Lost in the the excitement of Terrell Owens signing with the Bills is the fact that the team still hasn’t signed the man who will give Trent Edwards enough time to throw the ball in T.O.’s direction. The Buffalo News reports that left tackle Jason Peters and the team have yet to agree on a long-term contract, and the difference in their offers could be as much as $3 million per year.
It’s believed Peters wants to be the highest-paid left tackle in the NFL. Neither the Bills nor Peters’ agent, Eugene Parker, are commenting on negotiations. However, a source familiar with talks said Peters’ first offer was in excess of the $11.5 million-a-year deal signed by Miami’s Jake Long, who was the first pick in the draft last year. Long’s deal was for five years and $57.5 million.
