After missing out on the last two offseasons due to back issues, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is just happy to be on the field in May.
“I’m enjoying the grind,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It’s been good. It’s been hard work. It’s been an appreciation for understanding where you’re at, and I think that it’s good to feel like you’re improving physically and not just maintaining. That’s a positive.”
Now the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, Scott Linehan came to the team under the title of passing game coordinator last year, meaning this is his first offseason working with Romo. Obviously, Linehan is able to get a lot more accomplished with his starting quarterback on the field.
“It’s night and day for me as far as what we are able to accomplish with our first group,’’ Linehan said. “For him to be able to be out there and work his reps with the first group is little more normal, so to speak. It’s going to be much more beneficial for us, especially early in the year and through training camp and getting ready for the opener.”
