Dallas Cowboys Slowly Moving on From Tony Romo; Veteran an Assurance at Quarterback?
It looks like the Dallas Cowboys are really entertaining the possibility that Tony Romo will come back to give football another try. They are still moving on from him and he may be their assurance at quarterback just in case Dak Prescott gets hurt in the 2017 NFL season.
The relationship of Dallas and Romo soured early in the offseason. Soon, he decided to retire and following this the Cowboys released him. After being let go, the former franchise quarterback took a broadcasting job with CBS.
Before Romo opted to hang the cleats, many believed he was still capable of playing in the NFL. Perhaps, Dallas thinks so to that is why it is keeping the doors open for him.
According to ESPN, as of this moment, no one is using the locker and jersey number of Romo in the Big D. This suggests that the Cowboys are not yet officially saying goodbye to the 37-year-old.
Dallas' quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, while talking to Scout.com, was asked about Romo returning. He declined to provide a definite answer, but he is also confident that the veteran quarterback turned broadcaster could see action in the NFL.
"It's fun to speculate about that, if Dak were to go down in week 2, would Tony come back? I don't know the answer to that. I just don't know. Do I think he's capable of coming back and playing? Most definitely," Wilson shared.
At this point, Dallas' focus is likely on the players it has. Although Wade was right when he said it is interesting to discuss possibilities, especially when it comes to Romo.
Looking at the Cowboys' present roster, it seems they do need Romo since joining Prescott at quarterback are Kellen Moore, Austin Appleby, and Cooper Rush. All three are going to compete for the backup duties this offseason. However, no matter how young they are or how much potential they have, none of them is on the same level as the veteran passer.
