Cowboys staying with Romo as holder

I'm sure Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo breathed a sigh of relief when the Cowboys released kicker Nick Folk and replaced him with Shaun Suisham because he thought his holding days might be over. And owner Jerry Jones seemed to back that up with comments on his weekly radio show on the club's flagship station, 105.3 FM.

But coach Wade Phillips announced Tuesday that Romo would remain the holder.

"Romo's the best holder right now and we have a new kicker," Phillips said late Tuesday afternoon. "Since we have a new kicker, I want everything to be as good as it can be."

Suisham will begin his comeback tour with the Cowboys against his old team, the Redskins, on Sunday night at FedEx.
