Rapoport says Philadelphia plans to move Peters, who has played left tackle since he joined the Eagles years ago, to guard to replace injured starter Brandon Brooks.

Adam Schefter reports Peters’ deal is worth up to $6 million and includes $3 million in guarantees. 

Despite letting Peters walk earlier this offseason, the Eagles had left the door open to a possible return even as they gave the indication they were ready to move on with 2019 first-round OT Andre Dillard at left tackle. 

Peters received interest from a number of teams this offseason but elected to stay patient. He has said he wants to play until he’s 40. 

Peters, 38, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas back in 2004. He spent five years in Buffalo before being traded to the Eagles in 2009.

Peters signed a four-year, $53 million extension in Philadelphia after the trade. Last year, Peters signed another one-year extension worth $6 million for the 2019 season. 

In 2019, Peters started 13 games for the Eagles at left tackle.  He was Pro Football Focus‘ No. 6-ranked tackle out of 83 qualifying players.
