Executive VP Stephen Jones says he's not "necessarily confident" the Cowboys will agree to an extension with Tony Romo in the near future.
"We've got to have both sides wanting to do something," Jones said, perhaps hinting Romo is in no hurry to bail the Cowboys out of their messy cap situation. Jerry's son does insist he's optimistic. "These things happen fast when they happen. We're in good shape." Romo's $16.8 million cap number is the biggest for a team that still has a lot of maneuvering to do. Jones concedes "losing players" is a possibility if a deal isn't hammered out before free agency. Perhaps Romo will take advantage of the Cowboys' desperation by getting an extra year or two tacked onto what should reasonably be a three-year pact.
