Upon Romo’s retirement, owner Jerry Jones called the quarterback, who had been with the Cowboys for 14 seasons, one of the best players in the franchise’s illustrious history.
“We wish Tony and his family nothing but the best,” Jones said in a statement. “As an organization, we did what he asked us to do in terms of his release, and we wanted to do what was ultimately in his best interest and in the best interest of his family.
“Tony has been a wonderful representative of the Cowboys organization for 14 years, and he left everything he had on the field. He will leave us with many great memories and a legacy of being, truly, one of the greatest players in Cowboys history. We are thrilled for him and his family that he will be able to continue working as a professional in the game he so dearly loves.
“He is a young man who is just getting started on a long journey in life. All the best my friend.”
Despite questions about his future, and the Cowboys’ delay in releasing Romo, it’s clear that his relationship with the organization never deteriorated.

“Tony Romo has a unique combination of athletic ability, arm talent, vision, and instincts for the game,” coach Jason Garrett added. “What separates Tony from many other players, however, is a rare competitive spirit. Tony loves to play. Tony loves to compete. The best ones always do. In practice. During games. On the field. Off the field. Tony competes to the end in wholesale jerseys that he does.
“That relentless spirit that Tony plays with is contagious. He makes his teammates better. He makes his coaches better. He makes his team better. He has grown so much as a player and as a person over the course of his career and has made a significant impact on the lives of so many. I consider myself fortunate to be at the top of that list. It has been one of the great privileges of my life to work with Tony Romo, one of the greatest players in Dallas Cowboys cheap jerseys history.”
Baylor’s Seth Russell, who has spent the offseason recovering from an ankle dislocation that ended his season last year, threw for the Cowboys staff on “Dallas Day” at team headquarters along with SMU’s Matt Davis, Virginia Tech’s Jerod Evans, Tulsa’s Dane Evans, West Virginia’s Skyler Howard and UT-San Antonio’s Jared Johnson, per the Dallas Morning News. “Dallas Day” is the Cowboys’ annual workout for local prospects.
Russell threw for 2,100 yards in each of two injury shortened seasons for the Bears. A neck injury ended his junior season after seven games. For his career, he threw 60 touchdown passes with 18 interceptions. Davis was a late entry to the draft field after an unsuccessful attempt to attain a sixth year of NCAA eligibility, while the Hokies’ Evans was an early draft entry after only one season as a starter in college.

The club will host 18 draft prospects this week, 17 of them on the defensive side of the ball, led by some of the top talent available in the 2017 NFL Draft. The list, per Albert Breer of MMQB, includes USC CB Adoree’ Jackson, Ohio State CB Gareon Conley, Tennessee DE Derek Barnett and Michigan DE Taco Charlton. The lone offensive player in this week to see the Cowboys is USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster.
The Cowboys hold the No. 28 overall pick of the draft and have defensive needs both in the secondary and at defensive end. NFL clubs are permitted to host only 30 prospects on pre-draft visits, so Dallas will burn through more than half of theirs this week alone.
Other defensive prospects visiting the Cowboys this week include Washington CB Kevin King, UConn DB Obi Melifonwu, UCLA CB Fabian Moreau, Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley, Louisiana Tech S Xavier Woods, Oregon State CB Treston DeCoud, Florida CB Teez Tabor, Colorado CB Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado S Tedric Thompson, Ohio DE Tarell Basham, UCLA DE Takk McKinley, Florida CB Quincy Wilson and Villanova DE Tanoh Kpassagnon.
If you were counting along, that was nine cornerbacks and five defensive ends. Although he’s not visiting the Cowboys this week, Wisconsin pass rusher T.J. Watt has been scheduled as well. It might be premature to say the Cowboys are going to emphasize defense in the draft, but it’s fairly obvious that they’ll explore that possibility this week.
