Bills Trade LT Peters to Philadelphia

The Bills have moved unhappy left tackle Jason Peters, moving him for the 28th overall pick in next Saturday’s draft to the Philadelphia Eagles. The team decided that trying to wait to see if Peters would hold out of another training camp or not was not worth it, and instead moved the Pro Bowl LT.

Peters wanted a new deal, as he was scheduled to make a base salary of $7.2 million over the final two years of his contract, and he wanted a lot more than that.

The Eagles are getting a 6-foot-4 and 328 pound tackle and a guy that was able to find his way to a pair of Pro Bowls the last two seasons. Now they will use their newly acquired pick to maybe find his replacement.

    Brilliant move. The Bills got three picks for a UFA who played well for one season. His attitude is terrible, and I feel like the coaches like their OL, especially D.Bell and a few rookies to rotate in.

    I would like them to keep Roscoe Parrish unless they can get a unbelievable deal for him. They just need to throw to him more. Josh Reed is a great route runner, Edwards trusts him, fine, Parrish can take it to the house. Roscoe needs to woe the coaches and so long as we get at least a top three round pick, that will be fine. We’re flush at WR like we were at DB last year, a good thing, James Hardy needs to show me something this year, I hope that’s not a bust. Stevie Johnson is excellent. The Bills have done a great job with developing from within.
