Romo Looking to “Leave Everything I Can on the Field”

At 34, Tony Romo is coming off surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is participating in this first round of OTAs on a limited basis, as he eases back into the grind after offseason back surgery. When he’s back fully, Romo intends on giving the only franchise he’s known everything he possibly can.

“I don’t go out to do anything other than to get myself healthy and play the best football that I can, and leave everything I can on the field,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “When I’m done with the Dallas Cowboys, I promise I will have left my entire body with that team. That’s the way you want it to be. That’s why you chase after, you’re so committed to what you’re doing, it’s important.”

After undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back in December, Romo has been quite optimistic about his immediate future. At 34, he recently predicted he’d play another five seasons in the NFL.

“You go out there and compete your butt off,” Romo said. “The guys who have been here the longest have been playing at the highest level the longest. That’s part of why I think you see a guy like Jason Witten or myself who have been able to continue to play.”
