Report: Bills, Peters still far apart


The Buffalo Bills and offensive tackle Jason Peters are still far apart on a new contract, according to Allen Wilson of The Buffalo News.

Reporters from both the Daily News and The Inquirer have written about Philadelphia as a possible landing spot for Peters should the Bills decide to trade him.

"Obviously, Jason is a tremendous football player and we would like to have Jason as a cornerstone for many years to come. But it takes two to come together," Bills Chief Operating Officer Russ Brandon told The Buffalo News. "We spoke to Jason at the conclusion of the season. He knows how much he means to us. Hopefully we can make some headway here in the oncoming weeks."

Peters has two years left on his contract, but wants to be the highest-paid left tackle in the NFL, per Wilson.

Brandon did not want to comment on the possibility of trading Peters.

"That's another issue that is too early to discuss," Brandon said. "Our focus is on trying to come together on some kind of arrangement with Jason."


A couple things I'm going to be mentioning in pretty much every post for the next month or so. If you're a loyal reader, I apologize for the repetition.

Number one, I've set up a category for all my NFL draft posts. If you've been paying attention, we've interviewed Scott Wright of every week for some time now, and he's done a great job providing answers and insight. Now you can get to all those posts just by clicking here. I'll include the link in the right rail over by that flattering photo, and will also have an NFL Draft page in the next week or so.

And last but not least, Moving the Chains is on Twitter. The account will update with anything new I write. We've already exceeded my goal of eight followers, so anything from here on out is gravy. Click here to join the club.

C'mon. Everyone's doing it.
