Free agent left tackle Jason Peters met with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday.
Owner Jerry Jones said he planned to meet with the 40-year-old veteran following Peters’ physical exams.
Earlier this week, Jones insisted he was comfortable entering the season with untested 21-year-old rookie Tyler Smith at left tackle.
Peters, with 218 career NFL starts under his belt, could serve as a mentor for the 2022 first-round pick at a critical position.
Peters could also provide needed depth with veteran starter Tyron Smith on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Peters started 15 games for the Chicago Bears in 2021 after earning nine Pro Bowl selections in 16 seasons with the Buffalo Bills (2004-08) and Philadelphia Eagles (2009-20).
Undrafted out of Arkansas in 2004, Peters has started 218 of his 228 career NFL games. He won a ring with the Eagles in Super Bowl LII and was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 2010s.
The Cowboys open the season at home Sept. 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
