Longtime Eagles LT Jason Peters he is open to playing properly if he will help him find a job, like Mike Garafolo of the NFL network tweets. Peters was classified as no. 6 overall in 2019 for Pro Football Focus advanced metrics, but is still looking for a new job as we reach the second wave of free agency.
Of course, part of this is Peters’ advanced age. He turned 38 in January, so teams needing an OT are probably trying to see if longer-term options are available. At this point, it is fair to ask whether Peters will have to wait until after the project to find a new club.
But he will certainly play somewhere in 2020. During an extraordinary 16-year career, Peters has amassed nine hints of Pro Bowl, two first-team All-Pro offers and a Super Bowl ring. He has already played the right side previously, and it probably wouldn’t be too difficult for him to return to RT if necessary.
Buccaneers, who are clearly all-in in taking home a championship in 2020, could see Peters as a winning option at RT, and while the Browns have filled their right vacancy by signing Jack Conklin to a huge free trade contract, Cleveland LT’s work is still open. Chargers also define themselves as a potential landing point.
