Jason Garrett met with the media this week at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and while the NFL Draft is supposed to be the focus of these things, here, the focus was largely on the future of Tony Romo.
The Dallas Cowboys coach was asked about his relationship with Romo, with whom he’s been very close in the past.
“I don’t want to comment too much on that,” Garrett said, in a comment that speaks volumes.
“I haven’t spoke to Tony very much this off-season but I think that has a lot to do with we’re coaching the Pro Bowl, a lot of different things we’re doing as a coaching staff. He’s got a new little baby on the way so he’s busy with that.’’
The truth is, the competitor in Romo is rubbed wrong by the club’s decision to hand his team to Dak Prescott. The decision hasn’t impacted his relationship with the Joneses. But suffice to say Tony and Jason haven’t been hanging out together at college basketball games, as they did as recently as last offseason.
CHQ reported earlier this week that Romo is now a top target of the Denver Broncos.
Garrett did finally get around to the rest of the roster (we've got all the cap-related moves and the free-agency ideas, from our perspective, here) and the Combine, too. See the visit in its entirely below:
