The Philadelphia Eagles have worked out an agreement in principle to acquire Buffalo Bills left tackle Jason Peters, multiple sources have told Sal Paolantonio and Tim Graham of ESPN.com.
For Peters, the Bills will receive a first-round pick (No. 28 overall), a fourth-rounder and an undisclosed pick in 2010. The Eagles asked Peters to fly to Philadelphia so he can meet with the Eagles. The trade would be contingent on Peters passing a physical and might require him to sign a contract extension.
Well, maybe the third pick just lost a little bit of that luster, we talked about yesterday. The Eagles could still trade up, but it’s a lot harder for them when the best asset they have is the 21st selection. And since they would be trading for Baylor tackle Jason Smith, it doesn’t seem to be a fit for them any more. That should keep the ball squarely in the court of teams that specifically want to grab Mark Sanchez before Seattle grabs him at No. 4. Another deal to keep your eye on is Seattle and Kansas City flipping spots if Scott Pioli can convince the Seahawks a deal with the Jets or Broncos is imminent. That would allow the Chiefs to still get a top pick or trade down again.
