There are real Romo story angles here: His health, with the Cowboys always monitoring his back and the rest of his valuable frame, especially after he comes off missing most of 2015 with a pair of shoulder surgeries; his age, which is why the 36-year-old Will take some “Romo Wednesdays” off during this summer and throughout the season, most likely; his “window,” with owner Jerry Jones is proclamations that Romo has “four or five years left” now something that Jerry has been saying for, oh … the last for five years.READ MORE: 'I Just Think It's A Bad Dream': Parent Reacts After Pregnant Mother Of 4 Killed On Texas Highway
“We are on the same timetable,” Romo said, again laughing.
The reaction to the distorted photo showing a seemingly portly Romo trudging onto the field for the first day of training camp is funny but preposterous. The QB appears to weigh about 280 in the shot.
“Granted, if I was that big, we would have to have some talks,” Romo said with a smile. “But I think I will be alright.”MORE NEWS: Denton Police Mourning Passing Of Detective Rodney Mooneyham To COVID
