Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo knows that the team is going into the 2016 NFL Draft looking for a quarterback, and as long as it’s the right pick at the time, Romo’s fine with that.
“We're going to evaluate everybody and the organization is going to look at who to take and they're going to take the best player,” said Romo, who will be 36 when training camp opens next year, per ESPN Dallas. “If the best player there is a quarterback, then that's what our team needs.”
The four-time Pro Bowler is also glad having to make such decisions isn’t part of his job description.

“Our team needs good players. That's what we need,” Romo said. “And if it's the best player at a different position … I'm just obviously a player on the football team and I don't have to make those decisions, and I'm glad. My job is go out and get better and make sure this team wins next year. And I'm going to do everything in my power to ensure that.”
Romo has been the Cowboys’ starting quarterback since midway through the 2006 season, but he appeared in just four games in 2015 due to two collarbone fractures. Since then, Jones has mentioned that finding a quarterback of the future will be a priority for the front office this offseason.
