Update: We have some more details about Jason Peters’ new deal with the Eagles, and it looks like Howie is up to his same old magic, creating a bit more cap space for the team while still giving the veteran a good deal.
As part of his reworked one-year deal, Eagles OT Jason Peters will earn a base salary of $3.5M (down from $5.75M), per source. For cap purposes, the deal creates $2M in cap space for Philly. He now counts $8.67M against the cap.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 12, 2019
It looks like the Eagles offensive line will keep another one of its’ anchors, with the team officially agreeing to a one-year deal with left tackle Jason Peters, who will now enter his 11th season in Philadelphia. Contract details:
Despite suffering a number of injuries the past two seasons, and speculation that he may retire — or be forced to retire should the Eagles decide to move on — The Bodyguard is back for at least one more round in the city he now calls home.
Peters was motivated in 2018 after watching his team win a Super Bowl from the sideline in 2017, and the fire in his eyes to be involved in another championship run was real — and notable having played in all 16 games despite being knocked out of a few. Now he’s got yet another chance to make that postseason run he’s been dreaming of.
Carson Wentz has to be happy with the news that not only will Jason Kelce be back, but JP will also return for one more year.
