We keep waiting for a happy ending when it comes to the Tony Romo situation with the Dallas Cowboys. That may not be in the cards.
How ‘bout this, Dallas Cowboys’ fans? Those expecting a pleasant divorce between former starting quarterback Tony Romo and the organization may be in for a lot of disappointment.
According to a source and courtesy of NFL Network reporter Jane Slater, the veteran signal-caller has “taken (the) situation very personally in Dallas and has distanced himself from teammates and coach who were “Team Dak.”
Dak, of course, is Prescott. The 2016 fourth-round pick was forced into the starting lineup when Romo went down in the preseason with a back injury. That was preceded by a season-ending injury to reserve Kellen Moore. Of course, all Prescott did was lead the club to a 13-3 record and the NFC East title. He captured NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors as well.
The former Mississippi State product completed 67.8 percent of his throws for 3,667 yards and 23 scores. The rookie sensation also ran for 282 yards and six touchdowns. Perhaps even more impressive was the fact that he committed only eight turnovers in 16 regular-season outings.
So what exactly does “distancing” himself mean when it comes to Romo? Are the Cowboys now more likely to give him his walking papers and be done with the situation? There doesn’t seem to be any serious trade offers out there for the productive but oft-injured performer. Over the past two seasons, he’s played in a total of five games – making four starts in 2015.
It’s just never boring when it comes to the Dallas Cowboys.
