Jason Peters is Coming Back for Another Season

I hate this move, but I guess they didn’t have much of a choice:

Ian Rapoport reports the deal is worth “a max of $10 million,” citing Elite Loyalty Sports, which represents Peters. The deal reportedly guarantees $5.5 million, and Peters was originally set to count $13 million against the cap this year, so at least they got that number down.

I’m with Russ on this one. Peters is 37 years old and coming off a season in which he played every single game but could only stay on the field for 79% of the snaps. He played 73% of the snaps in the Saints playoff game after making it through the entirety of the Bears win. Maybe he’ll be better now a full season removed from the ACL tear. I dunno.

Thing is, the Eagles sort of had to do this deal, because they don’t have a guaranteed replacement on the roster as of March, 2019. The fact that Peters is coming back is more of a indictment on the Birds’ failure to develop a left tackle of the future, be that Big V, Jordan Mailata, or even moving Lane Johnson to the left and finding another RT instead.

Best case scenario, one of the aforementioned guys has a brilliant camp and wins the job, or they draft a LT who can take over sooner rather than later. But without any kind of sure bet on that side, you can do worse than bringing back the aging nine-time Pro Bowler for a final season.

This is it though, for real. If Peters is coming back, then Sproles has to go. You gotta move on from these old dudes and let them ride out into the sunset, or in Peters case, the Hall of Fame.

Thanks for everything JP, but we gotta move this thing forward.

    1. lol yeah right

      you post on this site multiple times per day because you either have a boring loser job or no job at all

      1. Hey, I also post on this site multiple times per day because I have a boring loser job. I resemble that remark. I only got this job because I like electricity and the damn bill keeps showing up every month – even the short months, like February. Highway robbery.

  2. Post your w2 and I’ll post my broker statement, brah. Doesn’t take more than 20 seconds to troll your a55

    All talk kinkee

    1. bro you ain’t brokering shit

      you’re sitting at your cubicle waiting for me to post on here, then responding with the same comment over and over again

      seriously, what would you do without my stories? where would you post? your life would be without meaning or purpose

    2. There is nothing more sad or lame than a grown assed man challenging someone to show paystubs or tax returns. You’re a small, insignificant person.

    3. anybody worried about what someone makes is pretty much on the low end of the income level. People with real jobs aren’t worried about what Kevin makes.

      1. If that so called “coffee clause” is real, then I like the deal because it means he won’t be coming out multiple times per game to shit in the blue tent. Insiders say their #1 concern was not age, but IBS combined with JP loading on caffeine pregame

  3. That’s fucking great…guy can’t move and good for at LEAST 25 yards in penalties a game…JUST FUCKING RETIRE

    1. We won a super bowl with big V at LT and the dude still can’t get any respect. Is he great? No. Serviceable, absolutely. With starter reps I think he can do it. But yeah this signing gets a big shrug from me…

  4. Thank goodness we brought back this walking injury and walking penalty. I don’t get the love fest for this grotesquely out of shape slob. How many games does he start and then not finish with phantom injuries? He pulls himself from games “injured” when he’s getting beat like a dog all the time.

  5. Offseason is looking great, Howie!

    The only thing keeping the Eagles out of last place are Eli Manning and Case Keenum.

  6. “expert”, Peter’s also played through torn biceps last year …you couldn’t so much as type your lame write ups if the same happened to you, try going out and blocking nfl defensive lineman and do a good a job as Peter’s did, you fucking tool.

    “I hate this move”

    Who are you replacing him with, “expert”?

    Let’s see your top 20 left tackle prospects in this draft.

    Or let me guess, you wanted to turn the left side over to Mailata, no doubt you’ve been sold on his ability as a left tackle based on the silly rugby tape, nevermind that hes played only 10 minutes in the preseason and wasnt good enough to be active during the season.

    What’s clear to me is how little you watched Peter’s play week to week. Guess you were too busy keeping a lookout for when an announcer mispronounces a players name. God knows we all really look forward to that portion of the your “analysis”

    1. I think the fact that Peters is constantly hurt is the issue. Bringing up the torn bicep thing isn’t helping the argument the Eagles are better off with him.

    2. lol this geek is the 30 year old wigger in a jersey that lives and dies with outcomes of the sports entertainment nfl

  7. “DeSean Jackson and @Eagles are destined for each other again, barring the unforeseen” -Chris Mortensen. This is fine.

  8. DeSean will split dis wiiiide open, like he did ta all da high school b!tches last time he was here
