Jason Peters scheduled to visit Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are expected to host veteran offensive tackle, Jason Peters, on a visit, according to Todd Archer from ESPN.

Peters is 40 years old and has started 218 games in his career including 15 games for the Chicago Bears last season. Peters was one of four tackles voted to the official all-decade team for the 2010s in 2020. Tyron Smith was included on the all-decade team as well.

Peters has made the first-team all-pro team twice in his career (2011, 2013) and second-team all-pro four times (2007,2008,2010, 2014).

Peters last month on his free agency: “I don’t have a time frame. Whenever the opportunity comes, I am going to give it one more run at it. Try to get me another ring or pass on some knowledge to some of the young kids, up and coming.”

Coach Mike McCarthy when asked about Tyler Smith starting at left tackle said, “I’d like to defer on our starting lineup. But Tyler will definitely get a lot of work at left tackle.”

At the very least, the Peters visit signals that the Cowboys are sniffing around to bring in another tackle ahead of the season opener against the Tampa Buccaneers in 11 days.
