"It means a lot", Peters told the team's web site before Wednesday's minicamp practice at the NovaCare Complex.
There is a good chance that this will be the last contract for Peters, who said on Tuesday that he wanted to retire with the Eagles and have that security as his career winds down. The Eagles went 5-1 with Johnson at right tackle, meaning they were 2-8 in the other games. He is now due $32.5 million, of which $15.5 million is guaranteed, over the next three seasons in Philly. He spent his first five seasons with the Buffalo Bills before he was traded to Philadelphia in 2008.
Although Pederson wouldn't commit to Peters playing left tackle past this coming season, it's clear enough now that the Eagles aren't ready to have right tackle Lane Johnson, Peters' successor, moved over just yet. The lone exception would be the 2012 season, when Peters sustained a ruptured Achilles tendon in March of that year.
"Jason is a future Hall of Famer, a great player, and leader", Howie Roseman said.

Peters' new deal comes one day after he said that his absence from the voluntary OTAs this offseason was partially driven by his unhappiness about his contract situation and desire for assurances from the organization that he would be able to ultimately one day retire as an Eagle. Johnson has two starts at left tackle.
Doug Pederson had a rough start to his career as an National Football League head coach last summer.
Asked if he knew what his salary cap charge was going to be, Peters said: "I don't know, man. To have those anchors on the edges gives you more comfort as a pocket passer and someone that can just take advantage of those guys being the core of your offensive line".
Peters, 6-foot-4 and 328 pounds, has been bothered by nagging back and leg injuries in recent years.
The Eagles seem to be well on their way of rivaling the Dallas Cowboys and potentially winning the NFC East this upcoming season. Peters has since joined the team for the mandatory workouts and has stepped right in to help fill the giant void he left on the right side of the offensive line.
