Tony Romo OK if Cowboys draft a QB
IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys have four quarterbacks on the roster: Tony Romo, Kyle Orton, Stephen McGee and Rudy Carpenter.
The Cowboys haven't ruled out drafting another one, but it doesn't appear that will happen.
If the Cowboys do draft a quarterback, the No. 1 guy has no problem with it.
"Nothing is up to me in any way," Romo said Tuesday. "I think the organization probably feels comfortable with what we have. If they get a guy, that’ll be fine. It’s all about the progression of different things. We just need to get guys that help our team, if a young guy can ever help you."
The development of McGee has been questioned by some outside Valley Ranch. His skill set screams he's just a No. 3 and if he had improved some, maybe the Cowboys wouldn't have signed Orton in free agency.
But the Cowboys have always employed a veteran backup behind Romo: Brad Johnson, Jon Kitna and now Orton have been No. 2 QBs. Even when Romo took over the starting job, the man he replaced was veteran Drew Bledsoe.
"I think Stephen has done a great job for us," Romo said. "He’s continued to develop as a player and he’s got a bright future. I think Kyle gives us great stability at the position. We’re going to be fine."
