Limited Brent Grimes Jersey NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that despite speculation the Philadelphia Eagles could move on from Jason Peters, he will be back with Philly in 2017.
Peters is set to make $9.5 million in base salary, and his workout bonuses bump that number to $10.7 million. He’s set to count $11.7 million against the Eagles’ salary cap. While there was some discussion about Peters being asked to take a pay cut, it appears he’ll play this season under that number. Philly has cap issues entering the new league year, but the veteran left tackle owned almost all the leverage.

The veteran received interest from four teams (49ers, Seahawks, Falcons and Broncos) following his release from the Dolphins last week.
San Francisco seemed like the best fit for Mitchell as the team employs a 4-3 defense — the same system he played in during his three-season stint in Miami.
The defensive tackle missed half of the 2016 campaign after being placed on injured reserve due to a lingering calf injury.
The Jets are in rebuilding mode, facing a deeper reconstruction than anyone anticipated coming off 2015’s 10-6 finish. Certain to be released by the Bears, Cutler is a patch, but he’d give Gang Green a veteran to build around while Bryce Petty learns the position and Christian Hackenberg learns how to put on shoulder pads. Even if the team is truly “all over” North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky, this isn’t a roster ready to be led by a rookie. Getting late-period Cutler to bridge the gap makes sense — as much sense as Cutler makes anywhere, if he chooses to keep playing.
Tyrod Taylor stays with the Bills: NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported last week that “it is probably a better chance they keep Tyrod now than actually cutting him.”
