Don’t misunderstand the Dallas Cowboys’ position on wanting to give Tony Romo a contract extension. It’s not only being discussed because the Cowboys will gain valuable and much-needed salary cap space.

Stephen Jones, the team’s executive vice president, said Wednesday that the franchise would like to give Romo an extension to “reward” someone they consider to be a “great quarterback.”

“I think on this particular situation with Tony is we think we have a great quarterback and we want him to be our quarterback here for the next 4-5 years,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “We’re fortunate that we have a really good quarterback, if not a great one. He deserves to be paid. He’s in the last year of his contract. Our goal is to not let our quarterback run out of contract. We have a good one here and we want to reward him.

“At the same time, when you have a good one and you’re fortunate enough to have a good one then he’s going to take up the biggest part of your cap space, so you have to be partners with one another and you have to do things. No one wants to win more, no one wants to have success more than Tony. He knows in order to do that we have to manage our cap and he plays a big part in that because the percentage of the cap that he takes.

“He wants good players around him and we want to put great players around him. And that’s what we intend to do.”

Cowboys notes: Tony Romo cleared for team’s first practice on Sunday

ARLINGTON — The Dallas Cowboys will open practice Sunday with Tony Romo under center. Romo returns after having a cyst removed from his back, a procedure that kept him on the sideline during the team’s off-season practices.

“He feels good. He looks good,” owner Jerry Jones said Thursday during the team’s free coaching clinic at Cowboys Stadium. “He’s uniquely out running mountains right now in the West, so he’s getting himself physically in shape. He’s never thrown a lot in the off-season at all. This has always been a time that he wanted to rest his arm. I know his weight is right and feel he’ll be in shape and ready to go.”

Dr. Drew Dossett, a spine specialist for the Cowboys, removed the cyst from Romo’s back in April. Backup Kyle Orton took the first-team snaps while Romo rehabbed from the surgery.

Romo, 33, started some light throwing on the side during the Cowboys’ final minicamp practice last month. He said then that he would be ready to go for training camp.

“We believe Tony will be ready to play,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “It seems like he’s in good shape. … He’s getting himself ready to go. A lot of different guys have different training techniques getting themselves ready for training camp. Tony works very hard. He’s worked very hard in his rehab coming back from the microprocedure that he had in the spring. He’s excited and ready to go.”

Romo, 17-21 over the past three seasons, signed a six-year, $108 million contract extension March 29.

Romo cautious heading into 2013
July 16, 2013 11:24 pm • PETER JACKEL pjackel@journaltimes.com


In 1998, he was a freshman quarterback at Eastern Illinois University who still had designs of also playing college basketball.

In 2003, he was a rookie free agent with the Dallas Cowboys who worked tirelessly over the next three years to convince initially skeptical owner Jerry Jones that he possessed the mojo to succeed.

And in 2013, Tony Romo might just be the most intriguing player in the NFL.

Call the 1998 Burlington High School graduate a lightning rod for controversy for a refreshing reason. During an offseason that has seen the arrests of more than 30 NFL players, this controversy is based simply on Romo’s personal success not translating into Super Bowl championships so far.

That spotlight has intensified to overwhelming proportions these days because Romo happens to earn his living in an especially football-crazed state and draws his paychecks from a franchise with a New York Yankees-like heritage.

There are two Romo camps. His supporters say he’s the fifth-rated quarterback in NFL history behind only Aaron Rodgers, Steve Young, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. And that he’s passed for 25,737 yards and 177 touchdowns in just six-plus seasons. And that Jones obviously doesn’t believe Romo is the issue considering the billionaire owner just made a six-year, $108 million investment in his 33-year-old quarterback.
