Not getting Tony Romo and Jason Witten to a Super Bowl

It’s been 22 years since the Cowboys last won a Super Bowl. One of Jerry Jones’ biggest regrets is that he didn’t do enough to help Tony Romo and Jason Witten get a title. Romo, who was 78-49 as the Cowboys ‘ starter from 2006-2015, retired after the 2016 season and Witten, a future Hall of Famer who didn’t miss a game from ’05-’17, did the same last week. The Cowboys made the playoffs four times during their careers though they never advanced beyond the divisional round.

There’s no doubt that the personal feeling I have about what Tony Romo and Jason Witten brought to the Cowboys during their career, I don’t think I’ve had a moment in the day that at some time I don’t reflect back on those good years and what they contributed, Jones said recently, via Pro Football Talk. And I’ve said this: From my standpoint, I can’t help but say, ‘Boy, I really dropped the ball not doing enough to get them in a Super Bowl. That will be and is my biggest regret about my time with the Cowboys.

Jones was close to both players, and their departures leave a leadership void in the locker room. I respected so much how unique Tony Romo’s contribution was both from a leadership standpoint as well as just his command of the game, his presence, everything out there, Jones continued.

One of the Buffalo Bills ‘ pair of first-round picks is locked down.

The Bills signed linebacker Tremaine Edmunds to his rookie contract, the team announced Saturday.

But circumstances in New Orleans could change ahead of training camp, and Peterson apparently won’t be far from Payton’s radar should that scenario develop.

That would the part where if all of a sudden we decided, hey, we’re going to look at additional players that are on the street, Payton said. And certainly his name — there’d be a few others — we have them on the board right now. Who’s available, veteran running backs, stacked on a board and graded. But, listen, he’s a tough player, warrior, and a great worker, and we have a good relationship.
