Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been doing his best to bring the team together this offseason and has been the main guy in charge of player led workouts. This past week, 45 players showed up to the workouts according to Romo.
“[Romo] has done a good job of leading it, but a lot of other guys, too, are being responsible for their group — Marc Colombo and [Keith] Brooking and Bradie James and DeMarcus [Ware]. There are so many guys. It’s really an opportunity for us as leaders to take our team to another level,” said tight end Jason Witten. “It’s been good from the standpoint of there’s no distractions. It’s go in and go to work and get better.”
There is only one problem. Not a single rookie has attended the workouts.
Tony Romo has reached out to the rookies to gage interest in attending the workouts, however, none have accepted his offer. It’s kind of shocking to see no young players taking advantage of this opportunity to pick apart their veteran teammates brains and become more familiar with them and their units schemes. Despite the lack of rookie presence, Romo is staying positive.
“I still have a firm belief that people who make the decisions will come to a conclusion here that will be a benefit for all parties,” Romo said. “To all the players, it’s obvious: We want to play football. We want to be out there, and we want to be doing what we love to do. I hope, and I expect that will happen.”
