2019 Off-Season Moves - Offensive Line
Matt Finocchio - Head Writer
It looks like retaining veteran offensive linemen has been a priority for the Eagles heading into the spring. Here are the most notable moves that have been made along the O-Line:
Jason Kelce one-year contract extension – At this stage in his career, Kelce is year-to-year. Many would argue that he was the best center in the league in 2018. In addition to his on-field contributions, he’s a team captain and vocal leader. Birds fans should be thrilled that the Kelce will solidify the O-line and locker room for at least one more year.
Extended Isaac Seumalo, released Stephan Wisniewski – After Seumalo and Wiz tag-teamed the left guard position for most of 2018, the Eagles have decided that Seumalo will fill that role full-time moving forward. With Wisniewski’s departure, the team will be lacking interior line depth; hopefully they can pick up a proven veteran to fill this void before training camp.
Jason Peters signed to one-year contract – With uncertainty about Big V being a full-time starter and Jordan Mailata being a multi-year project, keeping Peters around feels like the safe play. Peters is still a solid starter provided he can stay healthy, though with the way last year went for him, this will almost certainly be his last ride with the Birds.
