The Dallas Cowboys arrived in Oxnard, California on Saturday for their annual training camp with the absence of one significant player.
For the first time in 15 years, the Cowboys will hold a training camp without Tony Romo.
It’s been approximately four months since the former franchise quarterback announced his new career as a top analyst for CBS Sports, but both his past and future football days remain a hot topic around the NFL.
Executive Vice President Stephen Jones admits that the idea of a training camp without Romo “hasn’t sunk in yet.”
“It’ll obviously be tough not having Tony there,” said Jones, via Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We’ll miss having him around.”
Jones went on to express his close relationship and excitement for the next chapter in Romo’s career.
“He’s fired up about his job, Jones said. “He’s putting a lot of work into it. But I’m sure [Romo not being at camp] will set in when we get there, not seeing No. 9 out there.
How is owner Jerry Jones adjusting to this change? He’s “a lot more comfortable” than he thought he would be.
Jerry has continuously showed support for his long-time friend and franchise starter and explains why he is also allowing Dak Prescott that same benefit.
“So that has everything to do with the year Dak had and more importantly the way Dak is approaching this year,” said Jerry, via SportsDay. “It is a really good feeling.”
As for broadcasting, how many Cowboys games can fans expect to see Tony Romo behind the booth?
The first game up is Week 9 when the Cowboys host the Chiefs in Arlington. The second CBS game for the season is Week 13 when the Cowboys host the Chargers on Thanksgiving. It is safe to say that fans will be seeing their former star quarterback call the traditional Cowboys Thanksgiving game. It’s a no-brainer.
Romo’s return to the NFL is sure to be epic.
