Report: Jason Peters Resigns with the Eagles on a 1 Year Deal
14 July 2020 Uncategorized
We had a good few days to speculate on what Brian Baldinger’s tweet could mean for the Eagles this week. Was it Clowney or Griffin? Was it Warford or Thuney? LeSean McCoy? In the end, it really was the most predictable outcome. The Bodyguard, Jason Peters himself, resigned with Philly on a 1 year, $3 million guaranteed deal that’s worth up to 6 million in incentives, according to Adam Schefter.
Hold up though, because Peters was not brought back to play the position he has for the last 10 years, no. He was brought in to specifically slot in at right guard, where we just lost Brandon Brooks to a blown Achilles injury.
At 38 years old, the questions about whether Peters can step in and play right guard at his usual high level are very valid. Already prone to holding and false start calls over the past few years, we can probably expect to see a few bad ones right off the bat as JP gets adjusted to game time at his new position. It’s also not lost on anyone that this may not be the only position that Peters plays this year, because if Andre Dillard struggles to hold down the LT spot, he may find himself replaced temporarily by Peters as the Eagles will look for the most stable formation over the course of this season.
At the end of the day, we will probably see a few new offensive line formations as Coach Stoutland mixes around pieces to try and find the best starting lineup, but however it ends up, hopefully Peters will be able to transition successfully into a new spot.
