Locked out of team facilities, NFL players are left to their own devices during the labor impasse to organize themselves in preparation for an uncertain 2011 football season. For Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, this means getting the Cowboys together for workouts.
Romo told reporters late in the season that he planned on doing this if a lockout went into effect--of course, it did, and according to backup quarterback Stephen McGee, Romo will make good on his comments. McGee told reporters at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes event in Amarillo, where he was a guest speaker, that Romo and tight end Jason Witten would lead the workouts.
“We are going to find a way to get work in,” McGee told the Amarillo Globe-News, via the Dallas Morning News. “The off-season work is always very important even if it's just doing light 7-on-7s to get refreshed. The playbooks are really thick in the NFL. There's a lot of work that needs to be done.
“There's going to be an NFL season. There's got to be.”
