Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had back surgery in December ending his season prematurely. That has caused some concern about his durability and the Cowboys future at the position, it even has some suggesting the Cowboys consider taking a quarterback in the draft.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t one of those people.
“I don’t anticipate drafting a quarterback high with where we are with Romo, especially one that might can play immediately and several of these guys in today’s NFL are playing pretty quick, [Russell] Wilson, and [Colin] Kaepernick, and those guys who are move-around types, some of those guys who take a little more seasoning are your traditional quarterbacks, so all of that would figure in,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “An early pick would be more inclined to be one that you would say use now. The other thing we’ve got is when you draft out of that first round, those are four-year contracts and three-year contracts as you go down, so to some degree, you’re just drafting one to develop for somebody else.”
