Even when it's not football season, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo can't catch a break.

Romo and Cowboys tight end Jason Witten were spotted in Dallas owner Jerry Jones' suite at the 2014 NCAA championship game. They were joined by the likes of Jones, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and others.

Their presence seemed innocent enough, but one former Cowboys playerMarcus Spearswasn't a fan of the sight:

It doesn't look like there was much room for anyone else.

Spears went on 105.3 The Fan’s New School with Shan & RJ on Tuesday morning to explain his thoughts, via CBS DFW (h/t ProFootballTalk): 

You understand in this league that your star players are going to have things come their way that most guys don’t. I’m not benign to think that. I’ve had opportunities that some guys didn’t have…The team aspect has always been first to me. That’s just the bottom line. I don’t know if it sends the right message when your head coach is hanging out with one particular guy.

Spears could just be giving his opinion, but he could also be sharing the thoughts of those in the locker room. The 31-year-old played for Dallas from 2005 to 2012 but has since retired.

This isn't the first time that Romo and Garrett were out in public together this offseason. The quarterback and the coach also visited Duke earlier this year.
