Murray: Cowboys Have Romo's Back

Quarterback Tony Romo signed a six-year, $108 million extension this offseason



    The Dallas Cowboys are happy for quarterback Tony Romo, who got an unprecedented six-year, $108 million extension this offseason.

    Really, it would be more newsworthy if someone wasn’t happy about the deal, but since it’s done, starting running back DeMarco Murray was asked about it in his appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” on Wednesday--and he says none of the Cowboys are resentful of the deal that locked Romo up for, most likely, the rest of his NFL career.

    Further, Murray said that Romo’s harshest critic--and he has plenty of harsh critics--is Romo.

    “I think when you look at Romo, no one has higher expectations for him on this team than Tony Romo,” Murray said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I can tell you right now, every guy is behind Romo and every guy has his back, from the undrafted guys to the No. 1 starting tackles or anyone. Yeah, he signed a big contract. It’s time for not only him but it’s time for us as a team to be cohesive and us as a team to win some games up there.”
