Romo to be a “Maverick for a Day”

Maybe Tony Romo wouldn’t use the “R” word last week because he has one game left. In a different sport.

Via Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the former Cowboys quarterback will attend Tuesday’s regular-season home finale of the Dallas Mavericks — and he’ll wear a uniform and sit on the bench.

Romo won’t play, unfortunately. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Romo will participate in all pregame workouts, layup lines, etc.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently has been hinting at the addition of a “pass-first point guard.” Per Stein, Cuban was referring to Romo.

The Mavericks won’t make it to the playoffs for only the second time in Cuban’s 17 full seasons as the team’s owner.

    He’ll probably break his ankle going in for a layup.

    Romo is used to that.

    Pray that he won’t trip & fall in the lay up line & crack his back again … Come fall he will be doing his 1st CBS game in a full body cast.

    It would be cool if they put Romo in for a few minutes. The Mavs aren’t going anywhere this year anyway.

    “He’ll wear a uniform and sit on the bench. The same as if he was a Cowboy for a Year.

    If they put Romo in, he’d be sure to have some clutch turnovers late.

    Looks like Tony will start his broadcasting career on the bench.

    Feels just like home.

    Criticize Cuban all we want. He’s a great owner and the league is better with him in it.

    Tony has always been a Maverick

    That’s odd, I’ve heard him use the Redskins name before, maybe he was just already working on being more PC to satisfy CBS

    Put him in. Give him a day 10 contract and send someone on the roster to the d-league. Start him against the warriors. I would pay decent money to watch that.

    As a Mavs fan they suck and would be the most talked about thing for the Mavs all year if Romo came in. Not like any of our guards have played any better

    Great for Dallas fans; Romo has been great for the Cowboys after such a mixed bag of QB’s since Aikman. Unfortunately, circumstances didn’t allow him further success. Just goes to show how amazing it is to have QB’s be successful WITH longevity (i.e. Big Ben, Eli, Payton, Brady, Brees etc.).

    So cute. Typical, soft Romo! Never gets mad.

    Mark Cuban is a pretty awesome man. He keeps it interesting. They should let Romo get into the game for a few minutes.

    Not going anywhere….just like the Cowboys

    Why all the fuss for a guy with 2 playoff wins in 15 years?
