Jason Garrett says Tony Romo getting better every day


For all you Fantasy Football owners thinking about taking Dallas Cowboys quarterback in your draft, good news is coming. Aside from Tony Romo calling this the “most complete team” he has ever been on, head coach Jason Garrett says the quarterback is getting better every day.

Romo had a surgery to remove a cyst from his back in April. It was causing him discomfort and he elected to get it removed early in the offseason to be available for training camp. Because of that he had to work harder on his conditioning to get ready after missing OTAs and minicamp.

“I think he’s gotten better and better every day,” Garrett said, via ESPN Dallas. “Clearly when he first started practicing on the first day he wasn’t quite himself, but the second day he was better and the third day he was better.

“He’s moving around. You see him get away from the line of scrimmage. You see him react like he normally reacts. The ball is coming out of his hand better. He’s just not quite as stiff. He hasn’t been in this environment for a little while”

ESPN’s Todd Archer says that Romo has completed 46 of 63 pass attempts, or 73%, in team and 7-0n-7 drills. In that span he was only intercepted twice.
