Pro Bowl tackle Jason Peters, who missed all of training camp and the entire preseason while holding out for a new contract, has informed the team that he is ending his holdout. He is unlikely to play in the season opener against Seattle -- who, ironically, saw their own Pro Bowl tackle, Walter Jones, miss all of training camp for several years in a row before signing a long-term contract in 2005. Jones, however, never missed a game due to any of his holdouts.
