SEATTLE – The Seahawks are signing 41-year-old Jason Peters, according to Elite Loyalty Sports, the agency that represents him.

A source told ESPN that Peters will sign with the Seahawks’ practice squad. Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro, is in his 20th season.

The addition of Peters comes amid uncertainty over the severity of injuries that knocked both Seattle’s starting tackles out of the team’s season-opening loss. Right tackle Abraham Lucas missed the second half with a kneecap injury, something that also bothered him during training camp. Left tackle Charles Cross left in the third quarter with a sprained big toe.

Neither returned, forcing the Seahawks to end the game with Jake Curhan and Stone Forsythe, two third-year players who were not full-time starters.

Seattle’s only other offensive tackle is Greg Eiland, who was just re-signed to the practice squad.

Peters spent his first five seasons with the Buffalo Bills, then played for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2009 to 2020. He appeared in 10 games last season with the Dallas Cowboys, where he started once, after starting 15 games for the Chicago Bears in Year 2021.
