Tony Romo will participate in the offseason program much more this year.
Romo's offseason work was limited the last two years by back surgeries. Now he's as healthy as he's been in recent memory even though he turned 35 in April. That's good news for the Cowboys, who may have to rely on Romo for more volume now that DeMarco Murray is gone. Romo was wildly efficient last year, finishing as fantasy's No. 11 QB despite ranking 23rd in pass attempts. May 14 - 9:51 AM

Tony Romo believes the Cowboys' stellar offensive line could extend his career.

"When you have a good offensive line like we do the thought definitely crosses your mind to ensure you do everything possible to play longer than maybe what you had envisioned," Romo said. Despite turning 35 in April, the Cowboys still believe they have a five-year window to win a Super Bowl with Romo. Romo took just 30 sacks last season.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports Tony Romo has agreed to restructure his contract, clearing "nearly" $13 million in cap space for the Cowboys.

Prior to this move, the Cowboys were right up against the cap with ILB Rolando McClain's new one-year, $3 million deal set to hit the books. Romo is likely converting most of his $17 million salary into a "signing" bonus. Romo previously said he'd take a pay cut so Dallas could re-sign DeMarco Murray. Maybe he'd do the same for an Adrian Peterson addition, though that seems unlikely at this point.

Jerry Jones is operating under the assumption Tony Romo has a five-year window left.

Romo will turn 35 in April, has had back surgeries in each of the previous two offseasons and fractured his back during Week 8 of last year. Of course, Jerry is going to be optimistic with his franchise quarterback. The Cowboys have not invested at all in developing quarterback talent behind Romo, who has only missed two games in the last four seasons.

Tony Romo completed 15-of-19 throws for 191 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

He absorbed four sacks. The Cowboys stayed true to their run-game commitment in this one, but were edged out 26-21 as Aaron Rodgers' second-half surge proved too much for Dallas to overcome. Romo put a bow on his age-34 campaign by leading the NFL in regular season completion rate (69.9), touchdown rate (7.8), yards per attempt (8.5), and passer rating (113.2). Romo turns 35 in April. He has clearly lost something off his fastball, but should continue to flirt with QB1 numbers in 2015 as a mid- to later-round choice in fantasy drafts.
Jan 11 - 4:35 PM

Tony Romo completed 19-of-31 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' Wild Card Round win over the Lions, 24-20.

The Lions' defensive front dominated the ballyhooed Cowboys offensive line early, hitting Romo a whopping eight times in the first 16 minutes. Dallas' offense sputtered until Romo found Terrance Williams streaking up the seam for a 76-yard touchdown, giving the Cowboys their first points late in the second quarter. Romo rallied back from the big deficit, engineering two touchdown drives in the second half and capping the second with an eight-yard score to Williams again. On an absolute tear, Romo will enter a Divisional Round clash with the Packers working on a 14:1 TD-to-INT ratio over his last five games.
Jan 4 - 7:49 PM

Tony Romo completed 22-of-34 passes for 299 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Cowboys' 44-17, Week 17 shellacking of the Redskins.

With his latest massive day, Romo closes the book on the regular season the owner of a 34:9 TD:INT ratio and 3,705 yards passing. The scores are Romo's most since 2007, while his 69.8 completion percentage is a new career best. Romo won't win the league MVP, but he at least deserves to be in the conversation. Romo is in search of his second career playoff victory.

Tony Romo (back) is active and starting for Week 17.

The Cowboys are essentially locked into the No. 3 seed, but appear poised to play their starters for at least a half against the Redskins. Inactive for the Cowboys are ILB Rolando McClain, DT Josh Brent, RT Doug Free, QB Dustin Vaughan, S Jakar Hamilton, LB Dekoda Watson and OT Donald Hawkins.

The Cowboys plan to play their starters in Sunday's game against the Redskins.

In theory, the Cowboys are still in the mix for a first-round bye, but they would need a series of inexplicable events to unfold. That means that, for all intents and purposes, they're locked into the No. 3 seed and don't have a ton to play for against Washington. We wouldn't be surprised if Tony Romo played only 2-3 quarters, and if DeMarco Murray (hand) was limited even further.

Tony Romo completed 18-of-20 passes for 218 yards and four touchdowns in the Cowboys' NFC East clinching win Week 16 against the Colts

The Colts could do nothing to stop Romo, who at one point completed 16 straight passes. Indianapolis was able to hit Romo once all game, and with basically unlimited time Romo was able to pick apart their secondary, setting a club record with a 90 percent completion percentage. Romo now has 10 touchdown passes and zero interceptions in December. The Cowboys still have an outside shot at a first-round bye, but they could choose to limit Romo in the regular season finale against Washington.

Tony Romo completed 22-of-31 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns in Dallas' Week 15 win over the Eagles.

All three of his touchdowns went to Dez Bryant. Romo took advantage of Bryant being matched up with Eagles CB Bradley Fletcher, targeting him seven times. He now has a 6:0 TD/INT ratio in two December starts and will remain a QB1 in Week 16. The win puts the Cowboys in the driver seat for the NFC East.

Updating an earlier item, Tony Romo isn't playing through a broken rib.

The rib revelation came from ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins, but he actually just misinterpreted an NFL Network interview. Either way, Romo looked a bit ginger on Thursday evening, but has 10 days to heal up for Dallas' Week 15 trip to Philadelphia. He's a locked-in QB1.

Tony Romo completed 21-of-26 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns in Dallas' Week 14 win over the Bears.

For the second-straight week, Romo seemed to lack his normal flexibility, and may have been favoring his troublesome back. It didn't matter against the woeful Bears, however, as he often found uncovered pass catchers for easy gains. The three-score effort was Romo's third in four starts, and fifth of the season. Although Romo struggled against the Eagles on Thanksgiving, he'll be a high-end QB1 for the teams' Week 15 showdown in Philadelphia.

Tony Romo (back) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

The Cowboys are playing the Bears at Soldier Field on Thursday night, so they held a practice Monday. Romo is in no danger of missing, but his effectiveness is in question after his passes lacked zip in Dallas' Thanksgiving loss.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 04:27:00 PM

Tony Romo completed 18-of-29 passes for 199 yards with two interceptions in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Romo struggled to move the offense despite a matchup with an Eagles defense that allowed 345 yards to Zach Mettenberger last week. Both of his interceptions came on bad underthrows, and he had a third pick overturned by defensive holding. Romo finished without a touchdown for just the first time in 38 games. He's on pace for 3,624 yards with and a 29:11 TD/INT ratio this season. Romo will be a back-end QB1 against Chicago's bottom-five secondary in Week 14.
