Owner Jerry Jones updated Peters’ progress this week while appearing on the Shan and RJ show on 105.3 The Fan (KRLD-FM). Per the Dallas Morning News:

“He didn’t have camp, but, boy, am I glad we got him. We’ll have a spot for him. There’s no question that we’re going to be using him, before we’re out and maybe sooner rather than later. But, again, I won’t be more specific, but he can play both tackles. So, there’s all kinds of ways and all kinds of combinations here — by the way, that’s a problem when you’re having to do all kinds of combinations in the offensive line.”

ESPN reports Peters signed with Dallas after “the Cowboys lost eight-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith until at least December because of a hamstring that tore off the bone and required surgery.”

Peters, 40, spent 11 years with the Eagles from 2009 to 2020 and helped the team win Super Bowl LII. He spent the 2021 season with the Chicago Bears and started 15 games at left tackle.

Peters is second-oldest player in the NFL, with the 45-year-old Tom Brady leading the way.

In 17 NFL seasons, Peters has earned nine Pro Bowl nods and has been named an All-Pro twice, making him a likely candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Should Peters stick with the Cowboys, Philadelphia hosts Dallas on Oct. 16 and visits AT&T Stadium on Christmas Eve.
