The Dallas Cowboys lost all-world left tackle Tyron Smith to a serious injury and quickly found a replacement. They chose nine-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters.
Mike McCarthy, Cowboys’ head coach, shared his thoughts about adding Peters to his team on Monday. He spoke to the media and praised the addition of Peters as a way to give his team more depth. He also believes that Peters will continue his career in Dallas.
“This is about adding depth.” McCarthy said. He said that Peters would “love to finish his career here.”
Peters enters his 18th season in the NFL. Most of that time has been spent with Philadelphia Eagles. Peters was a left tackle for the Chicago Bears last year, and he started 15 games.

Between 2007-2016, Jason Peters was the best left tackle that the NFL had ever seen. He was an All-Pro six times and made nine Pro Bowls.
Peters was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Decade Team in 2010 and won a Super Bowl with Philadelphia Eagles.
The 40-year old offensive tackle has had injuries. In the past five seasons, he’s missed 22 games.
Jason Peters will be able to replace Tyron Smith, while he is recovering from injury. Or will the offensive line struggle.
