Jason Peters is planning to continue playing football this season.
The former All-Pro is currently 41 years old and looking for a new team.
With Tom Brady finally deciding to retire from football this offseason, there is a new oldest player in the NFL.
Jason Peters currently owns that crown at 41 years old, but it had been unclear whether it was a crown he intended to hold onto.
Peters has gone unsigned since hitting free agency this offseason, but it turns out he doesn’t intend for things to stay that way.
According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, Peters is still planning to play this season.
Nine-time Pro Bowl OT Jason Peters, who is a free agent, said today he still plans to play this season in what would be his 20th NFL season. Peters started his NFL career as an undrafted free agent in 2004 in Buffalo.

Peters has already had a very impressive NFL career over the course of 19 years in the league.
Despite going undrafted back in 2004, Peters needed just 2 seasons to become a regular starter for the Buffalo Bills.
By his fourth year in the league, Peters was a Pro Bowler an All-Pro and earned both honors again in his fifth season.
He was then traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in a deal that sent a 1st rounder and a couple of late round picks to the Bills.
He immediately became a key piece of the Eagles’ roster, anchoring their offensive line. He made the Pro Bowl in 7 of his first 8 years with the Eagles, with the one year he didn’t earn the honor being because he missed the whole season with an injury.
Over the last couple of years, Peters has made a couple of stops around the league after his 11 years with the Philadelphia Eagles came to an end.
He spent the 2021 season with the Chicago Bears, starting 15 games, and then headed to Dallas last season where he became a rotational player for the Cowboys.
Jason Peters played well when called upon by the Cowboys and could be an attractive option for teams with O-line needs this offseason.
