually lasts three or four series at this point, so farg it.   The Birds can afford another ten grand or so.

They can't afford shtein.  They're way way over the cap, and that's only going to get worse when next years cap is less than this year's.
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: QB Eagles on August 30, 2020, 08:20:39 AM
They currently have plenty of room under the cap for 2020. Only a handful of teams have more cap room. The issue is that 2021's cap is a disaster, so they'd like to be able to cake off people like Ertz this year to shift salary hits out of next year.

They’re 23.5M under the cap for 2020, Dio.  Next year is when they’ll have issues to deal with but even then Howie will easily maneuver them out from under it.

Not at all.  I thought they were totally screwed this year until I looked it up. 

How they can go from $23.5M under to $60M over in a single year is one for the books, that’s for sure.

A wrong statement is more likely to get you the correct answer than asking an honest question on the internet.

We'll see if he can make it through both games of the season.
Title: Re: Jason Peters - Philadelphia Eagle
Post by: QB Eagles on September 07, 2020, 01:45:43 PM
I think we'll get a full season more likely than not, but two games is still the over/under for JP.

#Eagles and Jason Peters have reworked the left tackle’s contract. Now worth up to $8 million, according to Peters’ agent Vince Taylor.

A million per quarter seems a bit steep, but they're in no position to argue.

Going on IR with a toe injury. Out at least three games.

Jordan Mailata is your LT tomorrow.

If you’ve watched Friday night lights...when coach taylor starts coaching East Dillon and cancels a game at halftime because his team is getting pummeled...there should be a similar scenario in play.

That would be amazing. Unfortunately we all know that we're going to witness him getting pushed back halfway to Australia.

At least he'll be on the field sucking instead of spending half his time running off the field to catch a breather.

Only reason to bring him back after last season should have been Jason Peters Day at the Linc in 2022.
