Days before April’s draft, the 33-year-old Romo underwent the knife to have a non-cancerous cyst removed from his back.
Throwing 177 touchdowns, against 91 interceptions, for 25,737 yards since debuting in 2006, the 6-foot-2, 230 pound Romo and Dallas agreed to a six-year contract extension worth $108 million in March.
Although considered a “minor” procedure, any back injury is worrisome and the three-time Pro Bowl selection must at least guide Dallas to their first playoff appearance since 2009 this autumn.
Picked 19 times and somewhat causing Dallas’ mediocre 8-8 finish in the NFC East, Romo is the primary man responsible for getting Jerry Jones “some glory hole.”
Without an extremely impressive campaign on the gridiron, Dallas Cowboys fans will find Tony Romo to be more than “kind of annoying.”by
