What to ask Tony Romo?
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- At some point during the 1 p.m. hour, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is scheduled to speak with reporters for the first time this offseason.
Here's what we're looking to talk about with Romo:
The contract. What does Romo feel about signing a $108 million deal? Does he feel more pressure to bring a Super Bowl title to North Texas?
More power with the front office. After Romo signed the contract, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said his quarterback will spend more time at Valley Ranch and have more of a say with the play calling and the game planning. Does this matter to Romo? Has he always been that involved in the game planning? The Cowboys even provided Romo with some game film of prospective draft picks. Is that fair to the rest of the team? Does Romo feel he should be put in this position?
Health. Romo isn't participating in the OTA after he underwent surgery last month to have a cyst removed from his back. The cyst has limited Romo's ability to participate in the offseason programs and develop chemistry with the young receivers and continue to work with veterans such as Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Dwayne Harris. When did the cyst develop? The media has been told it's not serious. But it's serious enough that after having surgery last month he can't participate for three weeks.
What about you? What do you think reporters should be asking Romo today? If you have any questions, let us know. Maybe we'll ask him.
