Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has spent a lot of time playing golf this offseason, but that doesn’t mean his focus is off football.
In fact, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware told ESPN Radio in Dallas that seeing Romo emerge as the Cowboys’ clear leader, and the man who organized the team’s lockout activities, has been a positive aspect of the lockout.
“I did see something really good that came out of it,” Ware said, via Sports Radio Interviews. “Nobody had to work out. Nobody had to go out and do the OTAs or anything like that, but Romo took on that leadership role and said, ‘Guys we’ve got to get together.’ . . . Only one guy has really taken on that role of doing all that and that was Romo.”
Ware says he shares the widespread expectations that the Cowboys will have practices run by the coaches soon.
“I think everything is progressing,” Ware said. “The media’s saying everything’s progressing. Everybody else is saying it’s progressing slowly. I’m just ready to play.”
