Tony Romo will be taking on new responsibilities this season, according to Jerry Jones:
That includes being a member of the scouting staff. Jerry Jones and Co approached Romo and asked him to watch tape of 2nd and 3rd round picks Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams to see if he liked them. That’s actually a concept I can get on board with… only… they did so on Friday of draft weekend, a day after the draft began… because, you know, there just isn’t enough time before the draft begins to dot all your “i’s” and cross your “t’s.”
Romo was apparently also possibly responsible for the selection of the Cowboys’ first round pick:
So I guess in addition to being the team’s QB, he’s also now the GM. Or co-GM? Not sure.
No word yet on if Romo will be Jerry Jones’ new eyeglass cleaner, or if he’ll be required to learn how to beatbox so Jerry can practice for his budding rap career. I would advise against having him hold on field goal attempts though.
Please live to be 200, Jerry Jones.
