Jason Peters receives $2 million in lawsuit settlement
Jason Peters was one of, if not the best, Eagles players in 2011. He was arguably even the best left tackle in the entire NFL. He was clearly going to be a critical factor in the Eagles hopes for 2012. But, as we all know by now, that didn't happen.
Instead, Peters suffered an Achilles injury in late March of 2012. Then, as if the initial injury wasn't unfortunate enough, he was re-injured in May when his "Roll-A-Bout" knee walker collapsed. Not only was it a big blow for Peters, but it also left fans even more upset after their original disappointment associated with the first tear. His absence on the field also contributed to the Eagles offensive line's poor performance.

It's nice to see this is all over now. Peters is fully healthy and ready to return to his dominance as one of the league's best LTs in the upcoming season.
