But maybe they acquired Peters for his run-blocking skills - since when it comes to pass-blocking, he obviously can't block a striped box in the middle of an intersection?
So, you don't think the fact that he held out the entirety of training camp and was not in shape until the third game of the year played any role in that? You don't think the fact that he really did not want to be there due to not getting the contract he wanted played any role in that whatsoever?

The guy can pass block he gave up just two sacks the year before. His play last season has more to do with the fact that he did not get the money he wanted. Now that he is getting that money from Philadelphia expect him to be a Pro Bowl caliber lineman. After all a happy worker is a productive worker.
