The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday that they have signed OT Jason Peters to a one-year extension that will keep him under team control through the 2019 season.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Peters is now set to make $32.5 million over the next three years and has $15.5 million in guaranteed money as part of this deal.
- Rapoport adds that the one-year extension for Peters includes an $8 million signing bonus.
This comes just a day after Peters indicated to reporters that he’s looking for restructure contract from the team that will prevent him from being a potential cap casualty in each of the remaining years of his contract.
Peters suggested that adding more guaranteed money to his contract would provide him the assurances he’s seeking and apparently got it from the Eagles.
Peters, 35, is in the fourth year of a five-year, $48.3 million contract that included $19.55 million guaranteed and a $5 million signing bonus. He is set to make a base salary of $9.995 million this year to go along with another $10 million in 2018.
In 2016, Peters appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and was a Pro Bowl selection. Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 8 overall tackle out of 78 qualifying players.
