The Seattle Seahawks have strengthened their offensive line via the practice squad for Sunday’s battle with the Baltimore Ravens. The Seahawks have elevated 41-year-old left tackle Jason Peters to the active roster, per NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Peters debuted with the Seattle Seahawks last weekend, playing 26 offensive snaps. Seattle took down the Cleveland Browns 24-20.
Jason Peters: NFL Career
Jason Peters is the oldest active NFL player at 41 years old. Originally an undrafted free agent in 2004, Peters played his first five seasons with the Buffalo Bills. He earned two Pro Bowl nods and two All-Pro Awards before darting for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. Peters is most notable for his excellent 12-year stint with the Eagles, helping win Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots in 2017.
Peters, a member of the NFL’s 2010s All-Decade Team, signed with the Chicago Bears in 2021, playing in 15 games before joining the Dallas Cowboys in 2022. The Arkansas product started the 2023 campaign without a team but inked a deal with the Seattle Seahawks in early September after the team suffered injuries on the offensive line.
Seattle Seahawks: Offensive Line Troubles
The Seahawks have had to deal with offensive line issues this season. Starting tackle Abraham Lucas sits on the injured reserve (IR), while Charles Cross also missed time. Depth at the tackle position is thin, with practice squad signee Raiqwon O’Neal backing up Cross. Sixth-round pick Stone Forsythe plays the other tackle position. The Seahawks also operate with two rookies as depth pieces on the interior.
