Peters spend the final 12 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, the place he grew to become the most effective left tackles within the league. He made seven Professional Bowls and was a six-time All-Professional (two first, 4 second) with the Eagles, after making the Professional Bowl twice in 5 seasons with the Payments at first of his profession. 

When requested if Peters was becoming a member of the group as a backup, Bears coach Matt Nagy was definitive: “No. He is coming in right here to compete to be the left deal with.”

Peters’ play dropped off as he obtained deeper and deeper into his 30s (he performed final season at age 38) and during the last a number of years he started experiencing harm points as properly. After averaging 13 video games per season from 2009 by way of 2016, Peters performed simply 44 of 64 potential video games from 2017 by way of 2020. 

The Bears waived their very own longtime beginning left deal with, Charles Leno, earlier this offseason, seemingly to make room for second-round choose Teven Jenkins within the lineup. Jenkins, who performed on the proper facet throughout his school profession, has as an alternative been sidelined for all of coaching camp with a again harm. 

Signing Peters offers Chicago a veteran possibility on the left facet of the road in case Jenkins can’t get again on the sphere shortly, and a pleasant safety blanket for Fields at any time when he steps into the lineup instead of Andy Dalton
