Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently told the media that he wants to see Tony Romo work as hard as Peyton Manning and be more involved in their offensive game plan.
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Romo has been involved in the game plans.
“I’ve always felt like Tony was very involved in the process of the plays and our scheme, how we attacked,” Witten said. “I think in any organization where you have an elite quarterback like that, you want him to feel comfortable. I think that’s something we’ve always tried to do, and it sounds like we’re going to continue to do that.”
Witten says no one has ever been concerned over Romo’s work ethic.
“Sometimes maybe more is made of that than it is,” Witten said. “I know he understands the expectations to play that position, probably even more so now after the contract than ever before. I think that’s something he embraces and says, ‘Hey, let’s get this started.’ I think we’re all excited. But we all know at this point, our actions will speak a lot louder than anything we say or talk about.”
