NFL Notes: Tony Romo, Dolphins, Texans

Tony Romo

Former Cowboys QB Tony Romo reiterated on “NFL Total Access” Wednesday that he is “done” playing professional football.

Oh yeah, probably a good chance. We’ll see how it plays out. I think you’ll find — I’m joking,” Romo said sarcastically before adding: “Like I said before, I’m done,” via Marc Sessler of NFL.com.

Romo went on to say that he is excited for his opportunity with CBS as a color commentator.

I’m pretty happy and excited about the opportunity that was presented to me,” Romo said. “I got coach [and veteran CBS play-by-play man] Jim Nantz teaching me all the tricks of the trade that I’m going to be behind on, but I’m improving fast. I’m excited about it. It gives me a chance to compete, get better and improve. I get to be passionate about the game, hopefully teach a little bit, hopefully make it a little bit entertaining along the way. It’s going to be fun.”

Dolphins

  • Buccaneers CB Brent Grimes‘ wife, Miko, said in an interview with SI.com that she publically criticized the Dolphins in order to get the organization to release her husband.
  • According to Miko, the Dolphins told Brent that if he declined a pay cut,¬†they would wait until other teams “used up all their cap space” prior to releasing him.

Texans

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle writes that OLB Brennan Scarlet is the “frontrunner” to start after OLB John Simon signed with the Colts this offseason.

I understand the game of football a lot more now,” Scarlett said. “I understand offensive schemes, our formations, our playbook. I go into this a little more comfortable. I learned how to train like a pro.

It’s been a long journey for me. I went through a lot of trials and tribulations. It’s a blessing, it really is.
