Going on his eighth full season as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo isn’t ready to reflect on his career just yet. There’ll be plenty of time for that when he’s done playing.
For now, Romo told NFL Media’s Desmond Purnell this week, the Cowboys signal caller believes he needs to be better for his team--the same mindset with which he approaches every offseason.
"You know I'm not into the looking back kind of thing," Romo said, per NFL.com. "You know when I'm done playing I'll do that but right now it's about improving and I'm not done growing as a football player, I have to keep getting better. If I don't get better, it doesn't help our football team. We weren't good enough before and it just means that I have to be a better player to help this team get to where we are trying to go and that's my ultimate goal each year."
Romo has been limited through OTAs, as he continues to recover from offseason back surgery, and will continue to be limited at the team’s mandatory mini-camp next week. But Romo is optimistic that he’ll be ready to participate fully when training camp opens next month.
