This Oct. 11, 2015 photo shows Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, right, talking with quarterback Tony Romo before an NFL football game against the New England Patriots in Arlington, Texas. Oct. 11, 2015. Jones honored DeMarcus Ware with the announcement that the franchise sacks leader would retire as a Cowboy, then engaged in a draft discussion centered largely on finding the team’s next dominant pass rusher. It’s exactly the opposite with Tony Romo, since the Cowboys have yet to pay homage to their 10-year starting quarterback as he heads to the broadcast booth while Dallas prepares for the start of the NFL draft feeling secure in the future under center.
