IRVING, Texas Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tells FOXSportsSouthwest.com that he's "discovered something that is going to be really special" with a change in his throwing mechanics as he prepares for the 2013 season.
"I don't want to get into all the details of it," Romo recently revealed as part of a pair of one-on-one interviews. "But I really think it can be a positive change."
The "change" is highly subtle and involves arm angles and release points. Romo first shared the information with FOXSportsSouthwest.com in Oxnard, Calif., in early August when he took to the training camp field a full two hours ahead of schedule for a private workout. He came away from that experimental session beaming.
In this preseason, while continuing to tinker with the change, Romo completed 72 percent of his passes and looked especially sharp throwing downfield to receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. While head coach Jason Garrett tells FOXSportsSouthwest to not overstate the importance of QBs experimenting with their mechanics (as it is so commonplace), Romo is clearly trying to do his part to earn his new 118-million contract and to put behind him parts of a 2012 season in which he finished third in the NFL with 4,903 passing yards but tied for the league lead in interceptions with 19.
"I really am excited about it," Romo said Monday in an exclusive visit while preparing for the Sunday night opener against the Giants. "It's going to be a great thing."

I feel like the perception of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo would be wildly different if he played for just about any other team in the NFL. The scrutiny that comes with being the quarterback of America’s Team, doesn’t help a player widely known for struggling when his team needs him the most. That’s why […]

Being healthy is the key to a successful season and that hasn’t been the case the past couple of seasons for WR Miles Austin. The wide receiver has been constantly hampered with nagging hamstring injuries and he hasn’t performed to the level of expectations that comes with a $54 million contract.

IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys brought their roster to the full 53 on Tuesday afternoon with a trade for Colts pass-rusher Caesar Rayford, who brings to Dallas an intriguing background if not a blue-chip pedigree.
Rayford went undrafted out of college in 2008 after having not been a starter at Washington. He never received a pro tryout then so he signed with the BC Lions of the CFL...
Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? We want your WTF…
It turns out that the entire 2013 draft class made the 53-man roster for the Cowboys (pending trades, which are not expected).
Not sure if any of these rookies will become the greatest players to wear these numbers, but there is always a chance. Here’s a look.
New #20: B.W. Webb
Greatest #20: Mel Renfro
Webb will not have a starting position without injuries and will have to prove...
