Peters has appeared three times as a Seahawk offensive tackle. Last Sunday against the Washington Commanders was his third game and he didn’t look out of place. Once again, he proved his skill, as he was effective both as a run blocker and in pass protection. Before playing with the Seahawks, Peters was with the Buffalo Bills for the first five seasons. His next appearance with the Seahawks will be on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Peters was elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on October 29, 2023. Then he was again elevated from the practice squad on November 5, 2023. After two tackles got injured, the Seahawks wanted to sign a veteran player like Peter. This is not the first time they have made a different decision. Previously, they were rumored to approach NBA star LeBron James during NBA lockout.
