As we mentioned on Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is very confident his friend and quarterback Tony Romo will bounce back in 2016 after having his clavicle fractured twice last season.
Longtime Cowboys safety turned ESPN NFL analyst Darren Woodson believes Witten’s confidence is well-placed.
In Woodson’s mind, given that Romo is healthy, the pieces are in place for the 36-year-old to have a career year. These pieces include Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys’ first round selection, and Dez Bryant—who missed seven games a year ago with foot and ankle issues, but is expected to be ready to go by camp.
“That is not an overreaction,” Woodson said, per the Dallas Morning News. “The one thing about the Cowboys right now, they all know the chips are all in on this offense. They brought in Ezekiel Elliott, they want to run the ball consistently. Dez Bryant is going to have some one-on-one opportunities on the outside. I look to see Romo throw the ball down the field, make big plays for this offense. I think this may be his best... and he's biting at the bit, he's been wanting to get back on the field since what happened last year. I think this will be one of his best seasons.”
