By Randy Maltz – Founder/Editor Silver and Blue Report & Hook ’em Report

Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys, CowboysTony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys was not selected in the 2003 NFL Draft, Romo signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys.  Check out the list of other quarterbacks drafted in this class.

After two seasons as a holder, Romo replaced the Cowboys’ previous starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe during a game against the New York Giants in the 2006 season. Romo was a Pro Bowl selection for the 2006, 2007, and 2009 seasons, all seasons in which the Dallas Cowboys made the playoffs. Additionally, Romo has broken Dallas Cowboys team records including most games with at least 300 passing yards and games with three or more touchdown passes.  Since 2006, Romo has a higher passer rating than any other NFL quarterback in the 4th quarter of a game.

There was little drama when the draft began with the Cincinnati Bengals selecting Carson Palmer, as Palmer had agreed to contract terms with the Bengals the previous day. He became the first Heisman Trophy winner selected first overall in the draft since Vinny Testaverde in 1987.
