Jason Peters joined a former foe on Monday while signing with the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.
The 40-year-old offensive tackle played 11 of his 17 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles,
Where 148 matches have started. He also called the Cowboys an "arrogant organization" in 2018.
On Monday, Peters reclassified his ego as "swagger," according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill Jr.
And said he quickly bonded with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
"You can't blame me. We were rivals," Peters said.
"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."
Cowboys fans left him behind and welcomed the nine-time pro bowler to the US team.
The Cowboys will start the season without Tyrone Smith, who suffered a knee injury in late August.
Rookie Tyler Smith was expected to slip to the left tackle,
But Peters could now finally take over that role.
However, Peters will need more time to prepare before the Cowboys open their season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday.
