The bodyguard has been protecting Carson Wentz since 2016, when he was a rookie.
Jason Peters is looking to make an impact in his 18th season. The NFL season is back for another round of the Super Bowl. But the future Hall of Fame left-handed tackle admitted he probably won’t play in a midnight green jersey. Peters spent half of the 2020 season with a broken toe before the team placed him on injured reserve.
Peters won a Super Bowl ring with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, but did not participate in the championship game due to injury. The nine-year professional has played eight games for the Eagles this year, which may have been the worst year of his career. Peters was dropped from the team early in the season and then signed as a free agent to play on the right until an injury to André Dillard forced him to take over at left tackle. The 38-year-old was eventually replaced by news star Jordan Mailata.
The fans deserve better than what we gave them this year. I’m hoping with this new coach and this new team we can bounce back, Peters told 6abc’s Jeff Squersky on Sunday. I will play another year and try to get another ring. He probably won’t be in Philadelphia, unfortunately, but try to pick a team and get another ring.
This could be the end of a great career for Jason Peters, who has not been very good this year. It doesn’t matter to the Eagles.

It was clear Peters would return to training camp when Dillard was put on the list of potential regulars. Although Pederson is gone, it seems the organization should consider bringing him back in 2021.
Jason Peters is not only a great football player, he’s a great Philadelphia Eagle player, former head coach Doug Pederson told reporters at the camp, and I have a lot of respect for a guy like Jason Peters who has played at a high level for so many years. But up front, Andre Dillard was the player we called the left tackle.

Poacher Chief Prince Tega Wanojo of the Eagles
The Eagles sat back and watched as the Kansas City Chiefs intercepted Prince Tegi Wanojo, a newcomer to their coaching staff, this weekend. The former Auburn star was considered a holdover in the draft when Philadelphia caught him in the sixth round.
We have added Evan Baylis and Prince Wanojo to the coaching staff.
Rodney Clemons has been released from the practice squad.
Ricky Seals-Jones was activated by the practice squad.

Kansas City claimed the 6-foot-6, 180-pound player and immediately sent him to the practice squad. The Eagles decided not to sign a risk-free futures contract with Tega Wanogho – or maybe the rookie turned down a return offer – and now he’s gone.
He never started a game in 2020, despite a multitude of injuries along the Eagles’ offensive line. At the end of the year, he was defended several times on the practice squad. Pederson looked stoned, though he never activated it on the player.
Prince is doing very well in practice, Pederson said on the 18th. December to reporters. We haven’t decided if he will be active on game day, but he has done well this year. He’s gotten better. He’s gotten better. He understands everything we do. He is healthy and comfortable. So I’m looking forward to seeing where he goes next and of course what the future holds for him.
