Jason Peters wanted to play in 2022, but he had to sit aside his dislike for one team to make that happen.
Four years after saying he hated the Cowboys because of their arrogance, Peters signed to Dallas’ practice squad.
Peters, who spent 12 years in Philadelphia, is returning to his home state to play for the most hated team in the league.
“You can’t blame me. We were rivals. At the end of the day, me and Jerry go back to Arkansas. When he called me, we sat down and talked. It was like love at first sight. We were talking about the Hogs,” Peters said.
In 2018, Peters famously said, “I don’t like the Cowboys. They’re just arrogant, the organization, America’s Team.” Peters changed his mind and his word choice on Monday.
“I don’t really call it arrogance,” Peters said. “They had swagger, pretty much the same thing. The swagger they go in week in and week out with that swagger, you could tell how (with) that defense.”
Peters spent 11 seasons as a member of the Eagles.
