Jason Peters' time with the Philadelphia Eagles is likely over, but the 39-year-old offensive lineman believes that he can still make an impact in the NFL.
A nine-time Pro Bowler, Peters explained what he can bring to a franchise at this stage of his career.
"I don't know about 'a whole lot,' but I still got some in the tank, and I can definitely show some of the young guys how to play the game of football," Peters said on Good Morning Football. "You can know the Xs and Os, but I'm gonna be the one to stay with 'em after practice and show 'em how to really play the game, the technique, and the things about the detail of the football game throughout the course of the season."
If Peters is to continue his NFL career, it will almost certainly not be with the Eagles, the team he's spent the last 12 seasons with. The Eagles are rebuilding, $43 million over the cap and owe it to themselves to figure out what they have in Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard.
Could Peters bring value to another team? In 2020, Pro Football Focus graded him as the 48th best offensive tackle in the NFL, grading him at 67.6 out of 100. He was limited to eight games, and has regularly had to be removed from those that he's played in over the past few seasons. Perhaps a team will be intrigued by the possibility of him playing as a guard, but the feeling here is that the two-time All-Pro's career may very well be over.
