Impending free-agent left tackle Tyron Smith will hit the open market and a return to the Dallas Cowboys is unlikely, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Smith, 33, has spent his entire 13-year career in Dallas, earning eight Pro Bowl nominations and making five All-Pro teams. He was also named to the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.

Despite his age and long injury history, Smith will be "highly coveted" in an offensive tackle market that lacks top talents, adds Rapoport.

Smith hasn't played a full regular season since 2015. The veteran missed 33 games from 2020-22 but was able to make 13 appearances in 2023 and earned second-team All-Pro honors.
