Tony Romo is gainfully employed by CBS Sports and the Dallas Cowboys have hitched their wagons to Dak Prescott for the long haul at the quarterback position. With that said, Dallas does not exactly have an exciting backup QB situation and, with only one year of film on Prescott, there is more uncertainty than some would like to believe.
To that end, Cowboys QB coach Wade Wilson was recently asked (via Scout.com) about the possibility that Romo could get “the call” should something happen to Prescott and, well, he didn’t avoid the discussion entirely.
“It’s fun to speculate about that, if Dak were to go down in Week Two, would Tony come back? I don’t know the answer to that. I just don’t know. Do I think he’s capable of coming back and playing? Most definitely. Does he want to or what his commitment is to the network? I don’t know that, so it’s fun to think about, and it’s fun water-cooler topics to talk about [even without] information to make a definitive answer on that.”
It seems (very) far-fetched that Romo would leave the TV booth midseason in order to replace Prescott. Let’s get that out of the way now.
Still, it is endlessly entertaining to consider even the possibility and Jerry Jones might be desperate enough to make it worth Romo’s while in some way. This is more of a hypothetical than anything but Wilson’s description of “fun” seems apt.
