Dallas Doesn't Need A New QB



Everywhere I go, someone is calling on the Cowboys to use a premium draft pick for a new starting quarterback.

I wonder if NE and Denver face these question?

My guess is they don't, because the one's calling for an new QB are the same ones who hate Romo and this is just the latest reason. The old one about him sucking won't work any more, so just the latest.

The Cowboys swear Tony Romo will be sufficiently healed from back surgery to participate well before training camp.

But theyíre making contingency plans, just in case.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys worked out former Eagles quarterback Mike Kafka Thursday, along with a pair of wide receivers. None of them were signed at this point, but the looking is interesting.

Kafka hasnít played since 2012, after being cut by the Jaguars in preseason this year and failing to latch on anywhere else. But the Cowboys have just one healthy quarterback at the moment (Kyle Orton), and would ostensibly need someone else to throw in OTAs if Romo isnít ready by then.

The receivers getting a workout were former Arena Leaguers Braylon Bell and Maurice Williams.

According to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, Romo is ready to progress to the next step of his rehab:

ď
Tony Romo has made excellent progress and will soon move into the next stage of his rehabilitation, sources said.

The Cowboys quarterback had surgery to relieve the pressure of a herniated disk on Dec. 27, two days before the team ended the regular season with a loss to Philadelphia. Basic core and stabilization exercises are the first step in the rehab process.

These isometrics, which focus on building flexibility and strength in the lower back with little to no movement of the spine, are common in the first six weeks after back surgery. Romo is said to be feeling good and doing well with the exercises, particularly over the last four weeks.

Working out a back up or third string QB is one thing, but using a high draft pick is an entirely different thing.

One is protection and the other is insanity.

If its not an ASU QB....just forget about it

It would be ludicrously insane to use a high draft pick on a QB right now.

The Cowboys are in win-now mode, and with a healthy team (particularly the QB), they can get it done.

Ah gee....Romo will be in the first year of his 54Mil guaranteed deal, I really don't think we will be looking for a QB.....lmao

I do think JJ gave Tony to much money. But my guess we are 3 yrs away from drafting a QB

At the moment we don't even have a clue if Tony can recover from his back surgery. Back problems have retired a lot of pro-players.

As back surgeries go, this one is the easiest to recover from. A bulging disk is usually just scraped and with a little luck, he can be back better than he was..

Hope you are right about that one Bevo, but we will have other QBs in camp, we always do. JJ could actually grab a backup in the 3rd round would not surprise me at all.

But I think they cut Orton, and look hard for his replacement. Maybe a Tom Brady type in the later rounds  cheers

I think the big question is "can they really evaluate Tony's progress before the draft"? If they can't then they will have to get aggressive in finding a back up.

I also don't see a future in Dallas for Orton, but you never know. In the Parcells days they brought in a ton of washed up QBs.

Good point, when was the last time anyone had surgery and all involved didn't say it went well.

but..I don't see how the Cowboys can cut Orton, not with Romo coming off back surgery.

I think Orton will be one of the cap cuts. Its time to groom a younger guy for the future. I just don't see JJ gambling and waiting to draft a QB next yr.

Looks like Tony's back is much better

Romo was spotted shooting hoops at Duke

I tried to copy the film here but was unable too.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo spoke for the first time on Saturday night about his back surgery.

After watching the Duke-North Carolina game with coach Jason Garrett, Romo told ESPN's Rece Davis that his recovery from back surgery is going well and he's on target to participate in next month's organized team activities.

"It's going good," said Romo, who was wearing a black Duke polo shirt. "We're getting close now to [returning]. Usually takes three months, it's just normal kinda roundabout date that they give ya and we're right on schedule. Really ahead in a lot of ways. Just going to be ready to go here in about a month and rehab is going good, no setbacks of any kind. Mine [surgery] was just a normal small version of it, so I should be good to go here shortly."

Romo dealt with minor back issues during the 2013 season and a few days before a Week 16 game at Washington was limping during the early stages of a practice. Romo said it was just normal soreness, but late in the game against the Redskins, he came up limping again after avoiding a sack.

Romo finished the game but suffered a herniated disk and underwent season-ending surgery two days before the regular-season finale against Philadelphia.

Cowboys officials said Romo received instant relief after the surgery and he should be ready to start the 2014 offseason program on time.

Romo has been seen around the Dallas area looking slimmer than he did last year and on Friday he was shooting baskets on the Duke campus.

"I mean you do little things," he said. "You progress, everything is a progression. You kinda, whatever it is, whether it's running or lifting, everything just starts small and you progress up. So we've already started a lot of that stuff [rehab] going. Now it's just going to the next step every week or two and just attacking. For me, it's like anything else, just another thing to attack and improve and I'm always up for that."

Romo finished the 2013 season with 3,828 yards with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
