That was quick.
Just one day after requesting a restructure of his deal, the Philadelphia Eagles extended their longtime 35-year-old left tackle for another season through 2019.

Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowler that has manned the left tackle spot since being acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Bills in 2009, bounced back last year after having a disappointing 2015 campaign during Chip Kelly’s final season in Philadelphia. Peters had two years left on his original deal and scheduled to make around $10 million per season, but there was no more guaranteed money.
Here’s what he said to reporters prior to the start of Tuesday’s mandatory minicamp.
I don’t want to be year-to-year doubting, are they going to release me? Are they going to do this? Taking pay cuts and all that. I just want to make sure that I got the reassurance that I’m going to retire here, don’t have to worry about it, show up and show out.
One day later, Peters got his wish.
