Training camp has started for the Dallas Cowboys and all eyes are on QB Tony Romo. There has been a ton of speculation about Romo’s health this off-season and that has some Cowboys fans worried.
Romo, who is 34 years old, spoke to the media after practice and made some comments that will draw a lot of attention. Romo says he feels like his best days are ahead of him as we will see the best version of him in the next 4 to 5 years.
“I feel personally like I’ve just started to come into the player that I wanted to be six, seven years ago,” Romo said. “I think over the course of the next four or five years, you’ll see the best version of me that I’ve had throughout my career.
“That’s for a lot of different reasons, but I really believe that. I believe that will show as we go forward, so I’m excited about that.”
Romo also says that he never questioned if he would return for this season.
“Nah,” he said. “I didn’t think about that. I’m sure one day when I’m 45, the body will tell me I’m done playing.”
If Romo really believes that his body will hold up until 45, he’s got another thing coming. I think realistically, Romo might have 2-3 seasons left in him.
