Eagles sign Jason Peters to one-year deal to play guard

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed future Hall of Famer Jason Peters. It is a one-year deal for the 2020 season.

Peters will make $3 million in guaranteed money. He could potentially make up to $6 million for the entire season if he reaches incentives.

He returns to the Eagles after the team elected not to re-sign him in the off-season. Instead of playing left tackle, Peters will switch to play guard for the upcoming season.

Previously, Brandon Brooks suffered a season-ending injury. This opened the door for the Eagles to sign Peters, which they did on Tuesday.

Before Brooks suffered the injury, there was lukewarm interest for the 38-year-old.

According to ESPN, the Eagles are confident that Peters can make the transition. He had played for the Eagles the last 11 seasons — as their starting left tackle.

When the team elected to move on from Peters, the team turned their left tackle position over to Andre Dillard. He was the team’s first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

He is projected to start at the position unless something happens, like an injury. Dillard did have four starts at the position as a rookie, but he did not perform the way the team had hoped, because his performance was up-and-down at best.

With Peters back in the fold, the starting lineup is expected to look like this:

  • LT Andre Dillard
  • LG Isaac Seumalo
  • C Jason Kelce
  • RG Jason Peters
  • Lane Johnson
