THE EAGLES set team records for points, yards, passing yards and touchdowns as they won the NFC East title in 2013. In Chip Kelly's new offense, LeSean McCoy set team records for rushing yards and total yards from scrimmage. DeSean Jackson had the best season of his six in the NFL. Nick Foles ascended from anonymity to MVP of the Pro Bowl. None of that would have happened without Jason Peters. Lost amid the gaudy numbers and the Chippah hype, Peters, in his 10th season, showed little effect from his disadvantages.

Jason Peters was absent as the Eagles opened their third week of organized team activities on Tuesday. OTAs are voluntary, but coach Chip Kelly has mostly had full attendance during the first two weeks of workouts. Peters, along with several other Eagles, missed last Monday's practice because of travel delays. The Eagles had no explanation for Tuesday's absence, though. "He's just not here," a team spokesman said. Peters is returning from a ruptured Achilles tendon that caused him to miss all of last season.

Jason Peters returned to practice Saturday for the first time in two weeks, a span that included two missed preseason games because of a hamstring injury. The injury was not serious, but the team was cautious with the five-time Pro Bowl left tackle, who missed all of last season with a twice-ruptured Achilles tendon. Barring a setback, Peters is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "I'm suiting up this week," Peters said. "I'm getting out there and getting some good work in against Jacksonville and get ready for Washington.

IT DIDN'T sound as if Jason Peters was going to be contributing any of the $8 million or so he is scheduled to earn this year to a Kickstarter campaign aimed at getting Evan Mathis back in the fold. "Not really," Peters said, when asked if it mattered to him whether Mathis lines up next to him at left guard this season. Peters, the Eagles' seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle, noted he has played alongside quite a few left guards over the years. "It's Al, right now," Peters said, indicating Allen Barbre, who has subbed for Mathis while the two-time Pro Bowler sits out OTAs, Mathis unhappy with his contract.

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was charged early Wednesday morning with speeding and resisting a police officer by flight in Monroe, La., police told the Monroe News-Star. Peters, driving a white Camaro, was racing a blue sedan about 4:45 a.m. when a police deputy attempted to pull over the vehicles, according to the report, which cited an arrest affidavit. The sedan pulled over, but Peters kept driving and exceeded 100 m.p.h. in the pursuit, police said. Peters eventually pulled over and complied with police when they told him to get out of his car. He was handcuffed, arrested, and charged.

Jason Peters watched the NFC divisional playoff game with his family in Texas. He was not happy to be watching it because he felt the Eagles were good enough to be playing in the game at Green Bay. The veteran offensive tackle was still not over the fact that his team had let a 9-3 start dissolve into a disastrous ending that included three straight losses to Seattle, Dallas, and Washington. "I felt like if we had made the playoffs we could have contended for the ring," Peters said last week after a long and hot Eagles workout.

The line could come back to haunt a head coach - or make him look like a genius. The Eagles had just acquired Jason Peters in a trade with the Buffalo Bills for three draft picks, including a 2009 first-rounder, and given the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle a six-year contract worth more than $60 million. Those two actions alone provided a good idea as to what Andy Reid thought about Peters, but the Eagles' coach also put his feelings into words. Reid said that after studying tape of Peters he "came out feeling that he was the best left tackle in football.

The increasing number of questions about Jason Peters' return is all one needs to know about the state of the Eagles' left tackle situation and the offensive line in general. On the day he officially announced King Dunlap's return to the starting lineup, Eagles coach Andy Reid fielded as many questions about Peters as he did his current left tackle. "There's a chance," Reid said of the injured Peters' playing this season. The fact is that Reid won't have to worry about a Peters return if Dunlap or the rest of the offensive line can't improve enough for the Eagles to have a realistic shot at the playoffs by the time Peters is eligible to play.

YOU KNOW what would be cool? If a coach started a news conference by listing injuries, before reporters even asked about them. Yup, that'd really be something. There must be coaches out there who do that, right? Though no one comes immediately to mind. Chip Kelly is not such a coach. Asked yesterday about the absences of All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters and recent safety acquisition Kenny Phillips from his practice session, Kelly was not in a mood to provide details. Peters just isn't around, and wasn't around last week, either, it turns out. Initially the Eagles said Peters was among a group of players who missed the May 20 workout - which reporters were allowed to watch - but the team said everyone in that group practiced the next day, when reporters were not present.

TWO YEARS AGO, before he ruptured his right Achilles' tendon twice in a 7-week period, Jason Peters was the best left tackle in the NFL. You can debate who might've been the best quarterback or the best running back or best wide receiver or the best pass-rusher in the league in 2011. But there's no debate about who was the best left tackle. There was Peters and then there was everybody else. He was that good. An athletic freak with running-back feet inside a massive 6-4, 340-pound body.

Sam Bradford wanted to take a hit Saturday night. The Eagles quarterback never could have imagined the first one he withstood. On the sixth snap of Bradford's only drive in the Eagles' 40-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens, Bradford handed the ball to Darren Sproles. After the handoff, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs lunged into the left knee of an unsuspecting Bradford. It was the same knee that required two surgeries and is the biggest variable in the Eagles season. "You would have to ask him, but I think that's what he was trying to do," Bradford said.

THE COMPETITION for the third outside linebacker position got a little more interesting yesterday, as defensive coordinator Bill Davis told reporters that Marcus Smith, who left Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury, will be out for tonight's preseason game with the Baltimore Ravens. Smith, the Eagles first-round draft pick in 2014, wore a black sleeve on his right leg during yesterday's practice, which he did not participate in. He told reporters he will be out for "two to three weeks.

JASON PETERS showed up for Eagles training camp with a new body and a renewed determination to prove that, at 33, he still is one of the two or three best left tackles in football. The seven-time Pro Bowler weighs 320 pounds, which is the lightest he's been since making the switch from tight end to offensive tackle in his second NFL season. That's about 25 pounds below what he played at last season. "Three forty-five is what I've always played at," Peters said. "Since my first year starting at offensive line.

There are three doors, and the Eagles will walk through one of them this season. You don't need Monty Hall to tell you that not all doors are created equal, but that is the nature of a boom-or-bust season so reliant on things that are still uncertain. Chip Kelly remade a large portion of the roster after deciding the 2014 team "wasn't close" to good enough to compete for a championship. In doing so, he removed almost all of the last vestiges of Good King Andy (and Howie Roseman, to some extent)

THE EAGLES are looking at breaking in 11 new members among their regular starting 22 from a year ago. Some of the positions were expected to turn over, such as right guard and the cornerbacks. Others, like quarterback and running back, are the wondrous byproducts hatched in Chip Kelly's offseason laboratory. (Cue the evil scientist's ghoulish laughter.) Here then is a look at Dr. Chip's experiments heading into his third training camp as Eagles coach, and first with him in sole control of the roster: Offense Quarterback Gone: Nick Foles, traded to the Rams.

The questions on the Eagles' offensive line were not supposed to include the starters on the left side, where tackle Jason Peters and guard Evan Mathis are both Pro Bowl players. But Mathis has not reported for the Eagles' offseason program and Peters is proceeding as if Allen Barbre - not Mathis - will play next to him this season. "It's Al right now and that's who we're rolling with," Peters said. "Right now, if we had to play, Al would be the starter. " Mathis, who is unhappy with his contract, would be subject to a fine if he misses the mandatory minicamp next week.

THE EAGLES' story lines this spring are all about gambles. Chip Kelly is gambling on Sam Bradford's left knee and DeMarco Murray's durability and Jordan Matthews' upside and his own ability to oversee not just the execution of X's-and-O's, but the selections of Jimmys and Joes. The biggest gamble, though, might be where he has chosen not to wager, and not to upgrade. There are no significant additions this spring to an Eagles offensive line that got pretty banged up a year ago and struggled even when intact, an offensive line that clearly did not live up to its billing as a team strength when last season began.

IN THE entire Delaware Valley, Allen Barbre, Matt Tobin and Andrew Gardner might have been the three guys happiest with the Eagles' 2015 draft, when it wrapped up Saturday evening. Barbre is the journeyman guard who was penciled in as Todd Herremans' replacement when the team's longest-serving offensive lineman was sent packing in February. Barbre will turn 31 next month. Tobin and Gardner are the top backups who were pressed into service last season, when injuries decimated the o-line.
