San Diego Chargers

Peelle began his professional career in 2002, when he was a fourth-round selection (103rd overall) by the San Diego Chargers and their general manager John Butler in the 2002 NFL Draft. He played in 15 games his rookie season, including two starts. On the year, he caught three passes for 15 yards. Peelle was also fifth on the squad with seven tackles on special teams. His first NFL reception came on a two-yard pass from quarterback Drew Brees against the San Francisco 49ers on November 17.

Peelle started nine of the 15 games in which he appeared in 2003. He tallied a career-high 16 receptions for 133 yards on the season, and had one touchdown catch on the year. Peelle also contributed two tackles on special teams. He posted a career-high four catches, totaling 24 yards, against the Baltimore Ravens on September 21. His lone scoring catch of the year came on a seven-yard grab from Brees in the back of the end zone the following week at the Oakland Raiders, marking his first NFL touchdown reception. He was inactive for game at the Detroit Lions on December 7 with a concussion sustained the previous week against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Peelle started four of 16 contests in which he appeared in 2004. He totaled 10 receptions for 84 yards and a pair of scores on the season and recorded four stops on special teams. His first reception of season came on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Brees in 38-17 win over the Tennessee Titans on October 3. Peelle tallied his longest scoring reception of his NFL career in a 42-14 victory over the Raiders on October 31 with a 17-yard grab from Brees.

The Miami Dolphins signed Peelle as an unrestricted free agent on March 20, 2006. Peelle signed a three-year deal with the team which included base salaries of $600,000 (2006), $1.2 million (2007), and $1.3 million (2008).

Peelle appeared in 15 games for the Dolphins in 2006, including a career-high ten starts. This was due to the team's increased use of two-tight end sets, which created more time for Peelle and less for fullback Darian Barnes. He finished with 16 catches for 116 yards and one touchdown on the season, marking the fourth consecutive season he had at least one touchdown catch. He was inactive once (on October 15 at the New York Jets) with a knee injury, allowing tight end Jason Rader to make the first start of his career. On November 19 against the Minnesota Vikings, Peelle had three catches for 21 yards and one touchdown, coming on an 11-yard pass from former Oregon teammate Joey Harrington. It was his first touchdown catch as a member of the Dolphins.

On August 30, 2008, Peelle was released by the Dolphins during final cuts.

Atlanta Falcons

Peelle was signed by the Atlanta Falcons on September 1, 2008. The team released tight end Jason Rader to make room for Peelle on the roster. Peelle was named the starting tight end after Ben Hartsock was placed on injured reserve. Peelle has made a great impact on the Falcons as a great receiving tight end. He helped the Falcons clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 2004. The Falcons re-signed him on February 26, 2009.

On August 18, 2011, he was released with an injury settlement.

San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers signed Peelle on September 13, 2011. During the 2011 season, he typically played in multiple-tight-end sets backing up Vernon Davis. On November 20, 2011, against the Arizona Cardinals, after injuries to other players, Peelle also played fullback.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Peelle on August 13, 2012, but he was released during final roster cuts on August 27, 2012.[3]

Coaching career

On February 8, 2013, Peelle was hired by new coach Chip Kelly to serve as the Philadelphia Eagles' assistant tight ends coach.[4] On January 26, 2015, he was promoted to tight ends coach.[5] He was retained under new head coach Doug Pederson as tight ends coach on January 20, 2016.[6] Peelle won his first Super Bowl ring when the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII 41-33.
