    Last week, Jerry Jones said that after signing an unprecedented, six-year, $108 million extension, Tony Romo would be expected to spend more time--Peyton Manning-esque time--at Valley Ranch, as well as be more involved with game-planning. Jones mentioned that this wasn’t to suggest that Romo hadn’t been spending enough time at Valley Ranch before, but it was enough to spark a bit of a debate.

    According to Romo’s good pal and tight end Jason Witten, however, Romo’s commitment has never been in question--and he can’t imagine Romo’s involvement in the offense could be increased all that much.

    "I've always felt like Tony was very involved in the process of the plays and our scheme, how we attacked," Witten said, per ESPN Dallas. "I think in any organization where you have an elite quarterback like that, you want him to feel comfortable. I think that's something we've always tried to do, and it sounds like we're going to continue to do that."
