The Eagles have found their replacement for Jason Peters. Former Bills LT Demetress Bell has signed a 5 year deal with the team. You may have seen him called "Demetrius," but his actual name is spelled Demetress.
We'll give more details as they emerge (like what does 5 years mean for his and Peters future?), but this is what Reid and Roseman had to say.
"Demetress was one of the top free agent offensive linemen available this year and we are happy to be able to add him to our squad," said Andy Reid. "We had a chance to meet him over the weekend and study him extensively on tape and we came away quite impressed with what we saw and heard. He's a great athlete."
Added Eagles general manager Howie Roseman, "Demetress is a guy we've followed since he joined the league. He's a big, athletic left tackle and he has quite a few games of experience under his belt with Buffalo. He'll excel with our style of play on the offensive line."
