Peters trade working in Bills favor

Paul KasprzakContributor IMarch 31, 2010

The Buffalo Bills took a big gamble last year when they traded away left tackle Jason Peters for a first round National Football League Draft pick, which turned out to be guard Eric Wood.  Already it looks like the trade is paying off for the Bills.

According to Tim Graham of, an ESPN Insiders article rated Peters as the worst rated left tackle in the NFL as he allowed seven sacks and four hurries.  Looks like the Bills front office were right on this one.

Eagles last year allowed 38 sacks, which means Peters accounted for a little bit under for one fifth of the total number of sacks.

The fact of the matter is that this is the second straight year that Peters has allowed the most number of sacks of starting left tackle.

You can be assured that Eagles fans are a astute and vocal group of people, which means if Peters doesn’t improve they are going to be ripping the Eagles brass apart for trading for Peters.

In the end,  the Bills front office just might be getting its act together.
