Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he hasn’t given up on his goal of bringing a Super Bowl title to Big D, regardless of his role with the future team.
Romo said in an interview with Chase Goodbread of NFL.com via Real GM that he won’t mind if the Cowboys add a quarterback this season, believing at the end of the day his skills will determine whether he’ll be a backup or a starter next season.
“If someone’s good enough to take your job, you’re probably not as good as you thought,” Romo said. “I’ve been a backup, I’ve been behind guys who were good players and I learned a lot from them. I’m going to do the same for whoever comes in.
The Cowboys are projected to select a quarterback in the NFL Draft, as they slowly transitions from the 35-year old Romo to the next young and dynamic signal-caller of the team.
Then again, the Cowboys could also look for talent in the free-agency market. They are reported as one of potential destinations for beleaguered quarterback Johnny Manziel, who was recently released by the Cleveland Browns.
Either way, Romo assures that he will be there helping the team reach its ultimate goal: a Super Bowl title.
“We get a free agent, I’ll do the same and help him. We draft a kid, I’ll do the same. At the end of the day, I feel very comfortable and confident in (my) skills and I’m obviously chasing a Super Bowl. That’s what I’m trying to bring to Dallas.”
Romo broke his collarbone twice last season and missed 12 games. ESPN NFL insider Todd Archer reported that the quarterback will be re-evaluated in four weeks to determine if surgery is needed
