The Cowboys and free agent left tackle Jason Peters appear to be making progress toward a signing.

Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that Peters is in Dallas today, taking a physical.

Jones said there’s currently nothing to report beyond that, but he and Peters will sit down for a meeting at the team facility today.

Peters started 15 games for the Bears last year and could fill in for Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith, who is expected to miss most of the season after suffering a torn hamstring last week. Rookie first-round pick Tyler Smith is currently penciled in as the starting left tackle, but the Cowboys might move Tyler Smith inside to guard and give the left tackle job to Peters.

The 40-year-old Peters will be, if he signs, the second-oldest player in the NFL, behind only the 45-year-old Tom Brady.

  1. Reminds me of when Dallas signed Harold Carmichael after he was finished as a player. JP is a HOF’er, but he’s done as a player

  2. Everyone other than Dr. Jones expects him to miss the entire season but that’s a different story.

    Sounds like if Peters has a pulse, they aren’t even going to bother with a workout and are just going to sign him.

  3. Good for Peters. Still chasing the dream & it’s kind of incredible that his stats/tape are more than good enough to keep him a starter in this league. Can’t question the man’s toughness or desire following a season where he made the minimum, here he is still showing up for more.

  4. Good for him. Great dude, great locker-room guy, can still hold-his-own. He was a blessing last year for the Bears.

  5. I’ll be kinda bummed out seeing JP in a cowboys jersey. He held up not bad for the bears. Peters clearly isn’t the same guy he was 10 or even 5 years ago but I won’t be surprised if he plays up to a league average level. His football iq still helps him to contribute

  6. I love Peters, but, they’re going to have to tear the uniform off this guy for him to retire. Lastly, being an Eagle for so long, the Cowboys? C’MON MAN!

    First, he was born and raised in Texas. Second, and most importantly, players don’t take the rivalry business nearly as serious as fans do. For them it’s like leaving UPS to take a job at FedEx. It’s a paycheck.

  8. Undrafted as a te coming out of college,Bills made him a tackle.. great career.. way to work JP !

  9. I had a feeling this was going to happen. Love JP & understand it but as an eagles fan, still makes me sick

    I missed the part where msc4realeagles said he expected Peters not to sign with the Cowboys because he used to play for the Eagles.

    msc4realeagles is just expressing what any Eagles fan would feel at seeing one of their All-Timers put on a Cowboys uniform.

    No need for the ‘it’s a business’ and ‘players don’t think like fans’ talk.
