It cost Dallas QB Tony Romo $9,000 to withdraw from the Colonial Pro-Am on Wednesday so he wouldn't miss one of the Cowboys "voluntary" organized team activities. Romo had agreed to play in the Colonial event well before he knew there would be a scheduling conflict with what was essentially a 7-on-7 drill, and could have gotten away with not showing up.

If only Roy Williams could cover receivers like the media has covered Roy Williams over the last couple of weeks. Matt Mosley dedicates a column to the Story of Roy, a never-ending saga of confusion. I say confusion because no one can quite pin down what’s going on with

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stepped in and made sure Smith left respectfully. Jones said he would ''always see the star on Emmitt's helmet'' and that Smith would be welcome to return in some capacity after his playing days.
The decision, one that benefited Smith and the team he loved, was made after several individual meetings between Smith and Jones. And today, a retired Smith is offering advice to new Cowboys running back Felix Jones.
