Tony Romo planning more work
|ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer explains his idea of extending Tony Romo's contract right now. |
The work will have to be without the help of coaches and run, in effect, like the practices the players held last year during the lockout in Southlake. This time, however, they can be at Valley Ranch. Most of the players got together before the official beginning of the offseason program on April 16 for workouts.
“You’re lifting, running, throwing, studying tape,” Romo said. “For my position, that’s always how you do it. It doesn’t stop. It’s year round.”
Romo will be joined by the quarterbacks, rookies and injured players at Valley Ranch for the first portion of training camp July 25. The first full-squad workout in Oxnard, Calif., will be held July 30.
Romo came away impressed with the work the Cowboys put in during the nine organized team activities and three minicamp practices.
“We got a lot of new stuff in and yet at the same token we wanted to perfect some of the things we hope that will pay big dividends this year and had a lot of repetitions,” Romo said. “I think we got a lot accomplished. The effort was outstanding. The competitive vibe every day, you could tell the guys are excited and want to get better. That’s all you can ask for. It’s been a great offseason for us, but we have to keep it going. It’s not over yet.”
