Jason Witten, who spent Sunday driving the pace car at the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway before heading to AT&T Stadium to take in the NCAA Basketball Championship with Tony Romo, Jason Garrett, Jerry Jones and a couple ex-presidents among others, says the Cowboys are coming into the 2014 season with a bit of a chip on their shoulder.
This chip won’t likely do much good if Romo isn’t healthy, of course, but Witten believes his pal is “right on track” in his rehab from back surgery and poised for a great season.
“Seems like he’s excited to get back and get healthy,” Witten said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “And I think all of us are eager to get going. I can’t speak for him, but I think everything’s on track. We’re excited for the offseason. We have a lot to prove. We know exactly what we have to do.”
Romo has suffered some disappointment this offseason but, thankfully, it had nothing to do with football. Rather, it had everything to do with the University of Wisconsin basketball team losing in the Final Four.
“He was pulling for Wisconsin pretty hard, being from there,” Witten said. “What a game, man. You could tell a lot of people in his family were cheering for Wisconsin.”
