Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters at the NFL owners meeting that no one needs to worry about QB Tony Romo getting a new contract. We are involved in negotiations," Jones said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "It's just not the thing to do for him or me to say we ought to have something done by midnight or tomorrow unless it's that imminent. You can't get that answered because you don't have it all ready to sign. But I'm not concerned that we are looking at a drawn-out thing here. "I'm not concerned that is going to in any way hamper any decision we want to make personal wise over the next few weeks." All signs seem to point to a deal getting done very soon, as the Cowboys currently have Romo on the books for a $16.8 million cap. That figure has to come down. "Romo, of course, is someone that I expect our staff, our offensive staff, to deploy Romo according to his pay scale," Jones said. "Stay tuned, but he's going to have high expectations, I promise you that. He is not going to be paid to be a bus driver."
