So what were Romo and T-New up to on Friday? Following around a 35-year-old amateur golfer at the Masters who lives in Irving and was once the runner-up to Tiger Woods in the 1994 amateurs.
So [Trip] Kuehne made his final run around Augusta, with famous friends following him, such as Tony Romo and Terence Newman of the Dallas Cowboys and sister-in-law-to-be Venus Williams.
The guy qualified for the Masters and wanted one shot at making the cut. He came up short.
Some of the top players in attendance on Friday included TCU defensive ends Tommy Blake and Chase Ortiz, Colorado cornerback Terrence Wheatley and Texas defensive tackle Frank Okam.
The wild card among this bunch is likely Blake, who at one time was considered a solid first-round pick. But after undergoing a tumultuous senior season at TCU where he missed five games for a non-disclosed illness, Blake appears to be turning things around again.
Meanwhile, the Breerman weighs in here.
Colorado cornerback Terrence Wheatley, widely considered the top prospect at the event and a possible second-round pick, came after visits to Cleveland, Baltimore and New England over the last week. The Plano East alum declined to participate in testing after running a 4.37 40-yard dash at the combine, but he went through position drills and met with coaches.
His agent, Manny Arora, said Friday afternoon that Jones will apply for reinstatement to the league Tuesday.
Arora remains confident that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will reinstate Jones before the start of training camps, which begin in late July.
Don Banks lists the Cowboys as the #4 team with the pressure on in this draft. His reasons are having two first round picks so you have to produce, our desire to win now after going 13-3 but losing in the playoffs again, and that we got the new stadium coming and Jerry wants a winner moving in there.

Also from the DMN blog, star of stage and screen Tony Curtis signed on to be a tight end for us again this year.
Hey, Tom Orsborn must have seen our pick in the Mocking The Draft mock draft. He’s on board with Antoine Cason and writes a glowing article. But Orsborn says wait until #28. Heck, either way we still got the two we wanted in the mock, well at least the two the majority of the community wanted.
