The Philadelphia Eagles and Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters have come to an agreement on a new contract extension. In other news around the NFL concerning contracts, both Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Dontari Poe and Seattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy have hit the weight incentives in their contracts to earn massive bonuses.

Jason Peters' extension

The Philadelphia Eagles and Jason Peters have agreed to a one-year extension of his current contract that keeps him with the team and protecting Carson Wentz until 2019. Peters' new contract is for $32.5 million over the next three seasons, with $15.5 million of that being guaranteed money.

He was happy about the decision and acknowledged that part of the reason he skipped voluntary OTAs earlier this spring was because of his contract situation.

Jason Peters spent his first five seasons in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills after he was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas to play tight end. The Eagles acquired Peters in a trade in 2009, and since then, he has been the anchor for the team at the left tackle position. Peters missed the whole 2012 season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, but has since played in 62 of a possible 64 games. He is a nine-time Pro Bowler, a two-time First Team AP All-Pro, and a four-time Second Team AP All-Pro.

Poe makes weight

Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Dontari Poe announced that he had reached his required weight of 340 pounds or less by the start of the team's mandatory minicamp yesterday.

Since Poe reached the goal he triggered a reward clause in his contract, meaning that he can collect his $125,000 bonus. When Poe signed a one-year, $8 million dollar contract this offseason it came with $7.5 million being fully guaranteed. The last $500,000 required him to make weight at four different points, each worth $125,000.

The next three come during training camp at the end of July, September 4th, and November 6th.

Eddie Lacy passes his second weigh-in

Dontari Poe is not the only NFL player with such a clause in his contract, as Seattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy also has weigh-in bonuses. Eddie Lacy passed his second weigh-in by coming in at less than 250 pounds.

This meant that he earned the second weigh incentive in his contract, giving him a bonus of $55,000 dollars. Lacy has a total of $385,000 tied to him passing seven weigh-ins throughout the season, two of which he has already passed.
