Potential NFL trades that make too much sense

6. Philadelphia Eagles trade Jason Peters to the Seattle Seahawks

With Lane Johnson etched in stone as the Eagles’ future left tackle, it makes absolutely no sense for them to keep Peters on at a $11.2 million cap hit for the 2017 season. That’s why Philadelphia’s brass has been attempting to work out a contract restructure with the nine-time Pro Bowler. Should that not come to fruition, the 13-year veteran will likely be traded or released.

Despite his advanced age, Peters still put up a Pro Bowl performance for Philadelphia last season. He has the ability to act as a short-term fix at left tackle.

Enter into the equation a Seahawks team that needs to add at least two starter-caliber offensive linemen to the mix this offseason. Simply put, this unit was an absolute disaster in pass protection in front of Russell Wilson last season.

Peters would solidify the left side of the line and would likely come cheap in terms of draft pick compensation. If the potential future Hall of Famer were then to agree to a pay cut, this could very well work for both sides.
