Tony Romo has meant so much to everyone involved with the Dallas Cowboys over his career. From coaches, owners, and fans down to the very players that he shares a roster spot with, the veteran QB has given us a fair share of unforgettable memories while leaving it all on the field every Sunday for the silver and blue.
One fellow player on Romo's offense, WR Terrance Williams, took to Instagram yesterday to boldly show his support for #9.
The caption read as follows:
"Nothing else matters. Most of y'all on here to hate so here's the 🐐 so feel free to hate. #americasmostwanted #throwupthex #RealDealTWill #tonythegoat"
Williams has been criticized by Cowboys Nation since his selection in the third round of the 2013 draft. However, there is no question that he is a different player when Tony Romo is on the field.
Romo finds a way to elevate the level of play for all of his targets, and that is especially true for Terrance, who saw just 36 catches when targeted by Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel, and Kellen Moore this season.
With Moore starting in week 17, Williams did finish 2015 with a season high 8 receptions for 173 yards. Let's hope he can take this momentum into 2016, where he will have to earn his playing time with Romo by beating out the likes of Brice Butler in training camp.
A resurgent Terrance Williams to play across from a healthy Dez Bryant (who T-Will referenced in the Instagram post with the #ThrowUpTheX) could mean big numbers for the Cowboys offense in 2016 - led by Tony Romo.

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018
Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.
Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.
Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of... https://t.co/yTQbMYyrIv
While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.
L.P. Ladouceur is back in the silver and blue, and in this moment, everything can be alright with the world.
Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber
A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.
The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber: https://t.co/TaC6cqjval
Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.
Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.
The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.
Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick
After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.
I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.
This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.
Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.
In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.
Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
