Cowboys' Tony Romo plans to practice Saturday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) Despite dealing with an eye issue, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to practice Saturday, reports the Star-Telegram. Romo was held out of Friday's practice to receive treatment for a sty in his eye.

"I don't want to get into specifics of what we did, but we don't think it's a major thing, and we do anticipate him practicing [Saturday]," coach Jason Garrett said.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo intends to practice more


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he plans to ramp up his level of activity during training camp, planning to practice for three days in a row at times, per the Dallas Morning-News

Romo, who has battled back issues for the last several seasons, did not practice in more than consecutive days last training camp. 

"I think we'll practice more this year than we did last year, but at the same time it's not out of the realm to go two-and-one sometimes (two days on, one off) and I think the plan is we'll have some where we go three in a row," Romo said. "We'll see how it goes."


Cowboys QB Tony Romo exceeding expectations at OTAs


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2015) Cowboys quarterbacks Tony Romo has been a full participant during organized team activities, which the team was not anticipating, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"He has way exceeded expectations," Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "We really didn't anticipate him to practice three days in a row and he hasn't missed anything. He's taking the amount of reps he's supposed to take and he's throwing the ball with a lot of authority and really engaged with the guys."

Romo has undergone back surgeries during the last two years, but he said the back is no longer an issue.

"It's been good," Romo said. "I've been building the base up, continuing to get stronger each week. I've just been excited about how it has been going and the progression."


Cowboys' Tony Romo felt like Fred Flintstone with injured back


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is thrilled to be at a stage where he feels like he has full control over his body. 

While dealing with a nerve issue in his back over the past couple of years, that wasn't the case. As Romo described during an interview on Dallas radio station KTCK-AM, via the Dallas Morning News, the nerve injury made things incredibly difficult. 

"So, what happens is you just lose strength – you’re almost like Fred Flinstone in that you’re trying to run and get the car going, but it’s really not going," Romo said. "You say go and the nerve doesn’t send the signal to tell you to go ... It’s like starting over, like when you’re a child and you just want to say go, push off, fire, and you’re legs won’t. And that just comes from working day in and day out, over and over and over again. And now, it happens a lot faster, it’s a lot longer periods of time I’m able to maintain the strength before you get fatigued, and that wasn’t the case at the start of last football season."

Early last season it seemed Romo played a bit cautious. As the season played out, he looked the part of a healed quarterback, outside of dealing with a pair of broken ribs later in the year. He finished the 2014 regular season with 3,705 yards and 34 touchdowns in 15 starts. Of course, passing numbers weren't where they normally are due to the dominant running game the Cowboys possessed. 

Romo's back will likely never be 100 percent, he said. But from where it was, progress has been made. 

"I think when you have back surgery you’ll always have something," Romo said. "It’s not like other injuries where you rehab, and then it’s, ‘Hey, that part’s stronger than it used to be.’"


Cowboys QB Tony Romo getting stronger after back surgeries


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo isn't a regular participant during offseason organized team activities. He's usually taking it slow because of his past history with back surgeries.

This offseason, though, Romo has been present for all practices as he says he continues to improve and get stronger, per The Dallas Morning News.

“The further I get away from the surgery the stronger I get in a lot of areas,’’ Romo said. “Now I need to continue. I’m working as hard as I can to ensure that I’m strengthening the areas that I need to be at my best and right now.

“It’s just been a good start in the offseason. I’ve been able to continue to build and grow.  I’ll give credit to the training staff and the weight room staff . We’ve had a great process of figuring out how to continue to get stronger in the offseason, which I haven’t been able to do in the last few years, and that’s been as exciting as anything just to be able to get back into building that and the football stuff is just showing that on the other end.’’

Romo passed for 3,705 yards and 34 touchdowns last season.


Healthy QB Tony Romo providing optimism for Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) A Tony Romo ahead of the game is a rather scary thought for NFL defenses. But such is the case for the Cowboys quarterback, who for the first time in three years is healthy at this point in the offseason.

In 2013, he was recovering from the removal of cyst. Last year he was battling back from a discectomy. But he's fine now and is performing quite well.

"It's been great," Romo told ESPN. "I think just to be able to kind of have an offseason. You're always rehabbing, but at the same time, I'm kind of able to build during this offseason. It's exciting really."

It's more exciting considering he is coming off his finest year, which featured a league-best completion percentage (69.9) and passer rating (113.2) with 34 touchdowns and just nine interceptions.

In training camp he never practiced more than two straight days, then sat out every Wednesday during the regular season. It remains to be seen if a healthy offseason translates into even better production for the 35-year-old Romo in 2015. The team will be careful in regard to his health.

"Tony's obviously further along," Jason Garrett said. "He didn't have an offseason surgery, so he was able to get a lot more things in our offseason program up to this point. ... You want to make sure you monitor him. ... He's handled everything we've asked him to do to this point really well."


Cowboys' Tony Romo says offensive line can extend his career


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo didn't need back surgery this offseason, the first time in three years he's avoided a procedure. 

The 35-year-old Romo credits the team's improved defensive line, which limited the number of hits on him last year and could help prolong his career. 

"When you have a good offensive line like we do, the thought definitely crosses your mind to ensure you do everything possible to play longer than maybe what you had envisioned," Romo said, per NFL.com. "We’ll reassess that in a few years. My wife will tell you, I’m talking a little more long term than I maybe had been. So we’ll see."


Stephen Jones: Cowboys' Tony Romo will have big year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones is optimistic about his team's quarterback for the upcoming season. 

In an appearance on Dallas' KRLD-FM radio, Jones predicted that Tony Romo will have a career year. 

"No question in my mind," Jones said. "I think he keeps getting better. I actually had a visit with him ... and he said he's felt as good as he has felt in years, in terms of his off-season and how his body feels and the work that he's doing. The last couple of years he has been dealing with off-season surgeries and some uncomfortable things. But he said he thinks he's ready to have the best year he's ever had."


Report: Romo restructures deal, saves Cowboys $13M in cap space


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has restructured his contract, according to Yahoo Sports. He will save the Cowboys $13 million in salary cap space.

Romo indicated in a radio interview Tuesday he was going to restructure his contract and also said he was willing to take a pay cut so the team could re-sign running back DeMarco Murray, who eventually signed with the Eagles.

"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 it 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."

Romo's restructuring does clear up enough cap space for the Cowboys to potentially make a run at trading for Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who is slated to make $12.75 million in base salary in 2015, per ProFootballTalk.com.

Peterson's name has been linked to the Cowboys in the past, including Peterson's dad -- Nelson Peterson -- mentioning in late February he's heard rumors of Peterson being potentially traded to the Cowboys, Cardinals or Colts.


Cowboys' Tony Romo: DeMarco Murray asked me to take a pay cut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) 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
(3/31/2015) 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 | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) 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
(2/18/2015) 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.

No surgery expected for Tony Romo this offseason


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/13/2015) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he doesn't think quarterback Tony Romo will need any surgery this offseason, reports the Dallas Morning News. Romo underwent back surgeries each of the past two offseasons, causing him to miss competitive drills in OTAs.

"[When] you're not coming off of a surgery, you kind of go through that normal schedule that you would in a typical offseason," Garrett said. "I think that's going to help him, help him lay a better foundation of just being a football player again."

This season, Romo played through torn rib cartilage, two fractures in the transverse process in his back, and a damaged left ring finger.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo makes history in Week 16 rout


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) Tony Romo completed 16 straight throws, tossed four touchdowns and became the Cowboys' all-time leading passer in the Week 16 blowout of the Colts. Romo finished 18 of 20 for 218 yards and posted his second four-touchdown game of the year.

On a 25-yard score to tight end Jason Witten in the third quarter, Romo passed Troy Aikman (32,942 passing yards) as the franchise's all-time leader. Romo is up to 32,971 passing yards in 37 fewer games.
