Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is playing in the Azalea Invitational Golf Tournament a report said on Wednesday.
This might not seem like a big deal because many NFL players play a lot of golf during the offseason, but Tony Romo used to play a lot of golf but quit after multiple back issues during the 2013 season.
“You’ve got to get yourself healthy then figure out where you’re at and go from there for everything,” Romo told The Dallas Morning News about giving up the game in 2014. “It’s not just golf. It’s a way you live life.
“I don’t think about it as [giving up] golf. It’s just life. You want to give yourself the best chance to succeed on the football field.”
Romo, 36, is in limbo after saying goodbye to the Cowboys fans when free-agency started, but has not yet been released by the team and is still under contract.
Romo missed most of the 2016 season after fracturing a vertebra in his back. The injury saw Rookie Dak Prescott step in and lead the Cowboys to the best record in the NFC before exiting the playoffs in the divisional round.
The Houston Texans are considered a front runner for Romo if he decides to continue his career and is released by the Cowboys. Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas is reporting that the Romo situation could be completed this weekend.
That gives no indication of how it will end, but an answer
