Cowboys' Tony Romo: DeMarco Murray asked me to take a pay cut
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(7:44 pm ET) Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was really hoping to remain with the Cowboys this offseason. So much so, he asked quarterback Tony Romo to take a pay cut to remain with the team, Romo said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, per the Dallas Morning News.
"DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?' I said, 'I will. I would take a pay cut to go do this,'" Romo said. "I was like, 'They're going to restructure me.' That's the same thing in some ways, just for the salary cap purposes. He was like, 'OK, now we're back to being friends again.' I would take $5 million less if meant getting him back.
"He knew that. It was just funny how he was literally worried about that part of it for a week. I'm like, 'That's not the reason.' I'm like, 'Obviously I'll restructure. I would even take a pay cut.' He was like, 'OK, we can be friends again.' It's amazing what you think about in those moments."
Cowboys QB Tony Romo excited about this offseason
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(7:00 pm ET) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is excited about what the offseason holds for him, according to ESPN.
“This is the first offseason where I’ve been able to kind of get after it this early and be able to kind of improve in a lot of different areas that I think you aren’t able to until you get healthy enough to attack it,” Romo said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday. “I’m just excited about that, really.”
Romo, 34, is encouraged by the fact that he is able to do a lot of different things during the offseason process while working out.
“Now I’m able to do that while actually doing functional strength training through different versions of squats,” Romo said. “I’m not putting anything on my back and doing stuff like that but you are doing a lot of single-leg stuff and different things that I started getting into during the season that helped a lot. Now it’s nice to be able to do that in the offseason.”
Romo has thrown for 33,270 yards with 242 touchdowns and 110 interceptions in his 12-year career.
Tony Romo on losing DeMarco Murray: 'Not an ideal situation'
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(3/12/15) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo seemed taken aback by running back DeMarco Murray's defection to the Eagles. "It just happened," he said, per the Dallas Morning News. "All the way up until today, I was still thinking we'd be able to keep DeMarco.
"Obviously, it's not an ideal situation. I'm losing a close friend, too, so that hurts. We have to trust in the process and the people making the decisions. We have salary cap implications and a bunch of other things that we have to decide. That plays a role. The Eagles obviously thought as highly of him as we did."
Murray led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards last season, scoring 13 touchdowns.

Cowboys could choose not to restructure Tony Romo's contract
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday that the team could forego negotiating a restructure of the contract of quarterback Tony Romo, ESPN.com reports.
Romo is set to count an NFL-high $27.773 million against the cap in 2015.
"Theoretically we could [leave it that high]," Jones said. "Or some form of that."
Once the league finalizes the cap number for the upcoming season, the Cowboys can decide whether Romo's contract needs to be restructured, which carries the possibility of gaining as much as $12.8 million in cap room but would raise the quarterback's cap figure in upcoming seasons.
"I don't know that it's break glass in case of emergency," Jones said. "It's just how we want to structure things and who do we want to push [money] out on, if anybody, and do we want to push out. Those will be decisions we have to come to grips with."
If the Cowboys don't touch Romo's deal, his cap number will drop to $17.635 million in 2016.
Packers' Aaron Rodgers named NFL MVP at NFL Honors
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/31/15) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the 2015 NFL MVP at the NFL Honors awards show, held Saturday at the Phoenix Symphony Hall in Phoenix, Ariz.
Rodgers played all 16 regular-season games in 2014 for just the second time in the last five seasons, completing 65.6 percent of his passes while racking up 4,381 passing yards, 38 passing touchdowns and five interceptions. He also added two more touchdowns on the ground while gaining 269 rushing yards on 43 carries.
Several other awards were handed out at the ceremony Saturday, as follows.
AP Offensive Player of the Year: DeMarco Murray, Cowboys
AP Defensive Player of the Year: J.J. Watt, Texans
AP Offensive Rookie of the Year: Odell Beckham, Giants
AP Defensive Rookie of the Year: Aaron Donald, Rams
AP Comeback Player of the Year: Rob Gronkowski, Patriots
AP Coach of the Year: Bruce Arians, Cardinals
AP Assistant Coach of the Year: Todd Bowles, Cardinals

In addition, eight finalists were voted into the Hall of Fame: running back Jerome Bettis, wide receiver Tim Brown, defensive end/linebacker Charles Haley, linebacker Junior Seau, guard Will Shields, center Mick Tingelhoff and executives Bill Polian and Ron Wolf.
|Tony Romo is expected to be fine coming off back surgery in December, and we expect him to remain a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback. Romo was No. 8 in Fantasy points last year in a standard league with 3,828 passing yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 64 percent completions. He could see a boost in production this year with Scott Linehan calling plays since Linehan allowed Matthew Stafford to throw it at will with the Lions. Romo loses Miles Austin this season, but he still has a standout receiving corps with Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten leading the way. Keep an eye on Romo's back and make sure he's 100 percent, but we expect him to be ready for Week 1. He is worth drafting in Round 5 or 6, and the longer you wait the better off you are in drafting Romo this year.
