Peters assumed the mantle of the NFL’s oldest active player after Tom Brady retired in 2023. The 41-year-old offensive tackle became the league’s elder statesman but he had an amazing journey. The Bills picked him up as an undrafted free agent in 2004. Since then, he’s had a magnificent career including a Super Bowl win with the Eagles.
The nine-time Pro Bowler won’t be around for much longer but he’s given everything to the sport. There’s a reason why Chicago and Dallas offered him short-term deals. They recognized his leadership qualities and experience. This is invaluable because it inspires younger players and improves them too (via Fox Sports).
