The venerable one

Somehow, the chance to have OT Andrew Whitworth and OT Jason Peters on the same NFL roster seems… right. After all, the fact is that the undrafted class of 2004 Peters and the 55th selected player from the class of 2006 Whitworth would be an amazing pair for any locker room. They’ve been through it all, and have seen it all.

The art of blocking at the left tackle position could certainly be taught by the combination of Andrew Whitworth and Jason Peters, two venerable NFL offensive linemen whose careers have been both decorated and well documented.

The best of Jason Peters’s performance on the football is in the rearview mirror. But he brings a level of play and professionalism that adds value to any offensive line, even if he is on the sidelines merely coaching up the younger players. And as he has gotten older, he has accepted the fact that he moved inside and played alongside a younger offensive tackle.

But he is still has a few tricks up his sleeve. And he is savvy enough to function well enough in this Rams offense, at least well enough to hold down the fort until a younger player is ready to take over. And with a 12 offensive formation, he could hold up for nearly the entire year as the blindside bouncer of the offensive line.
