Jason Peters to Eagles Could Be Close

According to the dynamic duo of Sal Paolantonio and John Clayton, Bills left tackle Jason Peters is on his way to Philly to meet with Eagles’ brass.

If these reports are accurate, it would likely cost the Birds at least one of their two first-round picks. Then they have to hammer out new contract with the disgruntled Peters.

I’m not a huge fan of Peters. His motivations seem to be guided by money and money alone. Is he really a team guy? I hope Reid and Co. have done their homework on him. Stay tuned for further developments.

Update: Fox Sports Jay Glazer is reporting the Eagles have traded their 28th pick in next weekend’s draft, a second-day selection, and a 2010 pick for Jason Peters. Still no confirmation from the Birds, yet.

Update Part Deux: ProFootballWeekly.com says it’s a done deal and that a 1st (28th) and 4th this year and a 2010 6th round pick are what it cost the Eagles to land Peters.

    I would love this trade but not if we give up both our first rounders i would do it for a 1st and maybe a 4th and 5th saving the other 1st and the 3rd to trade for bolden…that would be my fantasy draft ha…but i think after our OL coach jaun castillo works with peters he would be amazing he is an amazing coach

    This is a great move. Despite what most Eagles fans wanted to believe, we needed a Left Tackle much more than a reciever. Now with aquiring a perennial pro-bowler in that spot, our line is beyond solid. This pretty much eliminates any chance of seeing Boldin in midnight green but it was the best move for the team. I love it.

    Jason Peters had a horrible year last year and was no where close to proo bowl caliber. he only made it to the pro bowl because of the previous season. He is not a team player and is motivated by money. Once he gets the money he will coast. Philadelphia is being played for a patsy by Buffalo. This guy stunk up the field last year.

    Hey there:

    Bills fan here.

    Peters was great in his first few years. He was versatile (started as a TE) and showed a lot of promise and skill. The past two years have been rough, though. The holdout last year cost him as he was woefully out of shape the first four games. The rest of the year he was responsible for way too many easy sacks. In the Jets game, with only a minute left, he looked like a revolving door letting the DE right by him to force a fumble-sack that cost the Bills the game. Most Bills fans feel he got the second Pro Bowl nomination on reputation, not merit.

    If he returns to his earlier form, you’ve got a winner for years to come. If he suddenly becomes unsatisfied because of his money, you’ll have trouble.

    He didn’t earn last year’s Pro Bowl invite. He was terrible. But, if money is what he wants, the Eagles have more than enough to accommodate him.
