According to the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys' desire to lock-up Tony Romo long-term "hasn't changed" despite his disastrous performance in Sunday's season-ending loss.
Romo is entering the final season of the six-year, $67.4 million extension he signed in October 2007. It's unclear what the basis for the Morning News' report is, but coach Jason Garrett gave his quarterback an emphatic vote of confidence on Monday. "We have a great belief of Tony Romo as our quarterback," Garrett said. "We all know that we want to take the next step, and Tony is going to be a big part of that going forward." Romo's failures under the bright lights are well documented, while he's just three months shy of his 33rd birthday. There's no doubt the Cowboys would have a whale of a time finding an upgrade, however.
