Jerry Jones gave Tony Romo a huge new deal, and plenty of offensive responsibility to go along with it this off-season. Jones loves Romo’s offensive mind, and compared his thinking to that of Saints offensive genius, Sean Payton according to ESPN Dallas. “It is also just the flair for being able to see it and being creative out there,” Jones said. “In visiting with Bill, he thought it was something we really ought to take advantage of is Tony’s ability to see the field, call the plays and make more decisions out there.” Jones admitted that it was his talks with Bill Parcells that truly made him decide to give Romo the increased work load. “Bill knows Tony well and he has always had a real appreciation for Romo’s approach and his intellect relative to play calling relative to seeing and understanding the game,” Jones said Tuesday on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM in Dallas. “He’s unique in that way. In a way, Tony has some of the kind of skills you might see in a Sean Payton.”
