The Eagles started Tuesday with a bang, signing Jason Peters to a one-year deal to play guard.
The deal, which guarantees $3 million and can reach up to $6 million according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Dave Zangaro, is likely a response to the Brandon Brooks injury. But it's relatively cost-friendly, and Peters is a fan favorite, so it's still easy to feel good about the move.
He's also, of course, a locker room favorite, and Eagles players took to social media on Tuesday with an outpouring of excitement as Peters returns for his 12th (!) year in Philadelphia.
The franchise quarterback made it clear he's thrilled to see Peters return:
The 🐐’s back 😎🙌🏻 https://t.co/Klm58yZBTL— Carson Wentz (@cj_wentz) July 14, 2020
Jason Kelce gave his stamp of approval on Instagram:
Peters' return means 2020 will mark the tenth year he and Kelce spend together on the Eagles' O-line. Truly remarkable.
Lane Johnson is, of course, pumped to have his best buddy back:
If Peters does indeed play right guard this year, he and Johnson will line up right next to each other when the Eagles have the ball. What a sight that'll be.
Miles Sanders and Greg Ward Jr. both entered the Eagles' Instagram comments to shout excitedly about the news:
Peters started 13 games last year, helping Sanders run for 800 yards and giving Carson Wentz time to find Ward down field. It's not a surprise that the two second-year players are pumped to have Peters' veteran presence back in the locker room in 2020.
Elsewhere on Instagram, Johnson reiterated his respect for Peters' career, linebacker Nathan Gerry did the same, and fourth-year defensive end Daeshon Hall just sounded thrilled:
Time, and Peters' body, will tell if the move was the right one, but for now things seem pretty rosy in Eagles land.
