Dallas Cowboys News: Quarterback Dak Prescott Again Defends Relationship With Tony Romo

Dallas Cowboys franchise quarterback Dak Prescott recently spoke about Tony Romo again. In an interview on The Rich Eisen Show, Prescott, for the second time this year, shut down all the rumors saying he had a terrible relationship with Romo. 

According to NFL.com, Prescott had nothing but praises for Romo. The face of the franchise for Dallas expressed appreciation and gratitude towards the retired quarterback, who he said helped him and became one of his coaches. 

Prescott then added that for him, he never felt "uncomfortable" with Romo. But he is uncertain if the former Cowboys star feels the same. 

"I don't know how he felt personally. I mean, obviously I know as much of a competitor he is, that he wanted to play. That as much success that he had in this league, that he probably felt that he should play. But it never [got uncomfortable]," Prescott explained. 

The rumors that there is beef between Romo and Prescott began last season. Dallas' previous campaign should have been Romo's comeback season. Unfortunately, he was again troubled by injuries. These health issues forced him to the sidelines. In his absence, Prescott took the starting quarterback job and rose to stardom. 

By the time Romo was back to a hundred percent, the Cowboys were all in on Prescott. Because of this, the older passer became a subject of trade rumors earlier in the offseason. However, the team did not want to deal him away or let him be a free agent. Soon, he just retired and became an analyst for CBS Sports. 

As mentioned, this is the second time Prescott defended his relationship with Romo. The first time was back in April when he was talking about the shoes he needs to fill now that he is the main quarterback of "America's Team."
