Jason Peters made sure to let the past die with his hatred for the Dallas Cowboys.

Peters signed into his practice squad on Monday,

Just two years after playing his last snap as the Philadelphia Eagles.

He spent 11 seasons as a member of the Eagles but said it was "love at first sight" when he got a call from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

"You can't blame me. We were rivals. At the end of the day, Jerry and I go back to Arkansas.

When he called me, we sat down and talked.

It was like love at first sight. We were talking about hogs," Peters said.

Another factor that probably went into Peters' decision to sign with the Cowboys is that he lives in Texas.

The Cowboys are his hometown team.

Peters will join the practice team before being activated in the 53-man roster.

He brings solid depth to the tackle position, especially with Tyrone Smith being injured.
