Dallas Cowboys News & Notes: More Roster Moves, Tony Romo Speaks On His Best Attributes

The Dallas Cowboys are back at practice today for their 16th session of training camp. It's business as usual, some cuts, some additions, football is almost here.

After a day off, the Cowboys are back out on the practice fields in Oxnard to continue their preparation for the 2015 season. However, they will first start piecing together their roster for preseason contest number two.

Will Tony Romo Play In Any Preseason Games? - Tom Ryle - Blogging The Boys
A shaky situation with starting offensive linemen may make putting the quarterback on the field for any preseason games just too risky. Our Tom Ryle questions whether Romo should take any part in the preseason.

This year, with a very strong slate of opponents in the first half of the schedule, the Cowboys need to come out of the gate strong. If the starting offensive line in the remaining preseason games still is relying on players like Darrion Weems, Mackenzy Bernadeau and La'el Collins, is it wise to even put Romo out there in games that don't mean anything at all in the long run?

Cowboys Sign 3 Players And Waive 4, Including RB Seastrunk - Rob Phillips - Dallas Cowboys
The constant churning of the roster continues as the Cowboys worked out a few more guys and got rid of some current players on the roster including running-back Lache Seastrunk. It just seems like he wasn't ever what the Cowboys were looking for.

Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo gets it done from the pocket, too-Todd Archer - ESPN
Though many folks love to take about some of the dazzling plays we've grown accustomed to, Tony Romo prefers the accuracy part of his game.

"I think if you ever sat down and watched tape you’d find me in the pocket is probably a little bit higher level play than you probably understand," Romo said. "When I say that, I mean that obviously you get credit for making a guy miss and making a play, but that might happen twice in a game. I think the real gift of playing the quarterback position is, for me, getting through five guys in 1.3 seconds."

Tony Romo happy to share commitment, memories with Cowboys’ Jason Witten - Jon Machota - Dallas Morning News
Tony Romo dishes on his special relationship with his 'security blanket' Jason Witten, and just how special it is to be in the trenches with him every Sunday.

"He literally is like a brother to me. And I think he’ll always be that way. I think Jason, he’s just the best. I don’t even know how to describe it. On the field, off the field, I just like hanging around with him."

Cowboys blame cheap shots by Rams as fight igniters - Drew Davison - The Star Telegram
Andrew Gachkar had a few words for the way practice escalated the other day and believes it was 'cheap shots' that fueled the entire ordeal.

"He cut me. You don’t do that in an NFL practice," Gachkar said. "Tensions were already high, but you just don’t do that in an NFL practice unless it’s told to everybody. Usually you’re tackling at that point too."

Zack Martin On Stinger: "A Little Scare, But Everything’s Fine" - Rob Phillips - Dallas Cowboys
Martin took some time out to alert the media that he will be okay, and likely to miss a week. Martin said surely this is a learning experience.

Martin sustained the injury while blocking in team drills early in Tuesday’s practice. Team medical staff carefully attended to him for several minutes before he sat up and walked to the locker room on his own for examination.

"I could have kept my head up for sure (on the play)," Martin said. "Definitely a learning experience there."

Jerry Jones Is Excited About The Cowboys Pass Rush - Dawn Macelli - Blogging The Boys
Jones recently addressed the improvements made along the defensive front and how pleased he is with the progress.

"One of the keys to pass rushing is to be quick and then about the time they try to adjust half-ass off balance, then you put that power to them and boy, you got him back at the quarterback. He is outstanding, and then he does that with a passion of some of the top passionate players we've ever had around here. Boy, he makes a difference."

Think fast ... what trait is Tony Romo proud of? It's not his escapability - David Moore -Dallas Morning News
Moore touches on the comments from Romo about what he's proud of and offers some insight on to what makes the Pro-Bowler tick in his 13th year.

Those who fear a healthy Romo will be emboldened to take risks and extend plays in a way he didn’t last season are misguided. Those who believe Murray’s departure will tempt No. 9 to fall into his old, improvisational ways and compromise the efficiency that set him apart in 2014 are missing the point.

Charlotte Jones Anderson, Cowboys EVP and Chief Brand Officer, talks Women in Business with Huffington Post - 5 Points Blue
In a football world, we don't often take enough time to recognize what women have accomplished in the sport. Charlotte Jones-Anderson is a big part of the Cowboys' success and has been a pioneer for the NFL.

We weren’t handed a playbook, but instead had to learn as we went along, trying and sometimes failing, but constantly searching for creative solutions- innovative solutions to the challenges that arose daily. It was this high tolerance for ambiguity, for diving into the unknown and taking risks that made me the leader I am today. Entering an entirely new industry forced my family, and me, to be adaptable, and led to us being extremely forward thinking, balancing innovation and evolution all while carefully valuing the traditions of those who came before us.

Mid-Day Report: Practice Scales Back Ahead Of 49er Game, Dez Nearing Return - David Helman - Dallas Cowboys
As the Cowboys prepare to take on the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday, they will practice without pads fro the remainder of the week. As Garrett would say, it's all part of the process.

"It’s part of the plan," said Cowboys coach Jason Garrett. "Certainly we adjust all the time about how we want to practice – drills, gear, all that kind of stuff. You have some convictions about how you want to do things, but you have to look at the landscape of your team."

Cowboys teammates praise Hardy as he works on weaknesses - Drew Davison - The Star Telegram
Greg Hardy has done his best to stay away from all the madness of  scuffles and nonsense as he takes the intelligent approach to getting better day in, and day out.

"Getting a year off like that, he is still getting back into his rhythm and all those things, but he’s had some flash plays," defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said. "And he brings it every day. He practices hard every day, every down. He’s got a lot of pride. We’ve been extremely pleased so far."
