Tony Romo Seen Throwing Passes To Miles Austin At Practice

Cowboys Headlines - Tony Romo Seen Throwing Passes To Miles Austin At Practice

It's been 62 days since Cowboys Nation saw Tony Romo throwing passes. Reset that counter to zero, baby!

Tony Romo was at practice. Threw passes to Miles Austin while team stretched. Threw some during individual drills

Shortly before all of this happened Head Coach Jason Garrett said in his morning press conference that Romo would not practice, and technically he isn't practicing. Tony Romo is simply throwing footballs while practice is going on around him.

There's a lot of understandable confusion as to why Miles Austin - who hasn't found a home since playing most of last season with the Eagles - is at Cowboys practice and on the receiving end of Tony Romo's practice. It makes sense if you take a step back and think.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo still not technically practicing, but he did throw a few passes in warmups and individual drills today. #WFAACowboys

The new CBA is very strict in terms of official practices and not going even one second over them. If Tony Romo wanted to get in some reps this season, while his teammates were practicing, it makes sense that he'd call up an old pal (who was just in the NFL last season) for a few games of catch. Tony Romo is one of the best teammates there is - he did host a house party for the team last week - and Miles Austin has been seen at Dallas Cowboys practices this season. It all makes sense.

When he was first injured it was rumored Romo would return for this Sunday's game against the Eagles, now it seems like his 2016 debut could come 11 days from now in Cleveland. Whenever, wherever Tony Romo makes his triumphant return it will surely be a glorious day, just like this one is.

Tony Romo is throwing! Tony Romo is throwing! Huzzah!

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!

  • Rick

    I’m more interested in knowing more about the possibility of a Miles Austin return!!

    • RJ Ochoa

      Haha wouldn’t that be epic?!

  • Robert,Rangel

    Nobody but the cowboys would picked back hope it’s for the best.

  • Robert,Rangel

    We’re doing great the way it’s going

    • RJ Ochoa

      Sure, but things aren’t going to go this way much longer. They’re going to get more difficult, and when they do you want the best QB in there – that’s Tony.

  • Charles Ray

    I think things will be just fine. I was impressed the way they handled Green Bay. If the offensive line stays healthy and the way Elliot runs great downhill, I see play action to at least 3 or 4 different receivers. I feel pretty good about them boys.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker 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:

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

Kevin Brady



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.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

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.

Dallas Cowboys Restructure Travis Frederick’s Contract, Clear Cap Space

Sean Martin



Travis Frederick

Patience is a virtue for football fans everywhere this time of the year, especially those of the Dallas Cowboys. A team known for using free agency to deal with their own expiring contracts and players, Cowboys Nation has been anxiously awaiting an addition to improve this roster before the draft. While the wait will continue for outside help in Dallas, the Cowboys have created $7.5 million in cap space by restructuring the contract of Center Travis Frederick.

C Travis Frederick will restructure his deal to help clear up roughly 7.5M in cap space for the #Cowboys per source informed

Restructuring the contracts of their cornerstone players is nothing new for the Cowboys. Rarely doing so with a clear "next move" in sight, the market for top FA talent at WR and OL may have already passed the Cowboys.

Having the space to negotiate with available players now opens the door just slightly further for Earl Thomas or Tyrann Mathieu acquisitions to become realistic. Reportedly, the Cowboys have inquired about both safeties (Thomas via popular trade talks and Mathieu as a free agent, released by the Cardinals) and have been met with price tags the Jones' were forced to turn away.

Giving up assets for players that will warrant large future contracts is not currently the Dallas Cowboys' way, but being able to sign somebody in free agency has been. To avoid a repeat of 2017, a season arguably derailed as soon as the team's free agent class failed entirely, the Cowboys will need to find proven players that can contribute on the market in the coming weeks.

With the help of the anchor to their star-studded offensive line, the Cowboys can come to this market with slightly thicker wallets now. Keep the optimistic tweets alive, and tip Travis Frederick accordingly.
