PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Who’s going to argue with Jason Peters?
Fresh off of his new contract extension keeping him in Philadelphia through the 2019 season, the nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle sounded optimistic about the Eagles’ future.
“I think it’s good,” Peters told reporters when asked about his chances of winning a Super Bowl in Philadelphia.
“We got a good team this year. Good quarterbacks, good skill positions, good line, good defense. We got a good chance. We just have to put it in place Week 1.”
ESPN’s Mike Clay projects the Eagles to win the NFC East and earn themselves the fourth seed in the NFC Playoffs.
Peters, 35, had another successful season in 2016 starting all 16 games, reaching his ninth Pro Bowl. Head coach Doug Pederson said the possibility of Peters moving to guard at some point is there.
Peters, on the other hand, isn’t so sure.
“I’m not sure,” Peters said when asked about playing guard down the line. “I don’t worry about that. I’m the left tackle right now and that’s what I’ma do.”
