A new shepherd may soon arrive in town.

Even if it's just a far cry from their first rodeo.

David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports

that contract talks have begun with veteran tackle Jason Peters.

Peters had a physical relationship with the team on Friday, and had a

"very productive round" of meetings with team officials.

At 40, he became the second oldest player in the NFL after only

45-year-old Tom Brady. Peters entered the NFL in 2004 as a draft free agent.

He played tight end. The Bills made him a left tackle.
