Work Stoppage or No, Romo Plans On Practicing



    Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo will begin working out again once he has fully recovered from a fractured clavicle, regardless of whether or not these practices are officially sanctioned by the NFL.

    Romo told reporters Sunday that he plans on organizing practices for he and his teammates if the labor situation leads to a cancellation of OTAs; the collective bargaining agreement currently in place is set to expire on March 4, and there’s been little to suggest that the owners and players’ association will be able to hammer out a new CBA by then, meaning that the future is murky.

    "Offseasons are very important and we'll get a lot of guys committed," Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. "A lot of guys are on board. And we're going to get even more. I'll get the guys together on my own and I'll make sure we don't miss a lot. Hopefully, we'll get a big jump on some other teams just by making this something that I get with the guys and do on a weekly basis.

    "I'll get with the guys and tell them the importance of it. We'll make them get out there. It will be fun."
