Bills LT Peters Skips Minicamp in Protest of a New Deal


It’s a well known fact that left tackle Jason Peters is looking for a new deal from the Bills, and that fact became more evident today when the 340 pounder skipped the first of three mandatory minicamp practices the team held.  Peters was a starter in the Pro Bowl, and despite three years left on his current deal, he wants to tear that up and get a new contract.

Peters is the third-highest paid OL on the team, and is set to make about $4 mil this season.  Right now on the Bills left guard Derrick Dockery makes an average of $7 million a year, and right tackle Langston Walker makes an average of $5 million a year.

The Buffalo News reports that Peters may want to make as much as or more than Jets guard Alan Faneca, who signed a deal this offseason that will make him more than $8 mil this season.  The Bills could fine Peters about $25,000 if he misses the entire three-day camp.
