Did Tony Romo Use An Instagram Video Of His Son To Send A Message To The Cowboys?

RJ Ochoa



Tony Romo

Life in the NFL is a crazy one in the year 2017. I know that I've personally spent many hours browsing the Twitter profiles of certain players, trying to find a clue that'll lead to where they ultimately land. Sometimes the work is done for you with an obvious piece of information, and maybe that's the latest development in the case of Tony Romo. Did he just use an Instagram video of his son to send a message to the Cowboys?!

I told him it was bed time and he said "let's talk about that." He told me he has a deal for me. Hhhhmmm

A post shared by Tony Romo (@tony.romo) on

The video starts and plays in its entirety with Hawkins Romo, who turns five this April, as the featured star. Here is a transcription of it:

"Ok... deal? Pinky promise? Pinky promise!" -Hawkins

"What am I pinky-promising?" -Tony

"That deal! Ok? You're gonna do it, ok? Pinky promise!" -Hawkins

"Is it good?" -Tony

"Uhuh. It's good. It's a good deal for me. It's better for me ok, Dad? It's not for you, it's for me." -Hawkins

"Why would I take the deal then if it's better for you?" -Tony

WHOAAA. This is some serious potential fire coming from Hawkins Romo, who was actually the co-star of Tony's first Instagram video. Hawk is over here telling Tony to not only take a deal, but to PINKY PROMISE... and all of us have spent enough time around schoolyards to know that you never go back on a pinky promise.

Could this be absolutely nothing? Sure. Maybe this is just a matter of Hawkins being upset about being put to bed... in the middle of the afternoon. What? Yea, that's what Tony is selling this as! The caption reads: I told him it was bed time and he said "let's talk about that." He told me he has a deal for me. Hhhhmmm

HMMM indeed, Tony. We've all seen Romo evade defenders with his can't-replicate magic, who's to say that Tony can't put the same level of creativity into his online disses? After all, it has been nine - poetically, I might add - days since the Cowboys reportedly told Romo that they would release him, and it's been eight days since Free Agency officially began.

If you subscribe to the theory that this is indeed some insanely genius way of sending a message to the Cowboys and their braintrust, then what is the deal that Romo is avoiding? Is there a trade in the works? Does he have to restructure his contract? Is it a team that he doesn't wish to play for?


We'll have you updated on the situation - assuming it's real - here at Inside The Star. Have a fantastic weekend.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!

    This is fucking bullshit not only should romo still be the starter but now that they have screwed him over you not gonna show the QB with the 4th overall QB rating in NFL history enough respect to let him move on from your screwing I am and always will be a cowboys fan but jerry jones your a real sack of shit for doing this to him he deserves more than this and where ever he goes he will win a Super Bowl before our now cowboys

    • David Leech

      Nothing against dak he is great but last year romo should have taken back over as starter period and for the beating that romo took for this team he has had a few good players help but overall had it not been for romo thorowing the ball 60 times a game Dallas would have been the worst team in the NFL ever year at the end for all those oh romo sucks your fuck??? Idiots NO Dfense no recievers no running back until dak and for him to have those numbers shows that why he didn’t have a ring and the same reason dak won’t they just let the only good players on Dfense go and Elliot will be suspended for at least 8 games next year anyway see YA JERRY YOU SUCK BEYOND SUCKING AND THAT WILL BE YPUR LEGACY HOW SHITTY YOU DO PEOPLE

    • Chris

      A bro DAK is better then romo get over it we are moving on from him Dak beat tom Brady’s rookie record in interceptions bro he was a bad ass QB and is only gonna get better. Dak I’m with you bro get us a ring

  • Jonathan Ledwig

    To say Romo deserved to start over Dak is BS. First of all, Why would you ruin the confidence of a rookie just to get Romo back on the field. Give me a break. Dak did all he could to win for Dallas. I highly doubt Romo could have done any more than Dak did.

  • jay

    I hope tony reads these comments sometimes and reads this. Tony has a beutiful family. He is seeing what he will miss going into another season. Dont miss out on your kids growing up. He has been a great qb very underappreciated but is one or two more years worth it. He alreadt has a bad back. He gets hit the wrong way and when its time for him to be throwing his kids the ball and playing with them he could be too hurt or on pain pills. Tony needs to retire a cowboy or back dak up. He cant keep taking these chances.

  • Lewis yoder

    I can’t understand for the life of me why Romo didnt play last year when he was healthy and I can’t understand why Jerry doesn’t sit Dak the next 2 years and start Romo he’s a better QB, Dak still has some learning to do and to be honest Dak can’t move the ball down field. I watched every game last year and every time Dak had trouble moving the ball Elliott wasn’t running good. I think just about any QB in the league could have had the same record Dak did behind that offensive line with Elliott running like that. Why hasn’t anyone seen this. Brady got hurt his replacement young gun came out and won for him but when Brady was healthy Brady gets his job back and they win they are the champs. Why one word experience. If Romo would have played we would have made the Super Bowl. Maybe we win maybe we lose but we would have gone to the big game and we would have done it by doing right by a man who literally put his life on the line to win games for us. I would like to say thanks Romo and it’s a shame to see you treated this way. Jerry has no Honor. I think winning is important but how you win is just as important. Can’t stand listen Jerry did Troy wrong a long time ago and Cowboys haven’t won since. This was there chance to do the write thing by Romo and make things write again but they failed screwed Romo over just like Troy and now they will be punished another 20 years with no big wins it’s Karma Nature’s way. Just saying Patriots did right by Brady and look what happend, colts screwed over Manning and look what happened Denver picked him up and a couple of Super bowls. Jerry should keep Romo and sit Dak and watch the magic happen

    • deal with it

      the magic happened this year-a rookie winning 11 in a row. Romo’s time has passed. it is what it is.

Report: QB Dak Prescott Signs Multi-Year Deal With Campbell’s Chunky Soup

Kevin Brady



Jekyll or Hyde: Year 3 "Prove It" Season For Dak Prescott? 1

Being the Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback comes with its challenges, but it certainly comes with its perks as well. One of those perks is the opportunity for endorsement deals, and income outside of his football salary.

Dak Prescott is embracing those perks now, reportedly signing a multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup through 2020. Prescott will continue to endorse Chunky MAXX, Campbell's protein soup line.

Brandon George on Twitter

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has re-signed a new multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup through 2020. This is the first QB multi-year deal for Chunky Soup since Donovan McNabb in 2001. He'll continue to promote Chunky MAXX, the protein-packed line of soups, this year, per Edelman

Campbell's Soup has had some legendary football related commercials throughout the years, none more memorable than those with former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and his mother.

In fact, Dak Prescott is the first NFL quarterback to sign a multi-year deal with Campbell's Chunky Soup since those McNabb commercials.

Hopefully, Dak Prescott can continue to "prove it" on the field and still be the Cowboys starting quarterback throughout this entire Campbell's deal.

BREAKING: David Irving Suspended For 2nd Consecutive Year

Mauricio Rodriguez



David Irving

For the second consecutive year, Defensive Lineman David Irving is being suspended for four games by the NFL. This time, the suspension comes after Irving violated the NFL's policy on substance of abuses, as Ian Rapoport reported.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Cowboys DL David Irving is being suspended 4 games for violating @NFL policy on substance of abuses, sources say. Another big-time D-linemen hit with a suspension for Dallas.

Irving will play for the Dallas Cowboys after the team placed a second-round tender on him earlier in the year. Why no team was interested in picking such a talented defensive tackle for a second round pick is becoming clearer and clearer as the time goes on.

In April, when David Irving got hacked by his former girlfriend one of the tweets that stood out the most was one which said "Wait until you all find about his failed drug tests." Now, we're seeing what the tweet was about.

Irving is a very talented player that could have a great career ahead of him. Of course, with this being the second consecutive year in which he receives a suspension to start the season, one could question how much he wants it.

The Cowboys will play the Panthers, Giants, Seahawks and Lions to start the season. They'll have to do it with one of their most promising defensive players in David Irving.

Here at Inside The Star, we'll keep you updated with this story and every Dallas Cowboys news.

Jason Witten’s Lasting Message to Cowboys TE Rico Gathers

Cowboys 2016 Draft Class: Who Will Be The Stand Out In 2017?

When Dallas Cowboys legend Jason Witten retired from the NFL last month, he left behind an unproven group of tight ends for the Cowboys to field as Witten moves on to the Monday Night Football broadcast booth. This is not a TE group short of potential, although that's nothing new for the laundry list of players that have failed at the position behind the Hall of Fame bound Witten.

Headlining this group of potential heirs to Witten has to be 2016 draft pick Rico Gathers. Not yet given the same opportunities that Geoff Swaim and Blake Jarwin are receiving through the Cowboys ongoing mini camp, Gathers has been criticized for his commitment to his team.

Looking to make the transition from the basketball court at Baylor to the football field, Gathers' journey began at Witten's soon-to-be home forever. Playing his first organized football game since middle school, Gathers and Witten were teammates in the Hall of Fame game at Canton, Ohio in 2017.

A game rarely leaving fans with a lasting memories, Gathers immediately flashed potential in the passing game, hauling in three passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Gathers would go on to spend the season on IR after a concussion suffered in practice, recovering from it in time to return but never seeing the field.

This leaves Gathers' prospects of putting it all together in year three at a difficult crossroads. It will be hard to question Gathers' commitment moving forward, as the message from his former teammate Jason Witten still lives with him.

Jason Witten's Lasting Message to Cowboys TE Rico Gathers

If Witten truly sees a "bright future" for Rico Gathers, who Head Coach Jason Garrett says needs work in the running game, there is no reason the Cowboys can't find a role for him this season. With an entirely unproven group of wide receivers, Gathers could be the reliable mismatch for Dak Prescott to target in the middle of the field.

Prescott was the ninth worst quarterback in the league last season in red zone completion percentage, surely something the 6'6" TE Gathers could help improve.

Gathers may be a long way off from becoming Prescott's version of Witten to Tony Romo, but there is still hope for the 2016 draft pick, according to now football analyst Jason Witten.
