LEADING TEAMMATES: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo remains involved in OTA’s

A lot was said (and implied) last week about Tony Romo’s lack of participation in the teams OTA’s. The fact is, Romo was very involved in the activities with coaches and teammates … both on the practice fields and in the clubs meeting rooms.

IRVING, Texas – Tony Romo wants to take part in the June 11-13 mini-camp.

Romo had a small cyst removed from his back in April and has been limited in his conditioning work for most of the offseason. He has only recently done some light jogging to go with work on the bike and elliptical machines. He has not done any sprinting.

Over the next few weeks, he will be able to make progress in his conditioning to get on the field for full-speed practices.

Romo’s experience has been touted for his ability to be more involved with the game planning and instillation means so much, then OTA’s in May will not be a great deal of help.

Let him work through some individual drills the way DeMarcus Ware is doing. Ware is coming off major shoulder surgery. He could take part in full practices if necessary, but the Cowboys are being conservative with his comeback.

There are $108 million reasons why the Cowboys must do the same with Romo.
