Tony Romo/Jerry Jones meeting expected “sooner than later”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last weekend that no decision has been made about the future of quarterback Tony Romo, who is not expected to be back with the team to serve as a backup to Dak Prescott again in the 2017 season.

The new league year is rapidly approaching and it would seem to be an impetus for the Cowboys to make a move so that they can set themselves up to make other moves that will impact the team that takes the field come September. Executive vice president Stephen Jones said no meeting has been scheduled between his father and Romo or his agents during this week’s Scouting Combine, but that it shouldn’t be long before it happens.

“I would say it’s going to come,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I think Jerry’s going to be due to meet with him sooner than later, but I wouldn’t say there’s a definitive meeting as of yet.”

Jones went on to talk about how much Romo has meant to the franchise, something that’s been a frequent refrain since the back injury that opened the door for Prescott last summer without changing the fact that a parting of the ways is the most realistic way for things to play out in the coming days.

  1. Let the man go already. You owe him that, if not a lot more. I hope for his sake he retires, but if he wants to continue at least let him make his own decision where he wants to play. Stop toying with the man’s future. Loved to “hate” you, Tony. You were always a class act and a great qb. From a Giants fan.

  2. Get it done!!! I want to know what 2nd team I will be cheering on next season, and will continue to do so, until Tony hangs ’em up 🙁 With the 3rd highest passer rating in NFL history, I so want Romo to get his ring, as a STARTER!!!!!!! (& I don’t care who he beats to get it)

  3. Couldn’t agree more…dude left everything out on the field and only received the criticism he did because of who he played for….Jerry’s years of poor talent acquisition is going to kept him from winning multiple super bowls for the Cowboys. Damn shame.

    Go Cowboys…hopefully Romo’s new team makes it to the super bowl to face us.

  4. If Romo wants a ring, maybe he should follow the proven route. Sign with the Patriots. If Belichick trades Garappolo, he might be looking for another back up.

  5. Update Romo got hurt on way to the meeting out for the year. Romo has been a really good QB (regular season) for a long time. He has made a great deal of money. Hang up the cleats while you can still play golf!

    “Get his ring”? The guy is 2-6 in the postseason….. he’s not going to sniff a ring

  7. Geez Jerry, release him already or not because you and Romo are such drama queens, maybe you belong together. Romo never gonna get a ring. Super choker in the playoffs.

    Really? It’s not like this issue just came up. Looks like the Cowboys are as dumb as the Vikings here. They didn’t know what they were going to do with AP but, everyone and their dog knew that they were going to release him. JJ is either messing with Romo or he’s an idiot. You probably know which one it is.

  9. I agree he should hang them up, imagine how much pain he’s going to be in when he’s 50.
