Nice to know that the front office is still concerned about working their Peters.

Default U mean Howie Stroked his peter!

this has more to do with cap numbers and Peters history of Getting Hurt.. Now he is Signed thru the next 2 season and if they move him to guard, won't be a huge deal.

Read the piece, said he wanted to retire an Eagle, this gives him 2 years and I really doubt he wants to go anywhere else, looks like a win-win to me?

Except they will really need the cap room next season...dude is 35 and led the NFL in false starts. I love Peters, but don't like this extension all that much.

Default He is at the Top of that List with many other Tackles

not sure how many were FS but 11 last year; for a total of 55 yards..strange Numbers Most tackles ahead of him had around 130 yrds in Penalties. Guess the Guy doesn't Hold.

Looks to me that he came to them and said "I'll take that shit you asked me about earlier" and they said ok.

I'm pretty sure they offered something akin to this kind of a restructure earlier (which he could have quantified as a "pay cut" if he wanted to).

According to an article linked below he was to get 20 mil over the next two years with no guaranteed money. They gave him an 8 mil signing bonus and apparently guaranteed another 7 over the new deal.

As I indicated above, seems to me he could have characterized that as a pay cut and rejected it and then asked around about the market for a 35-year old tackle ... reassessed what guaranteed means ... and then decided he always had a burning desire to retire an Eagle.

EDITED TO ADD: Not that I blame him ... business is business.

I sort of agree, but who knows? It is interesting to note that it happened at this point in time. I think that the Eagles got what they would like to accomplish out of this. Peters gets more guaranteed $ so he gets something out of the restructuring as well.

IMO, the most important thing out of all of this to note is that Peters has indicated his willingness to play at guard.

Now we (not they) need to get him a ring.

...Eagles allowing a veteran proven cornerstone player to finish out thier career in midnight green.......I like it.

Even more Peters at 35 is better than 85% than what the rest of league has to offer.

I think they were trying to do it before when he turned it down ... these back-loaded deals are restructured all the time ... particularly with top players who are near the end of their careers.

The player gets guaranteed money ... the team gets the back-loaded salary from the prior deal off the cap and spreads out the guaranteed money.
