Jones expects more from Romo after big contract

The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, has newly invested $108 million of his own money in the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, Tony Romo.

And it sounds like he’s really going to make him work for it.

Jones already said publicly back in April that he wanted Romo to put in some “Peyton Manning-type time on the job,” this meaning he expects Romo to really geek out about football (and possibly host Saturday Night Live).

Basically it amounts to Romo being more involved in the game plan and play calling, and Jones reiterated that to NFL.com this week.

“When you give somebody $100 million, you would like to get every ounce of anything they can bring to the table to win a football game,” Jones said. “He’s outstanding on offensive concepts and he’s got a vantage point very few people have. So anything he can bring fro the concept to the field is going to make us a better football team.  I think it will.”

Romo has started for the Cowboys since 2006. He has won one career playoff game.
