Albert Breer spoke with one Dallas staff member who said that Tony Romo was able to make all the throws last year while working on the scout team and overall looked like pretty good.
“It was clear he could make all the throws he’d made in the past,” said the staffer. “He was very aggressive, made some decisions I’m sure he wouldn’t have in a game, but it was scout team, so there was little consequence. He had some pocket collapsing situations with the backup OL vs. the first DL, and his accuracy, arm strength, and vision all looked up to his standard. There was some rush, working with some receivers he hadn’t before, but the elements were there.”
According to Breer, Romo didn’t show up to training camp in the best shape the past few years, which was viewed by the team as a sign that “his desire to play was beginning to wane.” Breer adds that this was one of the reasons why the team took Romo’s flirtation with the TV networks seriously from the start.
