Tony Romo is really trying to get teams to take the bait.
In another move that said “hey! I’m retiring! I mean it,” former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suited up with the Dallas Mavericks to participate in the team shoot around.

Here’s the team photo, a rare souvenir for the fan who loves all things “confuse your friends 30 years from now.”

Romo was given the full package experience, even having his name over a locker in the locker room.
However, his visit with the Mavericks provided the same frustrations that ended his tenure with the Dallas Cowboys. When it came time for the game, he didn’t sniff regulation.

Lucky kid. There was obviously increased media presence prior to the Mavericks shoot around. While most players continued past the cameras and reports without batting an eye, Harrison Barnes commented that it was “just a normal shoot around today” Cheeky.’
Tony Romo’s farewell tour will conclude in the booth at CBS at the beginning of the 2017 football season.
