With Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's new role as player-coach going into the 2013 season and fresh off of receiving a new contract, he has less time to do the usual things he loves to do in the offseason. That means less of his other love: golf. Romo is cutting back on participating in golf tournaments this offseason as he prepares himself for his expanded role in the Cowboys' offense. ESPNDallas.com reports that Romo passed on playing at the Azalea Invitational in Charleston, S.C., the Adams Golf Pro-Scratch Championship in Dallas and he won't try to qualify for the HP Byron Nelson Championship or the U.S. Open. NFL.com's Dan Hanzus writes: ' Though Romo hasn't publicly connected his changes in golf habits to his $108 million extension, it's a sensible guess. Shortly after the signing became official, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that Romo would start spending "Peyton Manning-type time" at the Cowboys' facility. Was it a shot at Romo's work ethic? Not likely, but Romo could see benefit in removing non-football-related athletic pursuits from his schedule. At the very least, it sends a message to the Cowboys locker room. '
