Yesterday, Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters spoke to the media and wanted the Eagles to rework his contract so he can retire an Eagle. One day later, the contract is reworked and Peters got what he wanted.
#Eagles signed LT Jason Peters to a 1-year extension that puts him on the books for $32.5M max over 3 yrs, source said. $15.5M in guarantees

The deal also includes an $8 million signing bonus. This move made sense for both parties as it is very likely Peters will now retire an Eagle.
Giving Peters more guaranteed money and a signing bonus does help the Eagles cap. This move really just made too much sense.
Going forward, the Eagles now know Peters has just three years left to play. Eventually, they are going to need a tackle, but with Peters playing for a couple more years, they can now delay their search.
The future Hall of Famer is going to retire an Eagle.
