Tony Romo's affinity for the golf course is something that we are all well aware of.
'Ol Number Nine enjoys himself a round out on the links, and he enjoys surrounding himself with company that likes to do so as well.
Romo has been buddies with another Dallas Hero for quite some time, 2015 Masters and U.S. Open Champion Jordan Spieth. The two have played a whole heck of a lot of golf together over their friendship, and Spieth has even frequented a Cowboys game or two.
Tony is getting ready for OTAs and such, but Jordan has a lot on his plate right now. Spieth is currently in the middle of defending his 2015 Masters Championship, but he's also putting out a new commercial.
The commercial is for the title sponsor of Tony Romo's place of work - AT&T. Spieth has been sponsored by them for most of his tenure as one of golf's signature faces. Jordan's parents make an appearance and that's fine and dandy, but midway through the spot Tony Romo shows up with a classic joke.
Romo and Spieth are turning into quite the twosome. This is probably a result of the city of Dallas is a common denominator for them, or maybe it's Jordan's affinity for the Cowboys and Romo's enjoyment of golf.
I think there's a subliminal element involved here for Romo, though.
We all have a "doppelganger" in this life. There's someone out there who looks exactly like us. Jordan Spieth? Well he looks exactly like a great friend of Tony's.
That's right... Jordan Spieth and Jason Witten are practically twins!
This makes the transition for Romo easier as he moves on from bestie to bestie, we're all about making his life easier right?
In all seriousness it's always great to see Tony Romo's humor on display. He's widely regarded as a hilarious person and he's really been letting the outside world in on that over the last year.
The commercial will undoubtedly get a lot of air time during The Masters this week. Tony Romo will be out there for the whole golf world to see.
The Cowboys world will be waiting anxiously.
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.

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