">Jeff Skversky of WPVI that Eagles fans deserve more than what they were given this year, but he doesn't expect to return to Philadelphia next season. The 2021 season will be his 18th and final NFL season -- and he wants to make the most of it.
“I’m going to play one more year and try to get me another ring,” Peters said. “It probably won’t be in Philly. Unfortunate, but try to choose a team and try to get another ring.”
After what looked like his final year with the Eagles in 2019, Jason Peters rejoined Philadelphia for the 17th season of his long NFL career. An injury to guard Brandon Brooks landed Peters a spot on the 2020 roster -- setting him up to start on the right side. But, another O-line injury for Andre Dillard saw Peters move back to his left tackle position.
With a newly-structured, one-year LT contract just under his belt, Peters suffered an injury of his own. A foot injury placed him on the IR for about a month in October, then ended his season mid December.
The Super Bowl LII champion will now look for a new team in hopes of earning a second ring.
