Agreeing to a six-year contract extension worth $108 million with Dallas in March, the 33-year-old expects to be medically cleared by June’s mandatory minicamp.
Throwing 177 touchdowns, against 91 interceptions, for 25,737 yards since debuting in 2006, the 6-foot-2, 230 pound Romo will be more scrutinized than ever this season.
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.”
As the undisputed, and very wealthy, leader of “America’s Team,” Tony Romo needs to thrive from the outset in the “Big D.”by
