Philadelphia, PA (.com) - The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday that the club has signed stud left tackle Jason Peters to a new five-year contract.

The deal, which runs through 2018, is reportedly worth $51.3 million with $19.55 million guaranteed. Peters had one year left on his previous contract.

The 32-year-old Peters returned to Pro Bowl form in 2013, starting all 16 games after missing the entire 2012 season with an Achilles injury. He anchored an offensive line that paved the way for LeSean McCoy, who amassed a franchise-best 1,607 rushing yards.

A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Peters has started all but 10 of the 123 career games in which he has played with the Eagles and Buffalo Bills.
