Jason Peters to Philly for their #1 and #4 this year and a 6th next year.
Wow! A 1st and a 4th for a tackle. Not saying it's too much but that is a hefty price. (albeit for a very important position)
The Eagles have two first-round draft picks and would surrender the second, or 28th overall, in the deal for Peters. Initially, one source close to the Eagles said, Buffalo considered making the trade for a first- and third-rounder this year but, in the end, held out for three draft picks to give the Bills more flexibility.
Peters, who has two years left on his contract with Buffalo, had been seeking a long-term deal with the Bills that would average $11.5 million to $12 million a year, sources said. The Bills had been in talks with him since he returned last September from a holdout but had made such little progress that the club recently resolved to consider dealing him.
Sources said the club never had serious offers until late Thursday, when the Eagles approached them about making a deal.
