Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway won a Super Bowl at 38, something that is extremely rare by NFL standards. Quarterbacks are usually in their prime during their late 20s and early 30s. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo turned 32 in April. How much longer will he be in his prime? Could he play as long as Elway, who retired at 38? Romo told CBS 11's The Score with Babe Laufenberg Sunday night that he plans on playing at least six more seasons. "I actually think I probably am going to end up starting more years going forward than I did up to this point," Romo said. Romo became the Cowboys' starting quarterback during the 2006 season. It's certainly something that's possible. However, it will depend largely upon his health and success going forward. "I'm still advancing," Romo said at the beginning of training camp. "I still think the ceiling is still there, and I'm learning new things all the time." Also during that session with media members, Romo was asked about entering the 10th training camp of his career. He responded: "I didn't play for the first 3 12, I missed basically a full season in another one. I guess I've only played five, 5 12 seasons of football, and it kind of feels like that. But 10 is definitely a bigger number." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
