Jason Peters declined the offer better than what the Philadelphia eagles in order to return to Lincoln financial field this offseason, according to NBC sports the eagles insider John Clark.
Nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle should go from the team after he became a free agent at the end of the season, but he recently returned on a one-year contract worth up to $6m.
It comes after Brandon Brooks suffered a season ending Achilles tear, with Peters now expected to move on the right guard.
“Jason Peters is a proud man,” Clark said Sky Sports News. “He said he was going to be a left midfielder, if he comes back, but I think that he saw his proposals he had received, told me that he got one offer which was more money.
“$3 million for one year with the eagles, and with bonuses that could take it up to $6m. I think he loves the eagles. (Owner) Jeffrey Lowery is a good friend of his, they have a connection.
“When they saw that Brandon Brooks go down I think Jason Peters, who is not going to get the opportunity at left tackle, they have Andre Dillard, I think Jason said you know of the other options, the eagles the best chance to win and he likes lane Johnson.”
Peters never acted in on a permanent basis in his career, but will be near the three-time Pro Bowl tackle lane Johnson in what could be a formidable blocking Duo.
“It’s a big change,” added Clark. “I talked to the eagles striker from past years, tra Thomas and he said that it’s so hard to go from the left side to the right side, especially after ten-and-a-half games as a left midfielder.
“He said it would be like asking a baseball player to step up to the plate and go to the other side and hit him with the left hand. It’s going to be a problem, but I think Jason loves the eagles and saw that a situation where he could help.
“The most important thing is to protect Carson Wentz and keep it healthy. If he can stay healthy and perhaps get back to that MVP form, this team can win the division and do some damage.”
