DeMarcus Ware has plenty of faith in quarterback Tony Romo, but he’s also not shy about saying that it’s time for the veteran to step up, after signing a landmark six-year, $108 million extension last week--an opinion that Ware shares, we’d imagine, with more than a few fans in Dallas.
“I feel like everybody is deserving to whatever is given to him, but at the end of the day, to me it’s put up or shut up,” Ware told SiriusXM’s NFL Radio, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m just being straight-up honest with you. Get out there and be productive, and that’s with any player.
“Whatever they get, they’re deserving of it. You just got to get out there and play and I know he can be and will be the quarterback that is going to be the quarterback that is going to take us to the next level.”
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones expressed a similar opinion after Romo signed the deal, which includes $55 million in guaranteed money. With the deal, Romo became the 15th $100 million man in NFL history and the highest paid player in he history of the Cowboys.
