Tony Romo: Out of the U.S. Open, Back to Organizing Workouts
Romo Shelves Golf Dream For Another Year, Back To Football
Tony Romo is organizing more team workouts after shooting an 81 in his U.S. Open qualifier and failing to advance.
Romo has been bringing as many players as he can to a secret location to run through drills in a minicamp situation.
"I don't want to say I expect more," Romo said. "I would say that's a great number for starting. We weren't sure what the number was going to be. I know I stressed the importance to everybody, to say the least. I'd say it was just a point we needed to make it important. The guys know that. The guys are committed. Do I hope we get 50 there? Absolutely. We're in contact with a couple of guys who have never been."
As he did last week, Romo did not want to divulge where and when the workouts were occurring. Nor would he discuss if players have taken out insurance to cover themselves in case of an injury. He said they do have athletic trainers on hand that are not affiliated with the Cowboys.
Romo does not want the media messing things up by over-analyzing these workouts, and he has a good point. Since I believe the media wants too much access to practices, it is safe to say I agree with Romo's assessment.
The offseason workouts and day-to-day practices are there for teaching and refinement. Even the portion of training camp practices open to the public often are over-analyzed.
With so little NFL news going on right now, the temptation to make something out of nothing could be too great for some reporters if they were allowed access to the workouts.
Dez Bryant is reported to be present, which is news considering how his offseason has gone, but other than that, it is just a bunch of guys trying to stay sharp.
