The Dallas Cowboys are hoping quarterback Tony Romo can stay healthy for the upcoming season after having back surgery for the second straight offseason. Add in the fact that Romo isn’t getting any younger, and the Cowboys might need to worry.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones isn’t one of those people though, and he thinks Romo is getting better with age.
“I know Tony and I know he only gets better with age in terms of what kind of quarterback he’s going to be,” Jones said Friday, via the Dallas Morning News. “He had one of his best years ever last year. And I expect him to improve upon that.”
Romo did have a solid season with 3,828 yards and 31 touchdowns. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s season last year might be a better example to point at and inspire hope about Romo can do in the remaining seasons of his career.
Romo said he feels ready to go, and Jones agrees.
“I feel great. I feel really good about him,” Jones said. “I have always been confident that he’ll be fine. I listened to our doctors and there is no reason to be concerned.”
