All great things must come to an end … case in point, Tony Romo’s football career. Thirteen is indeed an unlucky number, especially for football fans.
After a 13-year career QB’ing America’s Team (only two other players in Cowboys history have been on the team longer than Romo) the four-time Pro Bowler announced his decision to retire in early April. He told one interviewer he’s “about 99%” certain he won’t return to the NFL. But, he also said, “you never say never…”
As fans of the Boys in Blue know, 37-year-old Romo has been sidelined with injuries for most of the past two seasons (during which he played in only five games.) That opened the door for newbie Dak Prescott and, well, we all know what happened next. Upon hearing of Romo’s decision Dak immediately took to Instagram to thank his mentor and wish him well. (And we at ALON echo that sentiment!) For the time being, Cowboys fans can still get their Romo fix. The famed QB has accepted a job as CBS Sports’ lead analyst.
