Jason Peters Ruptures Achilles Tendon (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/30/jason-peters-suffers-ruptured-achilles-tendon/)

Man, this is huge for Philly. It has to be disheartening to lose your starting LT even before the OTAs work start. This is usually the time of year guys get healthy, not injured and maybe lost for the year.

Yeah, that is a season-ending injury there - no playing in 2012.

If he can play tackle, DMc5 can be had for the vet minimum.

I just saw that Demetrius Bell is going to visit Philly. If he signs with them and not us, I have to think the Cap Penalty is hurting us much more than people want to admit. We were talking to Evan Mathis and never got him to visit, we haven't signed London, Aaron Ross was allowed to leave without a contract, and Demetrius himself was allowed to walk.

I am not saying we would have signed all those guys if we had the money, I know there are other varying factors but I know a lack of cap cash contributed to at least one if not more.
