When asked how many times he’d heard about Cabo and Miami this week, Prescott had one reply: “None.” The 23-year-old insisted his plans for the weekend are subdued — perhaps there was a lesson learned when he approached an early December rivalry game against the Giants by going bottle-popping at the club with teammate Ezekiel Elliott, and promptly lost, 10-7 — and he vowed he wouldn’t take as much sun as Romo once did. “Yeah, anytime football’s on, I’m going to watch it.” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn’t as mum on the parallels to the Romo/Simpson/Cabo controversy, still denying the tropical vacation had any effect on his players’ preparation for the Giants game.
“I know it makes for real interesting dialogue, but I don’t think it had anything to do with what we were doing or what we didn’t do at all,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan, according to the Star-Telegram.
FOX Sports did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Dak’s arrival and subsequent success allowed Romo to leave as a sympathetic hero, complete with his own Be a Dallas Maverick for a Day experience.For a franchise that is defined by Vince Lombardi trophies, Romo’s exodus to the booth on the white horse is one of the most mystifying this town has ever seen.“I think that what you would say, ‘Well, that looked a little nonchalant.’ “I promise you every word that came out of them ad nauseam …Tony Romo was giving up ‘what ifs’ about what goes on, what might go on in the game. After telling Romo he would be released, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones appears to have pulled back on the deal, still hoping to secure a draft pick for the 36-year-old quarterback.According to Dallas Morning News reporter David Moore, Romo appears to be in a holding pattern with the Cowboys, with one source saying it would be “optimistic” to suggest the quarterback would end up with another team in the next week.And so any of these things that you might see that represents interest or looks like it will be a fit or those kinds of things, all of those have no basis at this point other than just a thought of the different teams or different people that are involved and I wouldn't have any consideration or comment or speculate on what might fit because I don't think that anyone has that feeling at this particular point, the timing," Jones said, according to Star-Telegram.Well, some people has suggested that Jones might be keeping things under wraps for now, but Mike Florio of NBC Sports believes that the potential trade was merely a speculation.Dak Prescott is clear about his pre-playoff plans: No international getaway. “Good try.” With the Cowboys entering the playoffs as the NFC’s top seed and not playing until the following weekend, Prescott’s bye week unsurprisingly drew comparisons to Romo’s nine years ago, the last time Dallas was in this position. “Yes,” the rookie quarterback said, according to ESPN.
