Jason Peters will be wearing the white and green for the Philadelphia Eagles next season.
, large and in charge offensive tackle, is being traded by the Buffalo Bills
to the Philadelphia Eagles
in exchange for three draft picks.
Peters had been trying to renegotiate a long-term contract with the Bills, and the Buffalo team apparently was fed up with trying to get to agreeable terms.
Peters only started in one game last season, and had been the source of contention for a season, after demanding more money from the Bills.From CBS Sports: Tired of trying to re-sign two-time Pro Bowl tackle Jason Peters, the Buffalo Bills have agreed in principle to trade him to the Philadelphia Eagles for three draft picks -- a first- and fourth-rounder in this year's draft and a sixth-rounder in 2010.
The deal, sources said, is contingent on Peters working out a new contract with the Eagles and passing a physical.
The Eagles have two first-round draft picks and would surrender the second, or 28th overall, in the deal for Peters. Initially, one source close to the Eagles said, Buffalo considered making the trade for a first- and third-rounder this year but, in the end, held out for three draft picks to give the Bills more flexibility.
