Jason Peters reworks deal with Eagles, can make up to $8 million

Word in late August was that Jason Peters wanted more money from the Eagles if he was going to take over at left tackle for the injured Andre Dillard and the two sides have worked out a revised deal for his services.

The Eagles announced the agreement on Thursday morning. Peters’ agent Vincent Taylor told multiple reporters that his client’s deal is now worth up to $8 million. He had initially signed a one-year, $3 million deal to rejoin the team as their replacement for Brandon Brooks at right guard.

The revised deal includes a $2 million signing bonus and $4 million in guaranteed money.

The Eagles looked at other options to replace Dillard, but head coach Doug Pederson announced this week that Peters would be back at his familiar position. Matt Pryor is expected to start at right guard.

  1. I love JP, but you don’t come back to the team then refuse to play LT when they have a couple injuries and extort them for more money. That is not a Team first attitude and a good way to be the only legacy fans remember after a great career. Sad

  2. Wait, how is he a bad guy? Because he wanted more money to play a more difficult position of protecting the QB blindside?

    I’m getting a promotion at work, I’m definitely going to make sure I’m getting a pay raise also

  3. Fanboy feels he extorted the Eagles. As they cut dudes daily who are supposedly under contract. Shut up stupid

  4. Can’t wait to see turn-style Peters try and stop the d-ends from the Cowboys, it should be very entertaining to see them blow by him.

  5. Lmao 😂 old man at LT and old man at WR not to mention the QB head games from the draft, enjoy watching another Cowboys super bowl dynasty!

  6. Any eagles fan has been hearing both sides of this argument for weeks… Everyone from the, “ if I got a promotion I’d get a raise argument “ to the “ team first, he’s extorting them argument “.

    The way I view it is that it’s in the middle. Let’s be honest. I’m not JP’s accountant but I’m assuming he doesn’t need to come back for the check. The eagles need him way more than he needs them and out of loyalty and a love of the game, he’s coming back. With that said, I don’t know of one starting left tackle in the NFL that’s making 3 million a year and I’d certainly doubt anyone would come back for that number if they had JP’s resume’.

    He could easily walk away and retire. It’s not cut and dry like other NFL players. He’s a hall of fame. He’s a legend in Philadelphia. He’s a team first guy through and through. However, that doesn’t give the organization latitude to take advantage of those things. They worked it out and I’m happy they did but, his is truly an unique circumstance that shouldn’t be categorized with anyone else in the NFL.

  7. Peters helped the team in a pinch when Brooks went down. He signed a team friendly deal when he could have held out for more. Now that Dillard is gone too, the Eagles returned the favor by throwing a little more cash at Peters. I think this was fair by both sides. Peters could have walked away if he didn’t get starting tackle money. The team could have simply refused. They met halfway.

    Extorted? Why would he play the hardest position on the offensive line and not be paid comparatively to others at his spot, especially with the All-Pro years he’s given the organization? What happened to this being a business?

  9. Glad to see JP sign because I was going to miss seeng the John Deere Meat Wagon Team on the field at the Eagles game.

  10. Caliz, you funny man. The boys have won a total of 5 playoff games in the last 23 years. There last Super Bowl was in 1994. You must be smoking cow turds son… I’ll enjoy watching the cowboys blow the last game of the season to open up a playoff spot for the 2017 SUPERBOWL CHAMPS…

  11. JPs deal for this year originally was for three and could be worth up to 6. Basically the eagles just guaranteed it. There’s a lot of history with Roseman and Peters. I’m sure they were pretty amicable about it. JP is helping Howie…and Howie is saying thank you.
    If I was a Cowboys fan I would be talking up their offense right now. It has elite potential. I probably wouldn’t mention the defense. The only thing elite about the Cowboy’s defense is DeMarcus Lawrence’s contract.

    btw, the last Cowboys Super Bowl win was in 1995 not 1994, also the Cowboys have 5 of those shiny Lombardi’s and your Shegles only have 1……..have a nice day!

  13. Love all the people complaining when he was asking for money and saying he shouldn’t get it. Guess he’s smarter than y’all lol.
