41-year-old future HOF OT joining Seahawks

Future Hall of Fame offensive tackle Jason Peters is joining the Seattle Seahawks for his 20th NFL season.

If the 41-year-old plays in a game for head coach Pete Carroll’s club, it’ll be the fifth team Peters has suited up for.

The nine-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro said in August that he was planning to play during the 2023 campaign, retaining his title as the oldest player in the league. Peters earned the distinction when Tom Brady announced his second retirement on Feb. 1.

According to a report by Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic, if Peters takes the field for a game with his new squad, he’ll be the second-oldest offensive lineman to make an appearance since at least 1950, per Stathead. Washington’s Ray Brown holds that record at 43 years and 20 days old.

It was reported by Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in February that the tackle’s 2022 team (the Dallas Cowboys) expected him to be back for the 2023 campaign. The Cowboys, however, didn’t end up re-signing Peters after he played 11 games and made two starts (including the playoffs) with Big D.

The longtime Philadelphia Eagles star played only 235 regular season snaps last year but wasn’t called for any penalties.

The addition of Peters comes as Seattle is reportedly “a little concerned” about the status of starting offensive tackles Abraham Lucas and Charles Cross.

Peters — who is sixth among active players in games played (238) and fifth in games started (219) — moved to right tackle last season after spending well over a decade primarily as a left tackle.
