Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and 11-time Pro Bowler tight end Jason Witten have been teammates since 2003. The 33 year-old Jason Witten believes his 35 year-old friend - Tony Romo, can play as long as he wants to play.
According to Jason Witten, the Cowboys’ star tight end, he and Romo have another four of five seasons together in Dallas. "If we do it like last year we can,” Wittentold The Dallas Morning News. “But I mean, I try not to look that far ahead,” Wittensaid, Jason Witten Navy Jersey. “I think you just go one year at a time. For him, he played as well as he’s ever played. I think the way he’s handled the back and the way he’s on top of his body, I think he can play as long as he wants to play.” Romo, for what it’s worth, believes it’s the Cowboys’ impressive offensive line that will help lengthen his career, keeping the quarterback off his back and under center.
Coming into the 2015 NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys are an organization with a lot of questions, most of which involved the team’s offseason. To be sure, there was no evidence that Romo is slowing down on display in 2014. He might have had his best season ever, throwing for 3,705 yards, 34 touchdowns and just nine interceptions while leading the Cowboys to their first NFC East title since 2009. The performance came as no surprise to Witten. Tony Romo told The Dallas Morning News: “When you have a good offensive line like we do, the though definitely crosses your mind to ensure you do everything possible to play longer than maybe you had envisioned. We’ll reassess that in a few years...”
Romo, who turned 35 last month, played well enough to put himself in MVP consideration in 2014. The Cowboys won their first playoff game since 2009 by defeating the Detroit Lions in the wild-card round, but then fell to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round. Most fans felt it was a wildly successful season for a team that had three consecutive 8-8 seasons. Tony Romo Cowboys Jersey. But Romo and Witten are striving for something greater. “That’s not the standard for me, that’s not what I want, and I think that’s not what anybody in the organization wants to see,” Witten said. “Last year was good, but we’re trying to be better than that.”
