The final place for Tampa Bay to find an offensive tackle to protect Tom Brady is through free agency and Jason Peters is the best free-agent tackle for the Buccaneers to sign.

In the grand scheme of things, Peters is too old to get a long contact at 38 years old, but the Bucs could bring him in for a year or two as a veteran option to protect Brady at a higher level than Demar Dotson.

This is another option that could be better paired with a rookie as a future option, but Peters was one of the best tackles in the NFL in 2019 and that can’t be overlooked.

The Buccaneers have to provide Tom Brady with protection and Jason Peters has the experience and talent to provide that at a very high level.

Jason Peters has experienced it all, making appearances in the Pro Bowl, the All-Pro teams, and even won a Super Bowl with the Eagles against Tom Brady in 2018.

The playoff experience especially would come in handy on a team that is looking to return to the playoffs and while Tom Brady does bring that, Jason Peters would help take the offensive line to new heights.

In this situation, Peters would be cheaper than Trent Williams and would probably be around the same price or cheaper than a rookie signing. In the end, all that matters is protecting Tom Brady, and that is something that Jason Peters can do as well as anyone.
