It looks as though the wait is over in the Jason Peters saga. Buffalo Bills fans have learned that the Pro Bowl left tackle will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles.

WGR 550 in Buffalo has already reported this news as of 1:15 p.m. Friday. Tim Graham and Sal Paolantonio of ESPN have reported that the two teams are close to finalizing a deal.

Graham said the deal would send Peters to Philadelphia for a first- and fourth-round pick in the upcoming 2009 NFL draft and also a conditional pick in the 2010 draft. The first-round pick would be the 28th overall selection.

The Bills already have the 11th overall selection.

According to ESPN, the Eagles would like to have a contract in place before the trade is completed. Peters has been asking to be the highest-paid tackle in the league for over a year now. He is set to make only $3.375 million next season.

ProFootballTalk.com has already confirmed the trade.
