Report: Jerry Jones Thinks Tony Romo Is Better Than Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would rather have quarterback Tony Romo than Stanford’s Andrew Luck or Baylor’s Robert Griffin III, according to the Star-Telegram.
“Tony is going to play a lot more than two more years,” said the owner’s son and team vice president Stephen Jones. “We are going to take care of Tony. Tony is going to be a Cowboy.”
According to the Star-Telegram, Stephen Jones conveyed his father’s same thoughts, who reportedly said over the weekend that he has no interest in starting over with a top draft prospect in quarterbacks Luck or Griffin.
Despite limited success in the playoffs since taking over as the starting quarterback in 2006, Jerry Jones is reportedly convinced that Romo will lead the Cowboys back to the Super Bowl. Despite the Cowboys missing the playoffs last season, Romo had one of his best seasons of his career last year, finishing with a 102.5 passer rating.
