All-Pro offensive tackle Jason Peters is not done with professional football just yet. The 41-year-old player will play his 20th NFL season after agreeing to a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
Peters’ signing with the Seahawks was confirmed by his agent Vincent Taylor, although the financial details of the contract are still unknown.
Considered one of the best-undrafted players in NFL history, Peters spent the majority of his career with the Buffalo Bills and the Philadelphia Eagles. He won the Super Bowl LII with the Eagles and has nine Pro Bowl nods and six All-Pro selections. Peters, who made the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team, played 10 games with the Dallas Cowboys last season.
When he steps on the field for his Seahawks debut, Peters will be the oldest active player in the NFL. He will also be the second-oldest offensive lineman to play in an NFL game since 1950 after guard Ray Brown, who played his last game at the age of 43.
The Seahawks entered the 2023 season with second-year players Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas as their starting tackles. However, both Cross and Lucas were not able to finish the Week 1 loss against the Los Angeles Rams due to injuries. While the expectancy is that the duo won’t miss much time, the Seahawks decided to act quickly and get Peters as insurance.
