Jason Peters returns to the Eagles on a one year deal to play guard
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Jason Peters to a one year deal worth up to $6 million dollars. However, it looks like he’s moving to guard to replace Brandon Brooks.
Jason Peters gets a one-year deal worth up to $6 million, with $3 million in guarantees to go back to the #Eagles as a guard.

It was reported this weekend that there will be big Eagles news this week which had many fans speculating. It turns out re-signing a 38-year-old offensive lineman is “big news”.

I don’t think that this is a good signing at all, looking at the available legit guards on the market. The Eagles must have trust in Jason Peters to learn guard and keep up to speed. Peters also has an injury history, and there is a very high chance he doesn’t play all 16 games. Jason Peters and the Eagles organization have a very strong relationship, so it’s not surprising that they made a deal work.
Jason Peters had options early in free agency as a tackle, per his agent Vince Taylor of Elite Loyalty Sports. Decided to bide his time and when the #Eagles offered an opportunity at guard he hopped at the opportunity to return. “His heart is just in Philly,” Taylor said.

Signing Peters does give the Eagles offensive Line some depth in case either Lane Johnson or Andre Dillard goes down. Hopefully, Peters can step in and play well at right guard, or else the Eagles might be in trouble.
