Found May 31, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie says that he’s not worried about offensive lineman Jason Peters skipping their voluntary organized team activities. “Jason’s great. Jason’s really in great shape. He’s got his own personal reasons that he can’t be here, and I actually empathize with him,” Lurie said.   That would seem to indicate Peters isn’t just blowing off the voluntary work because he can, or because he’s angry about the contract adjustment he endured last year when Peters missed the season after two Achilles’ surgeries. The Eagles placed him on the nonfootball injury list, causing Peters to forfeit about $3.25 million.   Another Eagles source confirmed that the coaching staff is not upset or concerned about Peters’ absence. It certainly sounds like he has a good reason to be absent.     Need NFL Tickets? The post Eagles’ Jason Peters skipped OTA’s for personal reasons appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
