On March 5, the Eagles announced they and Jason Peters had “mutually agreed” to let the left tackle test the market. Sixty-four days later, Peters remains a free agent with no indications that he has received an offer elsewhere.

Peters, 38, continues working out and still plans to play this season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Peters posted a workout video for all 32 teams.

He has “spoken with the Eagles but is keeping his options open,” Schefter adds.

The options appear pretty limited. The 49ers traded for Trent Williams. The Browns drafted Jedrick Wills Jr. The Vikings drafted Ezra Cleveland. The Giants drafted Andrew Thomas. The Jets drafted Mekhi Becton. The Dolphins drafted Austin Jackson. The Bucs drafted Tristan Wirfs.

Washington still has uncertainty at left tackle after trading Williams.

But the Eagles might be the best (and only?) landing spot for Peters. He has made nine Pro Bowls and was all-decade for the 2010s, but Peters has missed 12 games over the past three seasons and hasn’t made the Pro Bowl since 2016.

  1. If he does end up back in philly, it’ll ultimately be good for the team. But I’m sure that they’ll (wisely) not depend on him 100% any longer and expect that he’s gonna miss some games. When he wasn’t hurt last season he played quite well for a left tackle in his late 30s.

  2. Eagles or Redskins may be his best option for now but it wont necessarily stay that way. Hes already waited it out and missed out on any spots but any team losing their starter especially with a premier type(or premier investment in their)qb would likely put Peters at the top of their list above whoever their current backup at the time is.

  3. If the price is right the Eagles should definitely sign him. With Dill ready to take over they don’t need him every down. You can never have too much depth on the line and despite his age he a physical mutant, a glutton for training, an elemental force! It’s a cliché I know when talking about veteran players but he really a clubhouse leader who leads by example.
    Still a couple of part time years left in him.
