The Redskins had discussions with Jason Peters, the Eagles 38-year-old Pro Bowl offensive tackle, who is now a free agent.
However, ESPN reports that a deal is unlikely to happen.
Washington’s front office was recently put under more pressure to trade their own offensive tackle Trent Williams after his agent blasted the organization and demanded an immediate trade or a release. Williams is upset that Washington has been unable to trade him to this point, with the franchise reportedly seeking a second-round pick in return.
Washington granted the seven-time Pro Bowl tackle permission to seek a trade on March 5. Williams grew frustrated with the organization over his contract, sitting out the entire 2019 season, and the situation hasn’t improved under new head coach Ron Rivera. Further complicating any potential deal, Williams is seeking quarterback money in a new contract extension.
