Jason Peters moves back to Left Tackle
Doug Pederson announced in today’s press conference that Jason Peters will officially move back to the starting Left Tackle position. Peters, signed as a Right Guard replaces Andre Dillard who is out for the season with a torn bicep. Matt Pryor and Cordy Glenn were among some of the names considered for the starting spot as Peters reportedly demanded more money if he were to transition back over.
Doug Pederson won’t say if the Eagles are signing Cordy Glenn or not.
He says Jason Peters came in to his office this morning and has decided to slide over to left tackle.

According to Brandon Lee Gowton, Pederson said that Peters came into his office this morning and decide to move over to the Left Tackle spot. Cordy Glenn was never officially signed and it is still unsure if he will be brought in as a backup for the Eagles.
This now leaves the Right Guard position open as it likely looks that they will go with Matt Pryor to start but some other names are also in contention such as Jack Driscoll.
Peters is 38 this year and will be his 12th season as the Left Tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles.
