Jason Peters: “I’m Going to Keep Playing”
Jason Peters, who will be 38 on Jan. 22, doesn't have a contract for next season, but he says he still plans on playing.
Telling our Geoff Mosher: "I'm going to keep playing."
Peters is a free agent, and the Eagles went and drafted Andre Dillard in the first-round of this years draft, with the thought he would take over for Peters at left tackle. However, it doesn't sound Peters is ready to hang em up just yet.
"If I couldn't do it no more, I'd walk away from the game," Peters continued. "But I can still go, I can still play tackle. I went against some of the best rushers this year, I think I gave up three sacks all year. "
Peters did acknowledge this off-sides penalties being an issue, and said "that's on me".
When Mosher followed up, asking Peters if he plans to play next year, Peters responded: "yes."
He went on to say, "If you want it to be the end for me, you got another thing coming, I've got juice in the tank.
According to reports, there has been no contact between Peters and the team.
Peters said he would like to play another year, or two, regardless if it was on Philadelphia or someplace else.
“You don’t want to put yourself in a box because if they don’t want you any more, that’s just part of the business," Peters said. "I definitely want to come back and play.”
He is a nine time Pro Bowler, two-time first-team and four-time second-team All Pro since he was drafted in 2004.
