Bills trade tackle to the Eagles

The Buffalo Bills have agreed to trade left tackle Jason Peters to the Philadelphia Eagles after failing to negotiate a new contract with the disgruntled two-time Pro Bowl selection.


The basics of the deal were agreed to Friday, a person familiar with the trade talks told The Associated Press. The Eagles are attempting to work out undisclosed final details before completing the trade, said the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.

In exchange, the Bills will receive the 28th pick -- the second of the Eagles two first-round picks -- and an undisclosed second-day selection in next week's NFL Draft.

SEAHAWKS: Seattle seems to be sticking by its man.

Team president and general manager Tim Ruskell said he believes franchise quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is still in his prime. The three-time Pro Bowl passer is 33-years-old and coming off a back injury that caused him to miss nine games last season.

That would suggest Seattle will not choose and then pay tens of millions in guarantees to a quarterback with the fourth overall choice it owns in next week's draft.

Ruskell also said the Seahawks' phones aren't buzzing with teams seeking to trade up to obtain the No. 4 pick.

ARRESTED: In Fort Collins, Colo., former Denver Broncos wide receiver Vance Johnson was arrested on violations stemming from two separate court cases.

Court officials say Johnson was arrested Thursday in Fort Collins for failure to appear when he was late showing up for a hearing in Larimer County District Court. Records in that case are sealed and the allegations against him are unknown.
