Cowboys Headlines - Tony Romo Invites Teammates Over For A Chill Night At Home During Bye

I think I speak for all members of Cowboys Nation when I say - I want to hang out with Tony Romo.

Not only is Tony the fearless leader of America's Team, but he's also a great person (you can read about a personal interaction I had with him here). Anyone and everyone who has ever interacted with Antonio Ramiro Romo swears by his kindness, plus the dude makes a mean crownie.

Perhaps crownies were served on Wednesday night when Tony and the 'Boys hung out at Casa de Romo. Check out some photos from Anthony Hitchens' Snapchat account.

Anthony Hitchens is obviously impressed that his "guy" Tony has a basketball court in his home, and he should be! Romo is a huge sports fan. He loves football (duh), basketball, golf, anything and everything competitive... Tony is all about. In fact Tony loves basketball so much that we've even seen him, Coach Garrett, and Jason Witten hanging out at Duke games. This court, with the Star in the center, is incredible. Also... there's a slide! Amazing.

I mentioned that Tony loves golf - remember the days where he tried to qualify for the U.S. Open? - and it seems there was some involved as well.

Here we have what looks like Cowboys Rushman Jack Crawford. He's been seen rocking that flatbill before, only the coolest people in the world can fit that bill and Jack is certainly one of them.

This appears to be Zack Martin, although it's difficult to recognize him without defensive linemen flying off of him.

What's attributed so much to the success of the 2016 Cowboys has been their chemistry. This is a team with a foundation of brotherhood, and that's evident even in these Snapchat screenshots.

The Cowboys are more than teammates, they're a family. The fact that they're spending the bye week hanging out and hooping/playing indoor golf is as fantastic news as their 5-1 start. These are our 'Boys.

What do you make of the Cowboys spending Wednesday during the bye hanging out at Tony Romo's house, just chilling? Let us know! Comment below, Email me at, or Tweet to me at @RJOchoa!

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!

  • Charles Shapley

    I think it’s great, he’s handling it well. Great comrades..

    • RJ Ochoa

      Me too! This is the kind of thing great teams do. They foster relationships out of brotherhood. I love it.

  • Charles Shapley

    Go cowboys, I can’t tell u how nice it is to have 2 great qb’s n not have to worry about tony getting hurt…wow

    • RJ Ochoa

      It seriously is the best possible problem to have!

  • juan f. ramirez

    Why fix it if it ain’t broken …we keep romo on the bench just in case !

  • http://Inside%20the%20star King

    Tony deserves to lead this team when healthy, if his body can’t hold up then we go back to dak and Tony maybe hang it up retire a cowboy

  • Fitzgerald Coach

    Romo, on the side line in uniform as a Playing Coach. We would all regret it if he left Dallas in a wheelchair.

  • Oscar

    Trade Romo? Just remember RG111 and Kap.Had great first years and after that what happened? So go ahead and we’ll how teams adjust to Daks ways of play next season or later this season! And if I may ask how well would Dak be playing if he we’re on the Bears or the Browns or any other team that didn’t have the O line we have and a defense that’s finally playing up to it potential. This is not just a one man show, the boys are finally playing like a true super bowl team!!! GO COWBOYS

  • Quinton

    yea well that’s cool and all but we still need to NOT put romo back out there hes not willing to run or take a hit for his team anytime you pass on the 1 or 2 yard line you’re not willing to win at all cost. everyone else sacrifices for the team what makes him so different NOTHING coward football doesn’t live in Dallas anymore. we are tired of seeing him throw balls away because hes trying to pad stats for passing yards! Hey Miami needs a QB send him down there! Or Chicago

  • Thom Stewart

    I seem to remember that Tom Landry was a player/coach at New York before he became the 1st head coach for the Cowboys.

  • Pearson Burke

    Let Dak play until he messes up or more likely gets hurt. Do not bet against a hot shooter. Let it ride. The life expectancy of a QB in the NFL is not long so Tony is a very good insurance policy

  • DI Construction David Inurrigarro

    JJ is a true marketing – business man. 1) business first, 2) teams need, 3) the only owner, CEO, after each game JJ gives a press conference, 4) family. It’s been reported Romo can’t be traded by the deadline of Nov 4. Also, if JJ did trade Romo, this would add $5.million to the salary cap.

    Option A:
    JJ has limited options with Romo, knowing the Intel on “how JJ neurons flex, JJ needs to bring trading value by playing Romo, show off his skill and talents, this way he can negotiate a #1 pick, (defensive pass rusher) and be compensated.
    A true scenario to be evolved. A genuine business transaction TBA in the off season.

    Option B:
    The boys win the Super Bowl in a few weeks. By using both QBs, Dak gets hurt in week 13, Romo steps in and wins out. JJ knows the reality of this scenario. The boys win the Super Bowl in 2017, and you keep the same players and repeat your success in 2018, back to back Super Bowl wins.

    JJ needs to keep Romo, the team is solid, unstoppable, Super Bowl bound for the next 5 years.
    This will rise the teams value from $5.billion to over $6-7.billion.
    JJ needs to keep Romo.

  • Francisco Ramos

    I want Romo back in it, but you can’t argue the fact the fact right now that Prescott to go against Wentz isn’t gonna be an exciting game on the biggest stage in football let along prime time !

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Reinstated, Will Join Team for Training Camp

Sean Martin



Will the Dallas Cowboys "Get Lucky" at Defensive End?

The Dallas Cowboys patience with Defensive End Randy Gregory has paid off. Suspended for the better part of 2016 and all of 2017, Gregory has officially been reinstated to join the team for their 2018 training camp. The projected starter at RDE, Gregory will report to Oxnard with the rest of the team on July 25th.

From here, it will be all hard work for Gregory to reconnect with Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli and get his promising career back on track. The last time Gregory suited up for the Cowboys, he managed to sack Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz in a week 17 win. The Cowboys will be expecting much more of this from a player they've supported through multiple violations of the league's heavily criticized substance abuse policy.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Cowboys pass-rusher Randy Gregory's petition for reinstatement was not opposed, according to lawyer Daniel Moskowitz. He's back. "I've never been more proud of any individual in my life. I'm very excited for Randy and his daughter and the rest of the his family.

Among this support staff for Gregory were a number of teammates that wrote formal letters to the NFL as part of his bid for reinstatement. These last few days of preparation before the Cowboys are together again as a team will surely be uplifted by Gregory's presence.

They say no news is typically good news at this point in the offseason, something the Cowboys have come to realize far too often. Today's news shouldn't be confused with a pleasant surprise however, rather something the Cowboys were committed to in getting another premier pass rusher on the field.

Here is the NFL's official press release on their reinstatement of Randy Gregory:

Cowboys & DeMarcus Lawrence Fail to Reach New Contract

Jess Haynie



Which 2018 Free Agents Will The Cowboys Retain? 1
Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportwire

DeMarcus Lawrence will definitely be a Cowboy in 2018, but now the future  beyond that remains in question. The Dallas Cowboys and their star defensive end did not agree to a long-term contract by today's deadline for franchise-tagged players.

According to NFL rules, teams had until 4:00 pm EST today to reach contract extensions with free agents who'd been assigned the franchise tag earlier this offseason. Players who did not get new deals will have to play the 2018 season on their one-year franchise tenders.

Jon Machota on Twitter

DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys were unable to work out a long-term contract by today's deadline. Lawrence will play the 2018 season under a one-year franchise tag that will pay him $17.1 million

This does not mean Lawrence will be a free agent in 2019. The two parties can still discuss the contract in the months to come, but the deal cannot be made until after the end of the regular season.

Dallas also has the option of giving DeMarcus a second franchise tag next year. However, that would come at a considerably higher price for a second-straight season.

This year, Lawrence will still make plenty with one of the highest cap hits of any DE in the league. He earned the franchise tag last with 14.5 sacks in a breakout season.

Today's news may not really be a big deal in the long run. As long as Tank wants to stay in Dallas after this, the two sides now have over five months to keep talking and will hopefully agree on a new deal for 2019 and beyond.

There is risk on both sides, of course.

Lawrence's leverage could be less if his productions drops or he gets injured. On the other hand, his position could be even stronger with a second-straight year of strong play.

Now everyone, from the team to player to fans, is in wait-and-see mode until the end of the season.

Will Cowboys WR Noah Brown Do Enough to Make the Roster?

Sean Martin



Will Cowboys WR Noah Brown Do Enough to Make Cowboys Roster? 2
(Tom Fox/The Dallas Morning News)

The Dallas Cowboys aren't short on numbers at wide receiver on their current 90-man roster. Looking to replace Dez Bryant and reshape their offense, the Cowboys will have to find the right group of pass catchers for Dak Prescott at their upcoming training camp.

This group includes Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns, Lance Lenoir, Deonte Thompson, Cedrick Wilson, Michael Gallup, KD Cannon, Mekale McCay, and Marchie Murdock.

The odd men out from this group will likely be the ones that can't sustain a consistent level of play, doing so across multiple units if needed. All ten receivers will have their flashes, but with only four being true locks to make the team, new Cowboys Wide Receivers Coach Sanjay Lal will be in on some tough decisions right away.

One such decision may be moving on from last year's seventh round pick Noah Brown out of Ohio State. Vouched for by former Buckeyes teammate Ezekiel Elliott thanks to his blocking ability on the outside, it may now be this strength in the run game and deficiency as a pass catcher that spells the end of Brown's run in Dallas.

Normally, a seventh round pick being on the roster bubble wouldn't be this noteworthy, but Brown clearly showed the potential to outplay this draft status as a rookie. Appearing in 13 games, Brown is a true X receiver, although not the dominant one the Cowboys are searching for.

What Happens if WR Allen Hurns Doesn't Pan Out?

Moving away from fielding a true number one receiver, the Cowboys did sign Allen Hurns to play this spot while prepared to spread the ball around to Williams, Beasley, and Gallup after that.

This leaves Thompson, Wilson, Cannon, Lenoir, McCay, Murdock, and Brown to prove their worth in other ways to make the roster. I've written plenty about the potential rookie Cedrick Wilson has, so I'll be expecting a strong showing from him to earn a role in the Cowboys offense.

Wilson's skill set could push a depth signing like Deonte Thompson off the team, although his ability to back up Cole Beasley/Tavon Austin on special teams is important. The same can be said about Lance Lenoir, who like Brown has the advantage over first year players given his trials through training camp and the preseason a year ago.

Long shots to make the team, Cannon, McCay, and Murdock fall just below this group -- and somewhere in the middle is Noah Brown.

Increasing his role on special teams as the season went on last year, Brown had fans throughout a coaching staff that is now drastically changed for 2018. From their shift to more speed on offense, to drafting of both Gallup and Wilson, calling Brown a fringe player on the Cowboys roster really sets up the fiery competition to come at wide receiver.

Should the Cowboys find a spot for Brown, one can only hope it means this new coaching staff has a clear plan for him to contribute on both offense and special teams outside of being a run blocker. A potential niche for Brown is his red zone ability, not afraid to put his body on the line for jump balls and fight through contact in his routes.

It won't be long until we sort out if this is enough to make the Cowboys as a wide receiver ahead of Quarterback Dak Prescott's third season.
