Jerry Jones: Tony Romo looks “very good”


The Dallas Cowboys made a big commitment to Tony Romo with a $108 million contract. A huge contract for a quarterback who has won exactly 1 playoff game.

“Very good,” Jones said after Saturday’s practice, via ESPN Dallas. “I like what he’s doing. He’s benefiting not only from on-the-field but off-the-field stuff. A lot of the stuff you’re seeing out there is him and some of his things. Really good. Sit in on most of the after practice offensive meetings, and I know it’s going good from their perspective in those meetings.”

The Cowboys are being careful with Tony Romo and are considering holding Romo out of the Hall of Fame game.

“We just want to use our head,” Jones said. “We’ve got five games to get the work in we think is good. We’ll just use our head. We obviously want to see all these guys at the QB. But I didn’t know there is any hubbub about it. Is there?”

“You all sit down and tell me what you’d do, seriously, about just how much (to play him),” Jones said. “Here he is, he’s coming back, working himself into shape, I think really what Jason meant was with all these guys with a fifth game, we’ll use our head and be sensible about it.”
