Jerry Jones Compares Learning From Romo to Getting Harvard Degree

Tony Romo is one of the premiere signal callers in the NFL, so I can see how Jerry Jones believes being his backup for a few years could be the ultimate internship.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he believes Romo will remain the starter of his team for the next four-to-five years, but the speculation remains that a signal caller needs to be in place to take the reins from the quarterback.

Jones says Romo would be the perfect mentor.

“If a player came in here and played behind him three or four years, he would come out with a Harvard degree in how to play quarterback in my mind,” Jones said, according to the Rob Phillips of the Cowboys’ official site. “He would be that influential. And it would open up an area of how to play the game that we all would agree has a certain unique style to it – Romo.”

Romo’s contract ensures that he cannot be released for the next two years due to huge cap numbers, so either a rookie or young veteran will be asked to sit and learn until at least the 2018 season.
