Despite his quarterback being now 35 years old, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones opened training camp by saying this version of Tony Romo is the best he has seen in years.

Romo is proving Jerry right. The quarterback went through practice on Tuesday against the Rams, which marked the first time since 2013 Romo has practiced four days in a row.

Romo did not practice more than two straight days last year because of off-season back surgery. The 13-year veteran led the NFL in passer rating and completion percentage in 2014 and says the back is feeling good.

"If you are feeling like you can go, then i am going to go," Romo said. "Practice to me is enjoyable, it is competitive. We can get better, its time to improve, and work on your techniques. When you have a bunch of people you care about, it makes it enjoyable to go through the process and whole journey."

Head coach Jason Garrett added,"He was a full participant, he practiced virtually everyday in the OTA's and mini camp. So he is in a different place right now than the last couple of years."

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
