For the second time in less than two weeks, a Philadelphia Eagles legend that will one day enter the franchise’s Hall of Fame has been mentioned in conjunction with the Chicago Bears. First came the news about Doug Pederson, the only man on Planet Earth that can say he was the head coach of a Super Bowl-winning Eagles team. He was seen at a Bears practice rocking Chicago’s team colors.

The word was Doug was just a guest, but come on. There was no way something like that was going to happen without a few news publications saying something.

The news doesn’t stop there though. Here we are, one week later, and the subject of conversation is the man affectionately known as The Bodyguard. According to his agent, Elite Loyalty Sports, Jason Peters is signing with Chicago.

Take a look for yourselves.

A Philadelphia Eagles legend adds another chapter, one set in Chicago, to his story.

No one will ever accuse Jason Peters of having self-esteem issues. You might think he’s old. You might think he’s washed up and way past his prime, but for some reason, even though there’s plenty of film that’s been recorded over the past couple of seasons that corroborates your theory, Jason Peters disagrees.

Jason Peters keeps saying that he wants to play, and someone keeps giving him the opportunity to do so. At the time of this story being written and published, for the first time since the Buffalo Bills traded Peters to the Philadelphia in exchange for three draft picks, Peters will play football for someone other than the Birds.

The legend continues. After 219 games and earning a spot on the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team and after earning nine Pro Bowl nods (2007–2011, 2013–2016), two First-team All-Pro designations (2011, 2013), four Second-team All-Pro nods (2007, 2008, 2010, 2014) (and a Super Bowl ring), Jason Peters will continue his career in the Windy City. He’ll have to make the team, but the next few weeks of Chicago Bears football should be interesting to watch.
