Dallas Cowboys don’t need to draft Tony Romo’s replacement
While the Dallas Cowboys continue to stand behind Tony Romo as their starting quarterback, many have brought into question whether or not he has what it takes to lead America’s team to the promised land.
This lack of confidence in Romo has led many to believe that the Cowboys will address the quarterback position this offseason, whether it be via the 2013 NFL Draft or free agency. Even former Dallas gunslinger Troy Aikman isn’t convinced that Romo is the Cowboys’ long-term answer.
“I don’t think they need another quarterback, to make that clear, but because of Tony’s age, they certainly have to start addressing who the guy is going to be that comes in after him,” Aikman said.
Not exactly a glowing vote of confidence from the man that Romo was supposed to take after when the Cowboys handed him the reins to the offense. Still, a comment from a former superstar shouldn’t be enough to alarm the Dallas faithful.
Romo will be at the ripe age of 33 when the 2013 NFL season finally rolls around. Between now and then, he’s likely to sign a long-term contract with the Cowboys that will cement his place as their starting quarterback for at least a few more seasons. Especially with a capable Kyle Orton still providing support from the No. 2 spot, it doesn’t seem that the Cowboys are in a position of dire need at the quarterback spot.
Even if they were in the market for a promising young quarterback who could develop for a couple years, it’s not like the 2013 draft class has much to offer in that department. There’s no sure-bet passer that will be available this upcoming April, which means that, unless the Cowboys plan on using an early-round pick on a quarterback, they wouldn’t be drafting anything more than a project.
Despite the fact that Romo stumbles at the most inconvenient of times, Jerry Jones and Co. are too stubborn to admit that he isn’t the quarterback who’s going to get them back to the Super Bowl. More than likely, it’ll be a few more years before that fact finally dawns on them.
Until then, enjoy the untimely letdowns.
