The Cowboys have entered negotiations with Jason Peters in hopes of signing


The Dallas Cowboys have moved closer to signing free agent offensive tackle Jason Peters. the old Philadelphia Eagles player (and Chicago Bears) was at the Star for a medical and meetings with the front office. It all went well, so the team and Peters moved into negotiations.

Dallas has been in desperate need of offensive tackle help since Tyron Smith’s injury. First-round pick Tyler Smith is the likely candidate to start at left tackle should Peters not join the team. If Peters signs today, it will be interesting to see if the Cowboys decide to play him in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Bucs, or will they wait a week and play Smith, letting Peters acclimate.

It would make sense for them to sign Peters as a starter, so it’s likely that Smith will return to left guard once Peters is ready to leave. Either way, the Cowboys desperately need Peters on the roster.

UPDATE: It doesn’t look like anything will happen soon in an official capacity.
