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.
