Tony Romo gives Rangers' Elvis Andrus advice on recovering from the national spotlight

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus committed three errors in a single inning during a clinching Game 5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays last fall and Tony Romo, of course, can relate.

Romo didn't let that terrible hold against the Seahawks in the 2006 playoffs affect the rest of his career, and when he joined the Rangers during a recent training session, he told Andrus the same thing.

Per the Ben & Skin Show on 105.3 the Fan and the Dallas Morning News:

On what he learned the most from Romo:

"It was my question, it was how did he deal if he has struggling season with him being the center of attention, him being the quarterback for the most popular team in America, which is the Cowboys. He just told me it's going to happen. He wished and he pray for everybody to have a career without having a bad year or a bad moment, but it doesn't define you as a player, it doesn't define you as an athlete and sometimes things are meant to happen. He said, 'What happened to you, I know what happened to you. I saw the game. I can relate to that. I know that's going to make you a better player. It has made you a better person right now. A lot of moments in your life are made to happen to make you step up.' "

The rest of what Andrus said can be found here.
