3 Teams That Should Sign Jason Peters

Veteran free-agent offensive tackle Jason Peters plans to play in 2023, according to Adam Schefter. Peters is looking to complete his 20th campaign after entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills in 2004. Peters, who made nine Pro Bowls from 2007 to 2016, is still performing at a high level.

Peters briefly played for the Dallas Cowboys last season and proved that he’s still capable of delivering starting-caliber results. He played more than 230 offensive snaps and earned a run-blocking grade of 71.8 from Pro Football Focus. Peters was credited with allowing just one sack in pass protection.

Peters was versatile too, playing both tackle positions and left guard. The aging Peters would be an asset for an offensive line-needy team, of which there are plenty around the league. We’ve swiftly identified three potential fits.


The Jets have big expectations with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback and Dalvin Cook at running back. It would be a shame if poor offensive line play derailed their hopes and dreams. Rodgers is an aging signal-caller that requires top-notch pass protection. Signing Peters would undeniably upgrade the Jets’ offensive line.

Billy Turner is expected to play left tackle. Turner earned a lackluster pass-blocking grade of 50.7 from PFF last season. Fourth-round sophomore Max Mitchell is the projected right tackle after being thrown into the fire at that position as a rookie. Mitchell looked and played like a first-year small schooler. The former Louisiana standout has plenty to prove in year two. Is entrusting an unproven Mitchell a risk the Jets want to take with Rodgers in a closing Super Bowl window?

Mekhi Becton is currently with the team, but the former first-rounder appears to be being dangled as trade bait as the preseason comes to a close. Peters would instantly become the best offensive tackle on the Jets’ roster. That should appeal to Jets general manager Joe Douglas.


The Titans lost starting right tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere to a six-game suspension. Petit-Frere has played sparingly in the preseason and allowed four quarterback pressures on just 13 pass-blocking snaps. Petit-Frere hasn’t proven to be a long-term solution yet, and the candidates who are set to replace him aren’t inspiring much confidence, either.

Veteran journeyman Chris Hubbard may be the favorite but was routinely exposed versus Danielle Hunter and the Minnesota Vikings during joint practices. Second-year undrafted free agent Andrew Rupcich was seen as competition but hasn’t seized the opportunity in the preseason after allowing a team-high six pressures. 

The recently signed Justin Murray may be coming for the job. Murray finally got snaps at right tackle after initially playing right guard and was arguably Tennessee’s best offensive lineman against the Vikings. Peters would represent a better solution than all of these candidates.


An opportunity to end his illustrious career where it began would be poetic for Peters. Linking Peters to Buffalo isn’t just heartwarming, as the Bills desperately require rosterable offensive linemen.

Buffalo’s offensive tackle depth has been decimated. Reserve lineman Brandon Shell recently decided to retire and Tommy Doyle was carted off the field after suffering a season-ending injury. David Quessenberry and Ryan Van Demark aren’t adequate backups for a Super Bowl contender. Peters would immediately contend for snaps.
