Stephen Peterman agrees to deal with Jets, according to report

Leon Halip

The New York Jets have reportedly decided to add former Detroit Lions offensive guard Stephen Peterman.

During the 2013 NFL Draft on Friday night, the New York Jets decided to sign former Detroit Lions offensive guard Stephen Peterman. The two sides agreed to a one-year deal.

Interestingly enough, the Jets actually drafted Kent State offensive guard Brian Winters not too long after the Peterman news came out. Clearly, they don't see Peterman as a long-term option at offensive guard, and they may not even see him as anything more than veteran depth in the short term.

Fittingly, the Lions drafted their replacement for Peterman on Friday night by taking Kentucky offensive guard Larry Warford in the third round. When the Lions released Peterman back in February, it was clear that they needed to get better at right guard, and Warford is now the clear-cut favorite to take over for Peterman in the starting lineup.

Before he was released, Peterman started 86 games at right guard for the Lions from 2006-2012, including every game over the last three seasons.
