The Dallas Cowboys are just four days into training camp practices and quarterback Tony Romo already likes what he’s seeing.
In a SiriusXM NFL Radio interview with FOXSports1’s Alex Marvez and co-host Gil Brandt, Romo says this year’s Cowboys team is the “most complete team” he’s been on in his 11 seasons in Dallas. If Romo’s assessment is correct, that would mean this year’s Cowboys team is more talented than the group that posted an NFC best 13-3 record in 2007. Romo’s belief stems from what he’s seen from the players and coaching staff this offseason and is confident in their ability to take a step forward this season.
“We went through a phase where we kind of had to reshuffle some things,” Romo said. “Some of the older guys were going out and newer guys were coming in. Now, we’re kind of getting to where these guys have played and been in the system a little bit.
“I’m excited where this team is at right now. I think this team can compete at a very high level for the next three to five years for sure.”
The Cowboys are looking to return to the postseason for the first time in four years. Romo will have more of a say in the direction of the offense this year and will be the key piece for Dallas if they are able to live up to Romo’s own expectations this season.
