Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently explained why he never pursued Peyton Manning after the Colts released him a couple of years ago.
“I was so committed to Romo, so committed to his future,” Jerry Jones said Friday on KRLD-FM. “Of course, Peyton has been a friend for a long time and someone we respect a lot. There were a lot of moving parts during that particular time. The real reason it didn’t work out is because we are as committed as we are to Tony.”
Jones certainly showed us how much he values Tony Romo after he signed him to a six-year, $108 million contract this past offseason.
Jones made the right choice in sticking with Romo. If he had tried to bring in Manning it would have created a very uncomfortable situation with Romo. And there was no guarantee that Manning would have signed with the Dallas.
