Here we go again, another offensive tackle story to be told. This time it's Jason Peters from the Chicago Bears. A lot of you may remember him another way though, perhaps as a… Philadelphia Eagle!
Jason Peters is reportedly expected to visit the Cowboys for a workout https://t.co/nn0MG6wvXI
That's right, Jason Peters was once a Philadelphia Eagle player from 2009-2020. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2004 and has been in the league for a total of 17 seasons. His main position throughout the years has been left tackle but has fluctuated into other positions such as RT and IT.
Jason turns 41 next year and started in 15 games last season with the Bears. Apparently, by the Pro Bowl focus grading chart, Jason Peters ranks as the 22nd best offensive lineman in the NFL. Jason was born in Bowie County, Texas, and attended the University of Arkansas. Peters has made nine Pro Bowls in his career and played a total of 228 games.
Seems like a solid player to be going on your 17th season like that, but is it possible for us to see Jason on the Dallas Cowboys?
It seems like whenever this question comes up, it always points to a big “No” for the Cowboys. Just the other day there were rumors of a potential trade going around. The Cowboys were looking to trade for Offensive Tackle Chuma Edoga, but he ended up being cut by the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons grabbed him before anyone else could.
This was a big missed opportunity for the Cowboys. Hopefully, they can get Jason Peters on board before any other team tries to pick him up. At the moment Jason is rumored to be visiting the Cowboys sometime this week for some training, It's unsure what day he will be attending though.
Jason will be a very strong addition to the team as in terms of strength. A man who is built like him and has 17 years of experience in the NFL will certainly have a large impact on any team you throw him to.
It's all a matter of if the Cowboys can seal the deal with Jason. They have had too many linemen slip away from them this preseason. Week one is approaching fast, it's time for the Cowboys to act quickly and acquire a lineman immediately so they can start practicing with the team and learning the ropes.
