Eagles Circling a Buffalo For Vacant LT Position

As reported by KFFL and Eagles.html" target="_blank" title="The Philadelphia Inquirer">The Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday the Eagles have paid close enough attention to the recent stalemate between LT Jason Peters and the Buffalo Bills to prepare a trade.

Peters, a two-time Pro-Bowl selection (2007-08), will have a remaining base salary of $7.2 million over two years and wants a new contract worth similar to or more than Jordan Gross' 6-year, $60 million deal. If a new extension cannot be reached the Bills will look forward to trading the 2003 All-SEC Second Team Selection.

Peters (27) was an undrafted free agent from Arkansas in 2004 for the Buffalo Bills originally as a blocking tight end and special teams specialist. The next season he had supplanted former first rounder OT Mike Williams as the starting right tackle.

In 2006 Peters was moved from right tackle to left tackle in the middle of the season and showed potential as becoming an All-Pro selection. The 6'4", 340 pounder later earned the All-Pro tag in 2007, along with the acknowledgement from Madden 2009 with a 97 overall rating.
