Jason Peters – LT

Typically, pursuing a 38-year-old offensive tackle who has a history of missing time due to injury like Jason Peters wouldn’t be a smart decision to make. But when it comes to finding ways to improve their offensive line, the Vikings are likely going to consider every option.

Peters has been in the NFL since 2004 and he spent the last 11 years of his career as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. During his time in the league, he has been voted to the Pro Bowl nine times and he’s earned two First-Team All-Pro selections.

If his asking price doesn’t end up being too high, Peters could be someone Minnesota might consider as their new left tackle. The Vikings have talked about moving Riley Reiff inside to guard and a signing like this would allow them to do that.

Given Peters’ age, it would also allow Minnesota to use an early-round pick on an offensive tackle in this year’s NFL Draft and let him develop on the bench for a season or two. If Peters’ health doesn’t scare the Vikings away, the veteran blocker could be part of the team’s latest attempt at improving their offensive line.
