Emmitt Likes Romo Extension

Emmitt Smith believes extending Tony Romo was the right move for Dallas

Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith believes his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, did the right thing when they gave quarterback Tony Romo an unprecedented, six-year, $108 million extension.

"I think they did the right thing retaining him, because you can't find anyone better out there," Smith said, per ESPN Dallas. "Then again, it's not really up to me to give that kind of money. I only have so much time to focus on such things!"

Like just about everyone who counts themselves as a Cowboys fan though, Smith believes the offensive line could be a bit better.

"I think Romo is a good quarterback. He has receivers that can make plays. And the running game also can be effective," Smith said. "I just think they need more help with the supporting cast up front. They need better blocking and better protection. I think Jerry Jones and the family have all that covered."
