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 RJ@RJOchoaShow.com, 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!

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

    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

    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

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

    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

    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.

    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 Sign WR Devin Smith, Former 2nd-Round Pick

Jess Haynie

Devin Smith

The Dallas Cowboys have reportedly signed Receiver Devin Smith, previously with the New York Jets, to a futures contract. Smith was a 2nd-round pick, 37th overall, in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Before going pro, Devin was a college teammate of current Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott, Rod Smith, and Noah Brown. They were all members of the 2014 Ohio State Buckeyes team that won the National Championship.

Smith's agent, Jason Bernstein, tweeting the following earlier today:

Jason Bernstein on Twitter

Congrats to WR Devin Smith @dsmithosu for signing with the #DallasCowboys! Welcome back. https://t.co/hCMYoE8fEh

Thus far, Smith's NFL career has been marred by injuries. He has suffered two ACL tears in the same knee and only been able to appear in 14 games. He was waived by the Jets last summer and was not with any team last season.

Overall, the 2015 class of receivers has been disappointing. Amari Cooper has been a star and other later-round picks like Tyler Lockett, Stefon Diggs, and Jamison Crowder have been good. But the other big names of the class, such as Kevin White, Breshad Perriman, and DeVante Parker, have not lived up to the hype.

The Cowboys are known for trying to reclaim players who once had high draft status and bad starts to their careers. They are clearly hoping to cash in on Smith's previously perceived potential, which had him projected as a possible first-round talent at one time.

For both Devin and Dallas' sake, we hope it's a success!

DeMarcus Lawrence Named Top Free Agent Of The 2019 Class

Breaking Down DeMarcus Lawrence's League High 5.5 Sacks Through Week 4

Much has been made about the Dallas Cowboys 2019 free agent class. Dallas has a ton of cap space moving forward, but they are going to "have" to pay many of the key players on their roster over the next two offseasons in order to keep their young core together.

Of course, when you're drafting, that's the goal. To draft so well that when your own players become free agents, you go ahead and pay them to keep them around, rather than overpay on the free agent market for external players.

One of the major pieces the Cowboys will have to retain this offseason is defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. And while Cowboys Nation often thinks of Lawrence as underrated around the league, the NFL has caught onto his importance as he enters free agency this Spring.

ESPN.com ranked their top 10 free agents for 2019, with DeMarcus Lawrence clocking in at number one, over elite players like Jadeveon Clowney and Le'Veon Bell.

ESPN's top 10 free agents for 2019 and what Le'Veon Bell should be looking to command based on previous measures. https://t.co/aJ7H1n001t

DeMarcus Lawrence is going to command big time money, likely even Khalil Mack-type money. But the fact of the matter is that he has earned it. Lawrence has been the heart and soul of the Cowboys defensive line the last two seasons, and the most consistent edge player on the team as well.

Not only has he been an effective pass rusher, but DeMarcus Lawrence also plays with a relentless motor against the run that can sometimes be rare to find in those premier pass rushers. He really is a jack of all trades at defensive end, and should be priority number one for the Cowboys this offseason.

Thankfully, I can't imagine the Cowboys not retaining DeMarcus Lawrence and extending him in the coming months.

When it Mattered Most, Cowboys Offensive Line Protected Dak Prescott

John Williams

Published

All-22 Notes: Connor Williams Stands Out in Wild Card Win

Throughout the 2018 NFL season, one of the major story lines surrounding the Dallas Cowboys was how frequently Dak Prescott was taking sacks. It's an area that the Cowboys will have to look at in the offseason to better protect their franchise quarterback moving forward. In the playoffs, however, Dak Prescott and the offensive line were much better at keeping their prized possession upright than they were in the regular season.

In the regular season, Dak Prescott was sacked 56 times for an average of 3.5 times a game. There was only one game where he wasn't sacked at all, way back in week two against the New York Giants. Four times this season, the Cowboys' quarterback was sacked five or more times. The New Orleans Saints got him for a season high seven times.

According to Pro Football Focus, Dak was "kept clean" -- not pressured -- on 63% of his drop backs during the regular season, which ranked 25th in the NFL. When kept clean, Prescott completed 74.1% of his passes, which was good for 5th in the NFL during the regular season. He was under pressure 37% of the time, which was the sixth highest rate in the NFL and his completion percentage dropped to 52.6%, still good for 10th in the NFL. It was better than Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, and Baker Mayfield.

During the playoffs, Prescott's "kept clean" percentage rose from 63% to 68% and he was only sacked once in each game. The one sack against the Los Angeles Rams probably shouldn't have been called a sack as the referee blew the whistle because Prescott was "in the grasp"...

...of his offensive lineman.

During the playoffs, the Cowboys offensive line kept the pressure off of Prescott at a better rate, allowing him to be pressured on only 31.9% of his drop backs. Meaning he was kept clean at an improved rate from the regular season at 68.1% of his drop backs. This while playing against two teams that are really good at rushing the passer. The Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks both finished in the top half of the league in sacks this season and feature players like Aaron Donald, Jarran Reed, and Frank Clark who all had double-digit sacks.

As we know, pressure rates and sacks aren't all completely on the offensive line. The quarterback, wide receivers, and the play calling all factor in, but the Cowboys are trending in the right direction with their pass protection. A full offseason for Connor Williams in the Dallas Cowboys strength and conditioning program, better health for Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, and -- fingers crossed -- Travis Frederick, should all help the offensive line play at a higher level heading into the 2019 season.

It can't be overstated how important it will be to get Travis Frederick back into the fold this season. Joe Looney was good, and that might be overstating it a bit. He was not noticeable on most plays during the season, but getting your All-Pro center back will tremendously help the offense in every facet of the game. Frederick's one of the smarter players in the NFL, who helps everyone on the offense to see the blitzes and calls out the protections. Both his mental and physical ability will be a welcomed site when the Cowboys begin practicing in the offseason.

With another year of growth for the quarterback and for the young pieces along the offensive line, and with a full offseason for Dak Prescott to grow with Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Blake Jarwin, the Cowboys should be better next season at keeping the quarterback clean.
