Shortly after the Eagles announced the 5 year contract extension for Jason Peters, a few players took to Twitter to congratulate Peters. (Note: Peters himself isn't on Twitter, but he does have Instagram.) It's no secret Peters is one of the most respected players in the locker room given his veteran status and elite talent level. Peters has been with the team since the Eagles traded for him in 2009.
