Romo took over the job midway through the season, after Nick Folk's struggles were attributed, at least in part, to the performance of first year holder and Pro Bowl punter, Mat McBriar. In an incontrovertible show of leadership, Romo stepped into the role out of necessity.
Obviously, McBriar was only a small part of the problem, and Folk was eventually cut; at any rate, Romo held the job through the end of the season.
But with an entire off-season to sort it out, coaches will look to settle the issue in a manner that would allow the Pro Bowl quarterback to concentrate solely on, you know, quarterbacking. This idea was at the heart of DeCamillis's recent remarks, per ESPNDallas.com.
"Tony did a nice job when he came in,” said DeCamillis. “We want to get that situation handled as much as possible. We like for [Romo] not to be the holder."
