tackle Jason Peters was named to the 2008 NFL Pro Bowl.
Peters will make his first Pro Bowl appearance on February 10th at Aloha
Stadium in Honolulu, HI.
Peters, 25, has started the last 39 games for the Buffalo Bills as a
tackle - including the last 23 at left tackle.
This season, Peters anchors an offensive line that has started all 14
games of the 2007 season. Peters along with, center Melvin Fowler, left
guard Derrick Dockery, right guard Brad Butler and right tackle Langston
Walker make up the first Bills offensive line to start 14 consecutive
games since 1989. The Bills are also one of five NFL teams this season
to start the same offensive line in all 14 games.
The unit has not allowed a sack in the last three games, which ties a
team record for the longest streak without allowing a sack. It's the
longest streak since games 2-4 in 1981.
Peters is in his fourth NFL season. He joined the Bills as an undrafted
free agent on April 26, 2004 from Arkansas. In 2004 and the first seven
games of 2005, Peters played tight end and contributed on special teams.
On December 19, 2004 at Cincinnati, Peters scored his first career
touchdown when he blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone.
On September 11, 2005, Peters caught his first touchdown pass against
the Houtston Texans. He made his debut at right tackle on October 30,
2005 at New England.
In the middle of 2006, Peters was moved to left tackle and made his
debut on November 5, 2006 vs. Green Bay. He has started every game since
at the left tackle position.
Peters is the 14th Bills offensive lineman to be selected for the Pro
Bowl and the first since Ruben Brown in 2003.
Peters is a native of Queen City, TX.
