Can Tony Romo give Jerry Jones “every thing” and lead the team to a Super Bowl? (Credit: AP Photo) During this off-season, the Dallas Cowboys made Tony Romo one of the highest paid players in the NFL with a six year, $108 million extension. After extending Romo, outspoken owner Jerry Jones said he would like to see Romo spend more time in the team’s facilities and working with the offense. Jones’ comments were not meant to question Romo’s commitment, instead Jones suggests because he is paying Romo a lot of money he expects him to be completely dedicated to the team. While speaking to Albert Breer on NFL Network, Jones says he wants to get everything from Romo. “When you give somebody $100 million, you’d like to get every ounce of anything they can bring to the table to win a football game,” Jones said. Jones added that he believes Romo has a great offensive mind and can still bring a lot to the team. “He’s outstanding on offensive concepts and he’s got a vantage point that very few people have,” Jones said of Romo. “So anything that he can bring from the concept to the field has got to make us a better football team. I think it will.” Jones also said despite being 8-8 over the last two seasons, the Cowboys are still growing and can utilize Romo’s skills to start winning more games. “We’ve been disappointed the last two years,” Jones said. “Nobody more so than him. We’re going to take what we’ve got with Romo’s great experience, ability, decision making, all of those things and we’re going to try to win more ballgames.” After Super Bowl champion Joe Flacco received a $100 million contract this off-season, it seems as though Romo will have to bring a Super Bowl back to Dallas to justify his contract. The only question is can Tony Romo lead the Dallas Cowboys to a Super Bowl?
