Despite a report this month that the Eagles asked left tackle Jason Peters to take a pay cut, he’ll be sticking around on his current contract. The Eagles have decided to bring Peters back without a pay cut, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Peters’ base salary will be $10.45 million and he can also earn a workout bonus of $250,000.

Philadelphia Eagles director of public relations Derek Boyko has been hired by the Bills to be Buffalo’s new vice president of communications, according to an official announcement. This is a big loss for the Eagles. Derek had been with the organization for 17 years. He did a great job as the team’s head PR guy. Speaking from personal experience, he was very approachable and willing to help with anything I ever needed.

BGN wouldn’t fully be what it is today without his assistance. Not only is Derek a true professional, but he’s also just a great guy.
