WGR 550 in Buffalo has already reported this news as of 1:15 p.m. Friday. Tim Graham and Sal Paolantonio of ESPN have reported that the two teams are close to finalizing a deal.

Graham said the deal would send Peters to Philadelphia for a first- and fourth-round pick in the upcoming 2009 NFL draft and also a conditional pick in the 2010 draft. The first-round pick would be the 28th overall selection.

The Bills already have the 11th overall selection.
