Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters will enter the free-agent market at age 38.

The team released a statement Thursday saying it had reached a mutual agreement to let the nine-time Pro Bowl selection test the waters when the new league year begins March 18.

“We are appreciative of everything Jason has contributed to the organization over the last 11 seasons in Philadelphia, including building a first-ballot Hall of Fame career and helping us win our first Super Bowl championship,” the Eagles posted to Twitter.

“Jason has been an incredible leader and person both on and off the field. We will remain in communication as each side continues to evaluate its options in free agency.”

Although the Eagles opted not to use a franchise tag or sign Peters to a long-term deal, it doesn’t mean his time in Philadelphia is over.

“Heck yeah,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson told NBC Sports Philadelphia when asked if he wanted Peters back in 2020.

Peters started 13 games in 2019, his 16th season in the NFL. He signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract last March.

One of the most successful undrafted players in league history, he has appeared in 205 games (195 starts) with the Buffalo Bills (2004-08) and Eagles. He earned First Team All-Pro honors in 2011 and 2013.
