Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said that the unprecedented, six-year, $108 million extension given to quarterback Tony Romo came with the caveat that Romo would be expected to spend “Peyton Manning-esque” time at Valley Ranch.
But according to head coach Jason Garrett, the amount of time Romo spends at Valley Ranch has never been a concern.
“I think Tony Romo is a great leader for our football team,” said Garrett, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s been a guy who’s always been very committed to what we’re doing. And it’s something that we’ve always wanted as coaches, you want your quarterback to be involved. We’ve always felt like he’s done that and he’ll continue to do that going forward.”
