The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to mutually part ways with future Hall of Famer Jason Peters. He will now hit the open market immediately.

Peters spent the majority of his career with the Eagles. In fact, he was with the franchise for 11 years.

“We are appreciative of everything Jason has contributed to the organization over the last 11 seasons in Philadelphia, including building a first-ballot Hall of Fame career and helping us win our first Super Bowl Championship,” the team said in a statement. “Jason has been an incredible leader and person, both on and off the field. We will remain in communication as each side continues to evaluate its options in free agency.”

Peters came to Philadelphia following a trade with the Buffalo Bills on April 20, 2009. He was acquired for a first-round pick and a fourth-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.

The Bills used the first-round pick on Eric Wood, while they used the fourth-round draft pick on Shawn Nelson.

With the Eagles, he appeared in 140 games. He started every one of those games.

The Bowie County, Texas native also saved the team twice from losing the ball, as he had two fumble recoveries.

He played five seasons with the Bills. Now, instead of waiting to be a free agent, he can talk to teams and may choose to sign before the new league-year on March 18th.

Peters appeared in 205 games in his career with the Eagles and the Bills. He made 195 starts. The 10 games he missed were with the Bills.
