Jerry Jones Says “No” Decision Yet Regarding Romo’s Future in Dallas | Dallas Cowboys

DALLAS – One of the last people to walk the “Blue Carpet” for Saturday night’s 25-year reunion of the 1992 Super Bowl team, owner/GM Jerry Jones was needed on the stage as the celebratory dinner was about to start.

Yet, he was having too much fun talking about the memories and the players and even his somewhat rocky-relationship with former coach Jimmy Johnson, who was also in attendance. 

But there was one topic that got Jones to move along, and that was the expected Tony Romo question.

Jones certainly didn’t want to upstage the charity event that brought so many familiar faces back to Dallas for one night. But he also said there is no update on the Romo front.

When asked if he has spoken to Romo about his situation and/or if a decision has been made, Jones was quick and blunt.

“No … no” he said as he politely ended his media session and walked towards the reception area.

If the Cowboys have made a decision, Jones wasn’t about to reveal those plans here Saturday night at Gilley’s for this event.

While Jerry Jones chose not to talk about Romo, his former coach didn’t mind.

Johnson, a studio analyst for Fox, says he agreed with the decision to keep Dak Prescott as the starter even when Romo returned, but did say the veteran has plenty left in the tank.

“I’m confident Tony Romo can win games in this league,” Johnson said. “He’s still a really good quarterback. So wherever he goes, I think he’s very capable of winning.”

Hall of Famer Roger Staubach agreed, stating both quarterbacks are worthy of the starting.

“I think Dak is ready to take over and lead this team,” Staubach said. “But I also think Tony can as well. They’re both really good quarterbacks. They’ve got some great players around them, too.”

Romo is scheduled to count nearly $25 million against the 2017 salary cap, the largest figure for any quarterback in the NFL.

The Cowboys will likely try and entertain trade offers from other teams. If he is traded, or simply released before June 1, the Cowboys will save $5.1 million against the cap.

If they release Romo and designate him as a post-June 1 cut, he would only count $10.7 million this year and $8.9 million next year. However, none of that would come off the Cowboys’ cap until June 2, so they would have to carry his near-$25 million cap charge until then, despite free agency starting on March 9.
