Video: Big V’s Challenge Of Replacing Jason Peters

Eagles second-year tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai has the unenviable job of taking over for probable future Hall of Famer Jason Peters on the Birds offensive line.   Vaitia has his work cut out for him as he takes over at the left tackle position.  I wasn’t sure which position he was going to take, the right […]
