Yesterday social media and the Cowboys haters and lovers around the world were in an uproar over the news that Tony Romo reported to camp weighting 236 pounds.
Romo of course put on a little weight after having surgery last month to remove a cyst from his back. Surgery or not, that didn’t stop his critics from coming out in full force.
Romo nor the Cowboys are worried about the weight gain, and according to Pro Football Talk, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett feels Romo is right where he needs to be.
“I don’t want to get into the details of what his playing weight is supposed to be, but he’s right around it,” Garrett said. “He’ll tell you right now, he just has to continue do the conditioning stuff necessary. Coming off an injury, that’s always a big concern. You’re trying to get the injury healed, but you got to make sure the condition is right. He’s worked very hard at. He’ll continue to do that throughout camp.”
The uproar over Romo is hilarious to me. Jason Garrett said that Romo was a pound over his playing weight, and according to reports, Romo has been in California for weeks now working on his back and his conditioning.

(One of those two years he missed 10 games with injury.) Romo seems to always have to prove something to someone, and granted its not...
