The Dallas Cowboys will be opening training camp this weekend and quarterback Tony Romo’s newly dedicated self will once again prepare for another season. However, this year will come with more pressure thanks to his $100 million contract that was agreed on this offseason.
With the deal, Romo will need to show the team that his contract was well spent, so he has been focusing during the offseason as he prepares to make a big jump this season.
For Romo, he can put his preparation to the test if he is given the opportunity to help game-plan for opponents, which is something that he believes he will be more involved with this season.
“As quarterback, through the experiences you’ve had, you just understand what defenses are trying to do and you gain a very high understanding of football concepts and what you want to do,” Romo said, via Peter Jackel of the Racine Journal Times.
“I think here going forward, I’ll just be more involved in game-planning. There are certain things I really believe can help us that we’re going to do some of that. It’s a collective group effort and I think we’re all going to go in there and go to work.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said that he wants Romo to become more involved, so he should be getting his wish.
With Romo, Bill Callahan and Jason Garrett brainstorming and discussing what is best for the offense, the Cowboys will have some unique insight on opponents and their game-plans can be more thought out than ever before.
