NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will retain LT Jason Peters.
The Eagles have some cap concerns and needs at high-priced positions, so there had been some speculation they would move on from the veteran tackle or at the very least ask him to take a pay cut. Neither option appears like it will happen, so Peters will make $10.7 million in salary and bonuses to protect Carson Wentz's blindside in 2017. Feb 23 - 10:20 AM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Eagles want LT Jason Peters to take a pay cut.

The Eagles have touched base with Peters, but it's unclear where he's leaning on the matter. Peters carries a cap number of $11.7 million, and the Eagles want that number to come down as Peters turned 35 in January. Lane Johnson is the left tackle of the future in Philly and signed a mega-extension last offseason, but he was slapped with a 10-game PEDs ban and is on thin ice with the league. Peters has a ton of leverage, while the Eagles have minimal cap room.

Eagles EVP Howie Roseman said the team "certainly" wants LT Jason Peters to return next season.

"He has really ingrained himself as a leader of this football team," Roseman said. "Anyone who watched us play saw the impact he has on the game. We certainly want to have him back." While Peters, who will turn 35 later this month, is still a top-flight left tackle, money will be the primary sticking point in his return. Peters is owed a $9.95-million salary and will cost $11.2 million against the cap next year. While his play this season justifies that salary, the Eagles are already paying RT Lane Johnson like a left tackle, and they could use the cap space. Still, it sounds like Peters is in Philly's plans moving forward.

Eagles LT Jason Peters exited Week 11 against the Seahawks with a forearm injury, but he returned in the second quarter.

Peters was taken straight to the X-ray room after exiting the game with a left forearm injury in the first quarter, but he was later cleared to return to the game.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said LT Jason Peters' back has not been an issue this offseason.

34-year-old Peters' back was problematic all last season, costing him two games and hurting his pass protection. "We can’t, as a staff, be on the field with our players," Pederson acknowledged. "But what I’ve seen in the weight room and talked to our strength and conditioning staff, he’s done a good job." Peters was not present at the first week of voluntary workouts, but he is expected to participate in the upcoming minicamp. After adding Brandon Brooks and Stefen Wisniewski in free agency, Philadelphia's offensive line should be much improved this season.

New Eagles coach Doug Pederson wants to keep LT Jason Peters on the roster.

"I think J.P.’s got several good years left in him," Pederson said. "I think that he does the right things in the offseason to get himself ready to go for another year." Coming off an injury-riddled season, there was some speculation the Eagles would move on from Peters and his $9.2 million cap hit. It does not appear that will happen, but the front office could still ask the 34-year-old former All-Pro to take a pay cut or restructure his deal.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said LT Jason Peters sat at the end of Philadelphia's Week 16 loss to the Redskins because of an injury he suffered early in the game.

"Jason just could not go at the end of the game," Kelly said. "Jason’s given us everything; he’s been a warrior all season long. It’s unfair to say he’s not giving us his all." There was a report Peters removed himself from the lineup in something of a protest against Kelly, but Peters has been dealing with a back injury for most of the season. His availability for Week 17 is uncertain.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) is expected back for Week 13 against the Eagles.

Mon, Nov 30, 2015 01:32:00 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) faces "an uphill battle to play" Sunday against the Buccaneers.

He's been dealing with a pinched nerve in his back for several weeks. Lane Johnson has been filling in for him at left tackle. Peters will try to return for Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Lions.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) didn't practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 11 against the Buccaneers.

He wasn't available for the team's walkthrough today and will likely be a game-time decision. It's unclear if Peters suffered a setback at Thursday's session. Lane Johnson would fill in at left tackle if Peters has to endure his third straight absence.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 12:54:00 PM

Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Peters has missed the past two games, though RT Lane Johnson hints he expects him back Sunday vs. the Bucs. Peters' return would be a big boost for a team rolling with Mark Sanchez at quarterback.
Thu, Nov 19, 2015 02:54:00 PM

Sun, Nov 15, 2015 11:29:00 AM

According to Howard Eskin of FOX 29, Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) will dress Sunday against the Dolphins but will "only be used if needed."

It's a little surprising the Eagles are being so cautious with Peters after he practiced all week. Lane Johnson should get another start at left tackle.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 11:02:00 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) is listed a questionable for Week 10 against the Dolphins.

Fri, Nov 13, 2015 02:28:00 PM

Eagles LT Jason Peters (back) is practicing again Thursday.
