With the Cowboys making an earlier than expected postseason exit, the talks have shifted quickly to the future of veteran QB Tony Romo.
The injury-plagued former starter finds his future with Dallas hanging in the balance as Dak Prescott seems to have the starting job firmly in hand for the foreseeable future.
Team owner Jerry Jones is making it clear that the Cowboys will not publicly discuss Romo at this time; choosing to handle the delicate issue internally first. Via Drew Davidson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram at the Senior Bowl, Jones made the following statement(s):
I’m not going to get into that at all. We’re at a juncture now that, we need to just cool it in our public conversations about what we’re going to be doing or not doing there with Tony.
Last week, Cowboys exec Stephen Jones made it clear that the situation will be worked out between Jerry and Romo.
