After an early Thursday session with the player at The Star,

the Cowboys and Peters' agent, Vincent Taylor,

were "still grinding" on a contract on Friday.

The offensive lineman, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection,

underwent a physical examination on Friday before the start of

the season with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who is familiar 

with the player from their time together at the University of Arkansas.

Dallas News reported Friday night that it was informed by a source

that a deal would not be "official" at this time.
