Tony Romo Trades In His Jersey For a CBS Sports Blazer

What a day it has been for Cowboys Nation. Tony Romo's retirement announcement shook the NFL world, as did his subsequent move to CBS to join Jim Nantz as a broadcaster - becoming official not only with his release moments ago but this picture from Tony Romo's own Twitter account.

I guess it's time to start dressing up. #CBS

Social media has been a powerful tool for Tony Romo this offseason, with even harmless Instagram videos being linked to his status with the Cowboys. Romo's relationship with the Dallas Cowboys came into question these past weeks, but the team ultimately did right by him.

More importantly, Tony is clearly at peace with the decision to end his NFL career having played solely for America's Team, making the transition to the broadcast booth much like Troy Aikman and even Roger Staubach and Don Meredith to come before him as QBs of the Cowboys.


No Description

CBS has released this statement on Tony Romo joining their NFL coverage team, and Romo had this to say about the partnership as well:

Statement from Tony Romo on joining CBS:

Tony Romo wants to succeed in everything he does, and the opportunity for him to do so is now in a perfect role for #9 at CBS Sports.

Go get it, Tony.

      Romo to Simms, “That’s great, doesn’t seem like those rings are helping you now, does it.”

  • John Williams

    This is such a great move for him, and such a fun move for Cowboys nation. We get to enjoy Romo in the booth for the next 2 or 3 decades or however long he wants to do it. Will our grandchildren be playing EA Sports Romo Football 2047? If I’m alive then, I will be and I’ll be using the 2014 classic Dallas Cowboys team to right some wrongs.

Cowboys Trade for FB Jamize Olawale from Raiders

Jamize Olawale, Raiders

Less than a week after the Cowboys lost fullback Keith Smith to the Raiders in free agency, the two teams have worked out a trade to send FB Jamize Olawale from Oakland to Dallas.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Fullback trade! The #Raiders are sending FB Jamize Olawale to the #Cowboys, sources say. Dallas has its fullback, one who was with Oakland since 2012.

To facilitate the trade, the Cowboys will send their fifth-round pick (173rd overall) to the Raiders for their sixth-round pick (192nd), moving back just 19 spots.

In return, Dallas not only brings in a veteran replacement at FB but a player they already know.

Jamize Olawale was an undrafted rookie free agent of the Cowboys in 2012. Despite a strong showing in that preseason, Dallas did not have room for him on the roster. He was on the team's practice squad until December, when Oakland poached him.

Since then, Olawale has been a regular roleplayer in the Raiders' offense. He's missed just six games since 2013.

Jamize brings more offensive firepower to the FB position than Keith Smith had. He's scored at least one touchdown in each of the last three seasons. He can be effective both running and receiving.

Through the trade, Dallas picks up the final year of Olawale's current contract. It calls for a $1.5 million base salary in 2018.

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

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.

Todd Archer on Twitter

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...

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.

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.
