Tony Romo will head off to the broadcast booth after 14 seasons in the NFL. Romo will join CBS Sports as a game analyst.
What is Romo’s legacy? He had a lot of good moments, but not enough great moments. He is 21st in touchdown passes(248) in NFL history. He is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in touchdown passes, QB rating and yards; all those numbers are better than Hall of Famers and former Cowboy greats Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach. He had 30-game winning drives, which is better than Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Terry Bradshaw, Dan Fouts, Ken Stabler, Kurt Warner, Aikman and Staubach to name a few. However, most people only remember the failures; dropping the snap against the Seahawks, interception against the Giants in the playoffs (2007 season), and so much more. Romo falls short because of his playoff failures. He is 2-4 in the playoffs. In the end, Romo did not win enough when it mattered the most!
If Romo could have found a way to win one Super Bowl, maybe he would have a case.
The Verdict: Romo makes “The Hall of Good.”
Chad Johnson made a corner “Kiss the Baby” in Mexico this past weekend. Johnson, 39, played for Monterrey Fundidores of the Liga de Futbol Americano Professional(LFA).
This is the only game Johnson is expected to play.
Watch the highlights below:
The Tony Romo situation may end soon. According to the NFL Network, the Cowboys have given other teams permission to contact quarterback Tony Romo. Teams can now setup visits and workouts with Romo.
I think it is going to be difficult to trade Romo. Teams know that the Cowboys can’t keep Romo on the roster in 2017. Therefore, you wonder how much of a market there is for him. He’ll be 37 when the season starts; he makes a bunch of money, and his injury prone. Three good reasons why teams should just wait it out.
The concussion issue in the NFL will not go away. Former RB Charlie Garner told Pat Yasinskas of Sporting News that he suffered 12 concussions per year during his 11-year NFL career. Garner, 45, told Yasinskas the impact that those concussions have had on his life:
“I don’t have all my faculties anymore,” Garner told Pat Yasinskas “I can’t remember things. When I go to the mall or grocery store, I have to take one of my kids with me to remember where the car is parked. I have trouble remembering conversations I had five minutes ago. Bright lights bother me. I just don’t feel right all the time.”
Garner said doctors believe that he has Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE.
Garner played for the Eagles, 49ers, Raiders and Buccaneers during his NFL career.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Vikings’ RB Adrian Peterson will be visiting the Patriots on Monday. Peterson, 32, previously visited the Seattle Seahawks. The Patriots have had a dream off-season (Cooks, Gilmore, Allen); signing Peterson would be the cherry on top.
A Patriots’ employee, who had the Vince Lombardi Trophy in their car, was involved in a car accident in Maine on Friday night. Apparently, the employee’s car hit a deer. Fortunately for the Patriots’ employee, they were not hurt and the trophy was intact. The trophy was from the Patriots’ victory over the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.
Based off the tweet below by the Patriots, the trophy did get to its location on Saturday.
Ryan Leaf went through a rough stretch in his life. He dominated at Washington State, which led to him being the second pick by the Chargers in the 1998 Draft. However, things went awry from there. He flamed out in San Diego, and ultimately struggled during his other NFL stops. Leaf officially retired from the NFL in 2002. Leaf would struggle with drug issues after his career, and eventually he would serve jail time. Today, Leaf is sober and working to help others with their sobriety.
Kudos to Ryan Leaf!
Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson put a hurting on Alabama’s defense in back to back National Championship games; the second time around he was able to win a title. Alabama football fans have a long memory! Watson tried to go to a restaurant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but he was not welcomed. Because he was not welcomed, Watson would leave the restaurant.
SB Nation reports that the manager of the restaurant stated that Watson was not kicked out.
Here is the video below:
Today and any day is a good day to be Tom Brady. Beautiful wife, five super bowl victories, and so much more!
On Friday, it just got a little better. Brady received a deferred signing bonus payment of 14 million dollars. The payment is from the contract extension he signed last season.
What a country!
Former NFL great Randy Moss has turned in his football cleats, and put on a different pair of football cleats. You see, Moss, 40, signed with the Charlotte Independence of the USL (United Soccer League). Moss will be available for the season opener on April 1st.
