Summary

Tony Romo is 36 years old and has broken his collarbone twice in the last year-plus. It's understandable that Dallas may need to start preparing for the post-Romo era. That said, the Cowboys huddle remains definitively in Romo's hands for 2016 and likely a few years beyond. In 2015 the Cowboys looked like a potential Super Bowl contender and Romo had an MVP-caliber season; leading the league in completion rate, yards per attempt and passer rating. Romo ranks 3rd all time in passer rating, 4th in adjusted yards/attempt and 4th in completion rate. He's an elite passer and is as good as anyone in the league when healthy. The Cowboys hope an offseason surgery known as the "Mumford Procedure" will seriously reduce the risk of future injuries to his collarbone. Assuming Romo has a clean bill of health in the preseason, expect the Cowboys offense to return to 2014 form (5th in points) versus last season's debacle (31st in points). (May 20)

Cowboys | No issues for Tony Romo (Thu May 12, 04:14 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (collarbone) has not had any issues physically so far during the Cowboys' offseason program, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said that Romo has almost completely integrated back into the offseason program, adding that Romo's back is feeling well, his shoulder seems fine, he's moving around well and he's made a lot of progress. Owner Jerry Jones said there's nothing negative about where Romo is in his current state. 'Everything they hoped to accomplish technically from appraisal of surgery has gone well. Everything he's done regarding his strength, everything regarding what he's wanted to do, he's been able to do,' Jones said.

Our View: The Cowboys addressed the quarterback position later in the draft, though they did try to trade back into the first to get Paxton Lynch so we know they aren't ignoring Romo's injury history. Still, Romo has no real competition and it will be a while until Dak Prescott is ready to take over, if he ever is. Romo, if healthy, should be a solid QB1 this season with the weapons he has on offense and what appears to be an great run game in the making, led by rookie Ezekiel Elliot.

Cowboys | Tony Romo ready to go (Tue May 10, 12:52 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has recovered ahead of the eight weeks at the back end of his recovery timetable, and he's expected to be a full participant in offseason practices later this month. 'He's looking good,' quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. 'We had two practices where we've been out here on the field with the guys and he's done everything. He's throwing, he's got good velocity on all of his throws, great movement in his legs. He looks like he's re-energized because he hadn't played, you know, missed the majority of the season. So he's real energized and anxious to get going.'

Our View: The Cowboys go as Romo goes. If he's healthy, the Cowboys can win a lot of games and make a deep push into the postseason. However, Romo has struggled to stay healthy for years and the team falls apart without him on the field. We'll see if a revamped rushing attack featuring first-round pick Ezekiel Elliott can help keep Romo fresh as the season goes along.
