Former Quarterback Tony Romo recently retweeted a video of his incredible touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray from a 2013 match between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins.
The video shows Romo’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Wide Receiver Dez Bryant who dived in the end zone to catch the ball. However, the Quarterback only clearly recalls his season-ending surgery which resulted from a back injury.
The match was an important one for both teams as it was the semi-final match for the NFC East Title. Romo threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray in the fourth quarter with only 1:08 left on the clock. The Cowboys beat the Redskins by one point courtesy the throw.
Romo made news in February when it was reported that he has extended his contract with CBS for a decade more. His deal is worth $180 million over the next 10 years and he is set to make $17.5 million annually. Tony is the first sports analyst to score an eight-figure contract.
In his 14-year long career, Romo only played for the Dallas Cowboys. He even won the All-American Award and Walter Payton Award. He has 248 passing touchdowns in his career and always managed to bring out the best in the players surrounding him.
After last week’s ‘The Match II’, Peyton Manning teased by saying, “Showcase guys like Steph Curry and Michael Jordan or Tony Romo and Patrick Mahomes, who are all good golfers, elite talents, and have great personalities.”
Tony was of NFL’s elite Quarterbacks and with social distancing becoming the norm, Romo seems to have taken to amateur golfing. He participated in an invitational 54-hole event featuring several PGA Tour pros and top amateurs. The entry fees charged for the event were donated to the caddies. “More than anything, you’re trying to do good for some small causes,” Romo said. “Everyone in our position has helped out in a lot of different ways and it’s great just to see.“
