According to Mike Garafolo, the deal is worth up to $6 million, but has $3 million guaranteed.
Peters has been a tackle for the team since 2009 and spent five seasons in Buffalo before that. The Eagles are now planning on moving him to guard to help cope with the loss of Brandon Brooks, who tore his ACL this offseason.
Moving to guard and replacing a Pro Bowler won’t be easy for the veteran tackle, but he has familiarity with the system and was at one point an elite tackle.
The 38-year-old Arkansas alumn is a nine-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro. He was also on the Eagles when they won their first Super Bowl title.
